lyrics

E=mc²

Been fighting an equation, quadratic in formation all night
Can't get it all to balance, can't get it all to come out right

x and y, coming over way too high
Getting in the way of pi
Making me cry
That Nobel prize, shrinking right before my eyes
Turning into see-through lies
Making me sigh

E equals MC squared, why didn't I think of that
A peer review of my papers
Grow a beard, wear a Homburg hat
Fame and adulation, doors open wherever I go
My picture in all of the papers
Just because of the things that I know

The truth is all revealing
I can see just where I'm at
Relatively speaking
There's a void underneath my hat

The numbers don't add up
My calculators gone on the blink
If you follow all my workings
You realise I'm thicker than I think

Science and me were never really meant to be
I love it but I just don't see
How to work that key
It's beautiful and elegant, it helps if you're intelligent
If your youth was not mis-spent
That's just not me

E equals MC squared, why didn't I think of that
A peer review of my papers
Grow a beard, wear a Homburg hat
Fame and adulation, doors open wherever I go
My picture in all of the papers
Just because of the things that I know

The truth is all revealing
I can see just where I'm at
Relatively speaking
There's a void underneath my hat
