X squared over A squared

Minus Y squared over B squared

Set this equal to one and this is no force to be reckoned with

Even if you're a perfectionist ain't no correcting this

So first thing to remember

Graph the center

It's the only numerical figure in the numerator

So don't lose your temper

Now that you're on a winning streak there's no need to gamble

Or turn your life to shambles

Draw the correct rectangle

And receive your asymptotes' angles

Now to do this square the four numbers on the bottom

Then you got 'em

Now like north, south, east, and west

Drop 'em and plot 'em

Mathematicians who skip this are forgotten

They decompose become old and rotten

Next one to go is Osama Bin Laden

Yo math is the reason

The world could keep believing

Some cats say we're dying

But naw they're just deceiving

Cause math keeps on progressing and that's what I'm receiving

Now let's see what's in my back pocket

It's this mathematical topic

Which ranges from things microscopic

To space flight creating specs for a rocket

That's right math has a part in space exploration

Take into consideration

Without mathematicians calculations

We couldn't fill the world with high anticipation

The world wouldn't function

What would we do without mass production?

Without Televisions

And machines with mad precision

Your cars global position system

Will not be with

Without numbers

They'll be no paper to write

The very computer I write in

The car you ride is all thanks to numbers

Form our sewage that lies under

To beautiful stars of which we no longer wonder

Yo math is the reason

The world could keep believing

Some cats say we're dying

But naw they're just deceiving

Cause math keeps on progressing and that's what I'm receiving
