The Lyrics

To aid in maintaining the proper meter, I have made each line to represent four measures (counted in 4/4 time) from the original song.
That's great, it starts with the number three, point one four, and then it goes and goes for eternity

Three point one four one five nine two
Six five three five eight nine seven nine
Three two three eight four six two six
Four three three eight three two seven nine

I could keep going, the numbers keep flowing,
Used in geometry and trigonometry
Irrationality is its reality
Oh my heck!

Five zero two eight eight four one nine
Seven one six nine three nine nine three
Seven five one zero five eight two zero
Nine seven four nine four four five nine

Burning out my brain, and then I will go insane
Going indefinitely on towards infinity
Never ending, mind bending, All night, new height
No fright, using all my might

If there's an end to pi we don't know it.
If there's an end to pi we don't know it.
If there's an end to pi we don't know it.
My guess is nine.

Two three zero seven eight one six four
Zero six two eight six two zero eight
Number freaks, math geeks will spend several weeks
Memorizing, analyzing, because reciting is exciting

Leonhard Euler with his ruler liked to show the ratio
Perimeter divided by diameter, twenty-two over seven
Approximation estimation, interpolation, calculation
Close enough, math is tough, but fascinating stuff

Use it with tangent, use it with cosine
And also sine.


If there's an end to pi we don't know it.
If there's an end to pi we don't know it.
If there's an end to pi we don't know it (I'm thinking that my mind is blown).
My guess is nine.
My guess is nine.


If there's an end to pi we don't know it (I'm thinking that my mind is blown).
If there's an end to pi we don't know it (I'm thinking that my mind is blown).
If there's an end to pi we don't know it (I'm thinking that my mind is blown).
My guess is nine.

The other night I dreamt of guys, all of them so very wise, all them quite smart, René Descartes
Leonhard Euler, Euclid and Newton, Pythagoras, torus, conic section, cube
They're mathematicians, statisticians, striving to be right
Right!

If there's an end to pi we don't know it (I'm thinking that my mind is blown).
If there's an end to pi we don't know it (I'm thinking that my mind is blown).
If there's an end to pi we don't know it (I'm thinking that my mind is blown).
My guess is nine.

If there's an end to pi we don't know it.
If there's an end to pi we don't know it.
If there's an end to pi we don't know it (I'm thinking that my mind is blown).
My guess is nine.

If there's an end to pi we don't know it (I'm thinking that my mind is blown).
If there's an end to pi we don't know it (I'm thinking that my mind is blown).
If there's an end to pi we don't know it (I'm thinking that my mind is blown).
My guess is nine.

Should have gotten more Amiright love than you did for this parody, Danny Mew, as this is a difficult song to work with. Then again, you've been away for so long, everyone's treating you like a newbie -- ie, ignoring you
