Listen to the Math Submit Correct Lyrics

You've been famous since your birth
A silent one it was till they told me, "It's a girl", and everybody gasped
I know how to raise you right, teach you how to read
And your math, yeah, toys, spelling, names, alphabet and how to be polite

You've been famous since your birth
A silent one it was till they told me, "It's a girl"
And everybody said, "You and your atlas know it all"
Let the corners curl 'cause if you go by night you'll hit the coast for sure

It's a ruse, its a laugh, experts they agree, listen to the math
Australopithecine, rekindle your heart
These hospital machines are state of the art

I put down my middle name in the back of her book
And signed it just in case our work was overlooked
'Cause I got one more up my sleeve, bring it out tonight
'Cause if I am the joke then you're the punch line

It's a ruse, it's a laugh, experts they agree, listen to the math
Australopithecine, rekindle your heart
These hospital machines are state of the art

But it's the art of the state that's gonna keep me awake
I need a second opinion not a second to waste
