"Some's (An Indefinate Number)"

Parody Written by:

Guy DiRito

The Lyrics

Some's an indefinate number,
It just means a few.
Few can be as bad as some,
When you're needin' a count of each and every one.

No, is the smallest amount that you could ever show.
Yes it's the total abstinence of things, you know.
Cause some's an indefinate number as I've told you so.
Some's an indefinate number that means just a few.

And it's no good to use 'more',
When you must convey,
That it's costing dimes for bits of time that you must pay.

Some's an indefinate number,
Some's an indefinate number,
Some's an indefinate number,
That you can't display,
That you can't display.

Some's an indefinate number,
Some's an indefinate number,
Some's an indefinate number,
That you can't display.

And it's no good to use 'more',
When you must convey,
That it's costing dimes for bits of time that you must pay.

Some's an indefinate number,
Some's an indefinate number,
Some's an indefinate number,
That you can't display.

Guy,I like the way that you used "needin' a count" in the 4th line,for the pacing-very good job on this.I like the idea. :-D TC

What's the fascination on this site with math parodies? Me and math do not get along at all, so I cringe whenever I see a math related parody. I usually like your stuff guy, but this one kinda gives me a headache. Sorry man. But since I usually like your stuff, I won't vote on this, and I'll let the math fans take care of that.

Great job, Guy!

How is this a math parody in any way? Now if it were about indefinite *integrals* on the other hand... too bad that has too many syllables. Anyway, I'm likewise impressed at your ability to make something so boring so amusing - still not quite as classic as my friend's improv skit about the use of semicolons, but still gets fives.

It's enough to bring back 'Schoolhouse Rock' and segments in elementary philosophy. Love it. More fives.

Guy - Well, the figures look right to me. A nice, concise job of explaining it. I ran a check-tape and the figures reconcile so "Favoring" you with 5's. Man, I am so far behind on looking at other folks stuff. I NEED my new PC, WHEN it is going to get here???
