I Got You Bayes

Lyric copyright by Matthew Finkelman
may sing to the tune of "I Got You Babe" (Sonny Bono and Cher)

They say that your assumptions are strong.
You have your critics, but I know you can't be wrong.
Well I don't know if your prior is true
but you got me, and Bayes-ie I got you.

Bayes, I got you Bayes, I got you Bayes . . .

Minimize average risk.
I can't stand frequentists.
When the prior's bad it might let you down,
But do not get scared Persi's always around.

You're so easy to learn, you're so easy to see
Unless you're taught from chapter 4 TPE
We'll never forget you, never at all,
at least until after we finish the quals.
