If necessity is the mother of invention

Then I'd like to kill the guy who invented this

The numbers come together in some kind of a third dimension

A regular algebraic bliss.

Let's start with something simple, like one and one ain't three

Any two plus two will never get you five.

There are fractions in my subtraction and x don't equal why

But my homework is bound to multiply.

Math suks math suks

I'd like to burn this textbook, I hate this stuff so much.

Math suks math suks

Sometimes I think that I don't know that much

But math suks.

I got so bored with my homework, I turned on the TV.

The beauty contest winners were all smiling through their teeth.

Then they asked the new Miss America

Hey babe can you add up all those bucks?

She looked puzzled, then just said

"Math Suks".

Math suks math suks

You don't even have to spell it,

All you have to do is yell it

Math suks math suks

Sometime times I think that I don't know that much

But math suks.

Geometry, trigonometry and if that don't tax your brain

There are numbers to big to be named

Numerical precision is a science with a mission

And I think it's gonna drive me insane.

Parents fighting with their children, and the Congress can't agree

Teachers and their students are all jousting constantly.

Management and labor keep rattling old sabers

Quacking like those Peabody ducks.
