VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR

"Mathematics"

Here be numbers transcendental,

On an imaginary axis spun,

Decimal places without limit

And zero and one.

Mathematics,

Simply pure beyond belief.

E to the power of i times pi plus one is zero

E to the power of i times pi plus one is zero

E to the power of i times pi is minus one

E to the power of i times pi is minus one

A single function, exponential,

Just one addition must be done...

Multiplication in completion

Of zero, of one.

Mathematics,

Just so "wow" it brooks belief.

(You'd better believe, you'd better believe it.)
