Love By The Numbers

Love By the Numbers

In a world where math is spoken
And all songs are one to nine
Where books are all quadratic
And first names all are prime
There’s a place I want to show you
It’s beside the river eight
There’s a cozy little cottage
With a fractal for a gate
We will never be divided
If you come and live with me
We’ll multiply and show the world
That one and one make three
We’ll raise our little integers
Beside the flowing stream
We’ll school them in their numbers
And show them how to dream
In the evening when the sun goes down
And we have done our chores
I’ll show you my equation
And you will show me yours
