Math, Oh Math
The memories we've made
Your equations so difficult
Your concepts so confusing
No matter how hard I try
To make the grade
You always throw me for a loop
Math, Oh Math
The memories we've made
All your complex formulas
All your complicated questions
To believe I've made it this far
Sometimes is quite hard
I try to solve your problems
Your variables get in my way
Math, Oh Math
The memories we've made
I have all the books
I have all the notes
Why you still make no sense
Is quite a mystery
Quite a mystery to me
Say that it's easy
Say there's nothing to it
Still I say,
Math, Oh Math
The memories we've made

The author's comments:
Math classes have been the core for most of the frustration I've experienced in school. One day, while sitting in class, feeling overwhelmed by the notes being given, I expressed all the pent up frustration on paper. Now, I can look at a math problem and think "Math, oh math! The memories we've made!"
