The Lyrics

from not paying attention in math usual....
I've had time to write a song
About my thoughts on L. Euler
But I haven't got my slide rule
Whether backwards or improved
Anyway you compute
With t's or y's or n-th roots
errors get in the way

And now, I'd like some time to
Integrate dpsi/dt of psi
or maybe finite differences..
then there are always Taylor series left
Anyway you find them
All you have to do is find them

I don't understand his method
this doesn't sit right with me
what don't I see?
what don't I see? (Duet)

Math Dork 1: And now it's time to calculate
Math Dork 2: Once you have determined

Math Dork 1: using step size h
Math Dork 2: to truncate or round

Math Dork 1: Alas I only finished half
Math Dork 2: approximate

Math Dork 1: And finish I suppose I never may
Math Dork 2: and my notes I ought to find

Math Dork 1: Anyway, you find them
Math Dork 2: without delay

Math Dork 1: the one thing I can tell you
Math Dork 2: thanks to Leonard Euler

Math Dork 1: Errors get in the way
Math Dork 2: local or global

Math Dork 1: Errors get in the way
Math Dork 2: local or global

Together: Errors get in the way.
