"What's the Rule Now?"
lyrics by Benjamin Newman
ttto: "Martin Said to His Man", Trad.
/ D - - - / Em - A - / D - G A / G D A D /
Martin said to his man: why, man, why?
Martin said to his man, what's the rule now?
Martin said to his man: work it out as best you can
Thou hast well thunken man, what's the rule now?
How round is a circle long? -- pi, man, pi
How round is a circle long, what's the rule now?
How round is a circle long, the limit of a polygon
Thou hast well thunken man, what's the rule now?
Multiply points on a plane -- i, man, i
Multiply points on a plane, what's the rule now?
Multiply points on a plane, i squared plus one makes naught again
Thou hast well thunken man, what's the rule now?
The opposite of an exponent -- e, man, e
The opposite of an exponent, what's the rule now?
The opposite of an exponent, e to the log n equals n
Thou hast well thunken man, what's the rule now?
Rectangle most beautiful -- phi, man, phi
Rectangle most beautiful, what's the rule now?
Rectangle most beautiful, one plus its own reciprocal
Thou has well thunken man, what's the rule now?
Martin said to his man: why, man, why?
Martin said to his man, what's the rule now?
Martin said to his man: work it out as best you can
Thou hast well thunken man, what's the rule now?
