Tom Lehrer's - The Professor's Song
Music: "If You Give Me Your Attention"
from Princess Ida (Gilbert & Sullivan)
"If you give me your attention I will tell you what I am.
I'm a genius and a physicist (and something of a ham).
I have tried for numerous degrees, in fact, I've one of each,
Of course, that makes me eminently qualified to teach.
I understand the subject matter thoroughly, it's true,
And I cant see why it isnt all as obvious to you.
My lectures all are masterpieces, excellently planned,
Yet everybody tells me that Im hard to understand,
And I can't think why!
My diagrams are models of true art; you must agree,
And my handwriting is famous for its legibility;
When I write "gravitation", say, or any other word,
For anyone to say he cannot read it is absurd.
My demonstrations all get more amazing, every year,
Though, frankly, what they go to prove is sometimes less than clear.
And all my explanations are quite lucid, I am sure,
Yet everybody tells me that my lectures are obscure.
And I cant think why!"
