The Lyrics

Ah, the time spent in dif eqs...
A long, long time ago...
I can still remember
How mathematics used to make me smile.
And I knew that way back when,
To give me only, paper and pen
that I would be contented, for a while.

But something came that makes me shiver
with ode45 and quiver.
Not just sines and cosines
but simulink and inline.

I can't tell you how long I tried
To deal with version 6.5,
and now I feel my brain is fried
I wish Matlab would die.

So I cry with a frustrated sigh,
another run time error,
and I still don't know why.
and now I've gone and kissed my dif grade goodbye
Singin' « How I wish that Matlab would die, »
" How I wish that Matlab would die"

hold on, make those axis tight
then maybe we'll get the problem right,
lemme quick check page nineteen
are contour graphs not so tough?
do you think we commented enough?
And why can't our vector tails be seen?

If only I had taken notes,
I would have put dx in quotes.
meshgrids I despise.
must remember to vectorize!

throw cell divides in here and there
Then attempt a for loop if you dare,
make sure to give the TA evil glares
I wish Matlab would die.

Here's to Mathworks!
I cry with a frustrated sigh,
another run time error,
and I still don't know why.
and now I've gone and kissed my dif grade goodbye
Singin' « How I wish that Matlab would die, »
" How I wish that Matlab would die"
