A Thinking Thing

Lyrics and Performance by Vicki Young
Melody: "Love Ain't No Thinking Thing"

I’ve been thinking ‘bout this math situation –

Problem-solving and everything else.

I’ve come to a logical conclusion:

Math’s more than just a book on a shelf!


Math is a thinking thing – left brain/right brain,

But it goes a little deeper than that.

It’s intellectual, conceptual, valid explanations –

Conclusions that are based on fact.

There may be many parts to analyze.

We always have to ask the question, "Why?"

Math is, math is …

A thinking thing.


Just take algebraic equations,

All those proofs in geometry.

Gray matter is what we have to start with

When we want to solve math’s mysteries!
