The Lyrics

This series is on John Adams, a mathematician who wants Congress to declare a mathetocracy. However, he is such a snob that he must ask Mahmoud Ibn See, a rival of Richard Henry Lee, to propose.
My name is Mahmoud Ibn See; Assyria is my home
My name is Mahmoud Ibn See; Virginia ain’t my home
And may his horses turn to glue if I can deliver
Unto you a resolution on mathetocracy!

For I am TFA, the third family
In the Eastern colony of Assyria
Yes I am TFA, not the first family
in the newest colony in America
And may the British burn my sand if I can't deliver
To your hand a resolution on mathetocracy!

You see it's here-a-See, nay-a-Lee
And everywhere-a-See-a-See

Noocra-See, Meritocra-See, Logocra-See, Robocra-See
Democra-See, Kritocra-See, Autocra-See, Technocra-See

The TFA, the third family
In the Eastern colony of Assyria
And may his wife refuse my bed if I can't deliver
As I said a resolution on mathetocracy

They say that my friend Allah is everybody's God
I'll admit that my friend Allah in heaven is everybody's God
But I tell you, John, with pride, he leans
A little on the side of the Sees, the Sees of new Assyria!

You see it's here-a-See, nay-a-Lee
And everywhere-a-See-a-See
Here-a-See, nay-a-Lee
And everywhere-a-See

Look out! There's Ali See, Behzad See
And good ole Caliph Hami See
Yaghoub See, Jalil See

And Mahmoud I.!

That's me!
And may my blood stop running blue if I can't deliver
Unto you a resolution on mathetocracy!

Yes sir, by God, it's here-a-See, nay-a-Lee
Come on men join in with me!
Here-a-See, nay-a-Lee!

When do you leave?

I will call Joe C.
Here-a-See, nay-a-Lee!

When will you return?

Here-a-See, nay-a-Lee!
And I'll come back possibly!
Here-a-See, nay-a-Lee!
Everywhere a-See-a-See

Forward no!
I'd see the actual thing.
