### I’ll Write a Proof

*Lyrics by Tom Bodine*

* Sung to the tune of “I’m on a Boat” by The Lonely Island featuring T-Pain*

Aw snap! Get your pencils ready it’s about to go down! (Shorty, yeah)

Everybody in the place get your textbooks out!

And get out your binder, you know

We running this, let’s go

I’ll write a proof

I’ll write a proof

Everybody look at me ‘cause I’m gonna write a proof!

I’ll write a proof

I’ll write a proof

You gotta think real hard ‘cause we’re gonna write a proof!

I’ll write a proof

Fenway High School take a look at me!

Straight logic flowin’ out of Period “C”

Bustin’ 2 columns, diagrams, and labels, too

Can’t stop me, other sophomores, ‘cause I’ll write a proof!

Draw a picture, trick

And mark it with ticks

Don’t forget your vertical angles

‘Cause you’re so slick

I got my given info

And my statement to prove

Gotta link ‘em up with logic

Just to show that it’s true

I’m all meticulous, checkin’ details in it

My proof is perfect, gettin’ all the haters upset

‘Cause this ain’t preschool, you know our logic is sick

We writin’ proofs now, Omega, don’t you e’er forget!

We writin’ proofs and

We writin’ statements and

We back ‘em up with just the right reasons

You got sides and angles, and

You got angles and sides, and

A-I-P is the converse of our

P-A-I, yo!

Pick yo’ head up, this proof is REAL!

Stick with it, draw a picture – it’ll help ya!

Stick with it, label points – it’ll help ya!

Gotta know your definitions – it’ll help ya!

Then fight the proof and you will win – I tell ya!

Hey ma, if you could see me now

Triangles congruent, and my lines parallel

Gonna write 10 proofs in under an hour…

Like Kevin Garnett, anything is possible!

Yeah, never thought I’d write my own proof

Throw your pencil down and raise the roof

Omega

Look at me, oh

Never thought I’d see the day

When in Geometry I earned an A

Believe me when I say

I write proofs all day!

I’ll write a proof

I’ll write a proof

Everybody look at me ‘cause I’m gonna write a proof!

I’ll write a proof

I’ll write a proof

You gotta think real hard ‘cause we’re gonna write a proof!

(sha-sha-shorty, shorty, yeah)
