Hey Serena, do your chore
Take the garbage out the door
I can’t Daddy, I learned in math
That I can’t do it any more
It can’t be true Serena
Your teacher is crazy
You can walk out the door
You’ve done it many times before
Halfway there Dad, and half of what’s left
And half of what’s left, it never ends
Infinity gets in the way
I heard my teacher say
Infinity gets in the way
I heard my teacher say
Infinity is so big
Infinity takes forever
But is there a way around it?
Can we think of something clever?
Let’s go to a movie instead
Let’s go Daddy, let’s go ahead
I’d like to Serena, but too bad
We can’t do it your teacher said
Halfway there, and half of what’s left
And half of what’s left, it never ends
Infinity gets in the way
I heard you say
I have an idea, a plan
Maybe Daddy we can
Infinity may be really big
But I can hold it in my hand
Infinity gets in the way
I heard my teacher say
Infinity is so big
Infinity takes forever
But there is a way around it
If we think of something clever

Take a square and shade a half
Then shade half of a half
On and on and on and on
Always shading half
Infinity in a square
Infinity hiding in there
It’s a math surprise Serena
That is so much fun to share
Infinity gets in the way
I heard my teacher say
Infinity is so big
Infinity takes forever
But there is a way around it
If we think of something clever
Half of a square
And a quarter and an eighth
On and on and on and on
The fractions make a whole
So we can do it Daddy
We can go to the movie
But first Serena do your chore
Take the garbage out the door
Infinity is not in the way
This is what I say
Infinity is so big
Infinity takes forever
But there is a way around it
If we think of something clever
