The Sine

Beware: stupid song parody...The first part of this popped into my head many years ago. I decided to look at the original lyrics and expand it into a full parody. My apologies for the partisian nature of the parody - much of it came from when I was more .. opinionated about arbitrary things like calculator choice and notations (and text editors, and ...). I really don't care about that kind of thing anymore.

"The Sine", a parody of Ace of Base's "The Sign"

I got a new calc
You would hardly recognise me, you're so bad
How can a person like me work with you?
Why did I bother, when you're not friendly to me?

Is enough enough?

I solved the sine
I opened my TI, and solved the sine
Math is demanding without understanding
I solved the sine, and without reversing my mind
No one's gonna start you up
To solve things like those you think you're for
(but really what're you for?)

Under the tough strain
For so many years I've laboured
Flipped around
Why did I bother? I have better things to do
It's enough to know...
