All we do is count by sixths and fourths and thirds

And your friends will try and tell you that to do this you have to be some kind of math nerd

Personally I find this thinking to be quite absurd

Six, four and three

Adding same kind is pretty EASY

Especially when you can see

1/6 equals 30 degrees

You count the 60's by three's and of course

The 45's are counted by fouths

You don't have to try just count to two pi

And you get there by 1/6ths, 1/4ths and 1/3rds

It's so easy I don't really have words

Can you believe it makes some of your classmates cry

because they can't count by 1/6ths, 1/4ths or 1/3rds to 2pi ?

And somehow they fail to see

That 30 is just 90 divided by 3,

And 180 divided by 3 is 60

So OF COURSE 30 degrees is pi over 6

The misunderstanding was easy to fix

Since 90 is pi over two multiply by a third and you're through

An half of 90 is 45, SO

Multiply 2 by 2 and you're good to go

If you try to tell me this stuff is hard

I will beg to differ and call you a tard

And then we can start talking about sin cos and tan

Just chant soh cah toa like you're a cave man

When applied to the unit circle you get x, y, and r

But just memorizing this won't get you too far

If you draw the special triangles you just divide them by 2

Make the hypotenuse 1 it's easy to do

Then stick them in the circle and move them around

All you do is count the sides as by now you've certainly found

And just keep counting; you see the theory is sound

Math is just numbers and all we do with numbers is count

With this simple knowledge the unit circle is easy to surmount

Now we take the whole thing and roll it around the the coordinate plane

And you end up with these beautiful wave forms that make kids insane

The period is two pi, but now up and down we go

Just look at the wave forms and you will know

What happens at pi and one and zero

Understand the concepts and then all they can do

Is change the numbers around on you

And it won't matter because you can see

All it is, is counting by fractions of pi whose denominators are 2, 6, 4 or 3

You count to one twice because pi is 180

Two pi is 360 and you're done

And you barely need hero zero

Although you definitely need no fun get back to one

And you use the rectangle to organize thought

Pythagoras' squares get you out of tight spots

Once you understand what it means to be same

It turns out you thinking math was hard

Was really quite lame.

You speak English: that's hard

Math is so much easier in so many regards

Five simple concepts

You master in baby steps

And now you know what I say is true

By the time I'm done with you there won't be a damh thing you can't do.
