The Lyrics

One's not the only-est number,
When you're in base two.
Two, a zero and a one,
Are the only-est members,
Just these numbers, son.

'O is just half of the variants
They'll ever show,
Yes, they're the only ingredients,
The one and 'O.

'Cause when you use binary numbers,
There is never 2.
2 as a binary number:
One 'O's the val-ue.

They work so good out in core,
Or a raid array.
But a 10 you'll find
Is less then nine, yes, less I say.

One's not the only-est number,
One's not the only-est number,
One's not the only-est number,
When you're in base two.

One's not the only-est,
One's not the only-est,
One's not the only-est number,
When you're in base two.

They work so good out in core or a raid array.

(Numbers)
One's not the only-est (number)
One's not the only-est (number)
One's not the only-est number
When you're in base two.

(Numbers)
One... (one's not the only-est number)
(When you're in base two.
(Numbers)
One's not the only-est number
When you're in base two.
(Numbers)
One's not the only-est number
When you're in base two.

Guy, you're squeezing every BIT out of this recent binary theme of yours! 101's

Good math parody. Forget how to use base 2 to say 555 :)

Say what...?? :D I was getting used to not knowing 0's and 1's in binary, now there's base 2? Good job...it paces excellently. 5's

Base 2 ( AFAIK) is using only zeros and ones to make other numbers 0=0, 1=1, 10=2, 11=3 and so on. Thanks Johnny, I see now that 101=5, so its good to remember stuff like that. :)
