Explanation of the math in this song
There's a delta for every epsilon,
But one condition I must give:
How sad, how cruel, how tragic,
This rank discrimination is not for us,
These lyrics were printed in American Mathematical Monthly, vol. 81, p. 612 (1974).
Here is a video from 1997 of Mr. Lehrer performing this song.
