Find some way to square the circle.
Feet slipping, sliding on the level.
Connect to reason, is there anybody there?
Drum it in to me now if you dare.
Triangles by Isosceles.
Principles by Archimedes.
Amo, amas; even amat
make for one less way to skin the cat.
Two short planks –
Try my luck on another day
Must be thick as
two short planks –
That’s about all that I have to say.
Two short planks –
Pop the question: I sit the test
Must be thick as
two short planks –
Spin me round till I come to rest.
They say truth comes flooding if you let it.
But what happens if I just don’t get it?
I’m blissful in my sweet ignorance
and delight in my incompetence.
Two short planks –
Try my luck on another day
Must be thick as two short planks –
That’s about all that I have to say. Two short planks –
Pop the question: I sit the test Must be thick as two short planks –
Spin me round till I come to rest.
