Lyric copyright ©2006-2013 by Lawrence Lesser
may sing to the tune of "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" (Pat Benatar)
Well you're a real tough cookie in statistics class,
Doin' just average, enough to pass.
That's OK, just don't fit a line
'Til you view the data you're assigned!
Chorus: Hit me with your best plot!
Why don't you hit me with your best plot?
Hit me with your best plot - graph away!
Come on, you know graphs gotta look fair -
Like pictogram areas showin' their share.
Let zero be where the y-axis starts
And don't have a graph with unlabeled parts!
Well Hans Rosling took our long history
And animated data so we could see
What's a trend or a special case
As nations move through time and space!
