Melodie: Last Christmas (2012)

Refrain:
Last lecture I gave you a proof
but the very next day you showed me my fail
This time to save me from tears,
I‘ll present you something special.

(repeat)

My sweet proof is still wrong.
The next approach will surely come along
Tell me reader, do you understand it?
Well, neither do I, I don‘t comprehend it.

The paper I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying „q.e.d.“, I meant it!
Now I know what a fool I‘ve been
But reading it now, I know I will fail again.

Refrain:
Last lecture I gave you a proof
but the very next day you showed me my fail
This time to save me from tears,
I‘ll present you something special.

(repeat)

Oooohhhh
Oh oh, reader

The idea was great, and the error so small
And maybe the reader will not find it at all.
Let‘s see if it will stay unrecognized
And I will pass the course with it.
