Well Sins, I generally don't make any jokes on a serious request for lyrics, but this one was just laying there and I couldn't resist. BTW, I've searched some but I don't have a clue as to what to search.

GUEST....Do you have any fragments of actual lyrics or anything......something??? Outside of that, we can only hope that this rings a bell with someone........Of course that could take an "infinity." .....oops.......

There is a Robert Service poem about a square who fell in love with a triangle. However the triangle preferred a cube.
The ending is something like:
"now she dotes on her kids, such cute pyramids, in a world of three dimensions"
I THINK it is called Maternity. I have heard it sung, but the tune was not very memorable.

Tom Lehrer has several other math songs, as does Phil Hose & family (Children's Music Network), but what's the differential?
