The Lyrics

I was bored and wrote this 15 minutes ago. I am on a competitive math team and so I wrote these.... lol I know I'm a loser! Well, enjoy them anyhow. By the way, if you don't know who Terry Kath is, he was a member of Chicago, a brilliant guitarist who is now dead. He has the (mis)fortune of having a last name rhyming with "math".
I wonder what's been on your mind
Baby I don't know, but on mine it's always math.
And though I doubt this song's intended
to be like this.... ask Terry Kath.

You'd rather be above a snake pit, on a thin balance beam.
You may think math is only something, in a nightmarish dream.
But I think it's damn fun to do!

Show me a sine
Show me a sine, girl.
We'll calculate
We will do just fine
Never give up
Our scores will be great!

Minus, plus, divide, or times
We won't need help, baby we can work it out.
You ask "What will the answer be?"
Here is my TI-83.

Although you may be apprehensive, just how bad could it be?
And if you end up having questions, you can just call on me.
We'll think and we will see this through.


I believe that math's a miracle, trig is really great!

Show me a sine
We'll calculate
Show me a sine
Show me a sine
We'll calculate
We will do just fine
Never give up
Our scores will be great!
