Lyrics and Performance by Vicki Young

Melody:* "LOLLIPOP song"*

I - N - TERC - EPT spells intercept, intercept!

It’s the place a line will cross an axis, axis.

To graph a line, it really is the fastest, fastest!

I - N - TERC - EPT, you see;

First, change to standard form,

Cover up the “y” term,

So “x” can be free!

I - N - TERC - EPT spells intercept, intercept!

Next, you will cover up the “x” term, “x” term,

Solve for “y”, you’re starting to get really warm, really warm.

I - N - TERC - EPT, it’s true;

Plot these points where they belong,

On each axis; that’s their home,

Draw the line and you’re through!

I - N - TERC - EPT spells intercept, intercept!

Tell me: when is there only one, only one?

This should make it even more fun, more fun!

I - N - TERC - EPT, it’s true.

If it only has an “x” then the line is up and down,

With horizontals, it is true that only “y” is found.

And one point will do!
