Number Police

Musical performance of "Number Police," to the tune of Radiohead's "Karma Poilice." Mike Balzer on acoustic guitar and Sean Clapham on vocal.

Number police, arrest this limit
It don’t exist
The denominator
approaches zero

Number police
Arrest this line it’s  vertical
It’s slope is undefined
What does that mean? Oh.

This is what you get.
This is what you get.
This is what you get, when you divide by naught.

 

Number police,
My quadratic equation
Has no real roots
Its parabola never crosses zero

This is what you get.
This is what you get.
This is what you get, it’s complex.

For a minute there it made some sense, it made some sense…
