lyrics

Everything is algebra, algebra, algebra
Everything is algebra but life gets in the way

All the world is x and y
the answer works out every time
but I keep searching for some sign
to get to point b from point a.

Everything is algebra, algebra, algebra
All of life is algebra, but hearts get in the way

Sorting through the plans I plotted
every factor in its slot, except the
promises that I forgot
to keep along the way.

Everything is algebra, algebra, algebra
Everything is algebra but words get in the way

Rows and rows of fingers and toes
don’t add up any which way
and if the answer’s up to me
then all we can do is pray.

All the world is algebra, but we get in the way.

Line by line your equation looks fine
until I lurch into the fray…
If anyone can break algebra
count on me to lead the way.

Algebra is greek to me
but your blue eyes, they speak to me…
If algebra really is the key,
well, then who am I to say?
I guess everything’s OK.

Everything is algebra, algebra, algebra
All of life is algebra but we get in our own way.
