### 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

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
‘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)
