The Lyrics

Do you dream in black-and-white?
Every time of day
Everything you weigh
Every mark you make
Every temp you take
Is a measurement

Human beings compare
There's a standard there
Temperature you take
Time and mass and length
Standard measurement

Oh, can't you see that measurement's no trick
How a measurement can make it all so slick

Standard measurement
Time and mass and length
Temperature you take
Standard measurement
Is a measurement

For length I consult a meter stick
I use a gram to find the mass of brick
If I use liters I'll find the volume quick
Across the world we all use the simple trick
We keep using standard measurement

Oh, can't you see that measurement's no trick
How a measurement can make it all so slick

Standard measurement
Time and mass and length
Temperature you take
Standard measurement
Is a measurement

Everything you weigh
Every temp you take
Is a measurement

Standard measurement (Every time of day, everything you weigh
(Every mark you make, every temp you take)
Standard measurement (Human beings compare, there's a standard there)
(Temperature you take, time and mass and length)
Standard measurement (Standard measurement, time and mass and length)
(Temperature you take, standard measurement)
Standard measurement (Human beings compare, there's a standard there)
Ooh ooh (Temperature you take, time and mass and length)
Standard measurement (Every time of day, everything you weigh
(Every mark you make, every temp you take)
Standard measurement (Human beings compare, there's a standard there)
(Temperature you take, time and mass and length)
Standard measurement (Standard measurement, time and mass and length)
(Temperature you take, standard measurement)
Standard measurement (Human beings compare, there's a standard there)
(Temperature you take, time and mass and length)
Standard measurement (Every time of day, everything you weigh
Ooh ooh (Every mark you make, every temp you take)

Well you sure had me fooled... when I saw your title against the OS title I was worried that the pacing was going to be waaay off - but I like what you did there ;^) A very clever song that even made me not care about my maths inferiority complex, my measurement for this one is 555!
