Don't you think that I'm bound to react now?
Well, my fingers definitely turning to black now,
Yeah, maybe I'll put my love on ice,
And teach myself, maybe that'll be nice, yeah,

My books are sitting at the top of the stack now ,
The longer words are really breaking my back now,
Yeah, maybe I'll learn to understand,
Drawing a square with a pencil in hand, yeah,

Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh ah

Mathematically turning the page,
Unequivocally showing my age,
I'm practically center stage,
Undeniably earning your wage,
Well, maybe I'll put my love on ice,
Yeah, maybe that'll be nice, yeah,

Listen master, can you answer a question?
Is it the fingers, or the brain that you're teaching this lesson?
Oh, I can't tell you how proud I am
Writing down things that I don't understand,
Well, maybe I'll put my love on ice,
And teach myself, maybe that'll be nice, yeah.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.
