King of the Mode

Lyric copyright by Dennis Pearl
may sing to the tune of "King of the Road" (Roger Miller)

Lectures for sale or rent, fifty topics that make no sense.
No loan - no school, I bet, I ain't got no internet.
Ah but, two hours of pushin' chalk,
could have been a two-minute talk.
I'm a man of means by no means, king of the mode.

Third moment x-bar to explain, notation to hang your brain.
Old worn out teaching views, I don't care if students lose.
I run old stories into the ground, short but not too profound.
I'm a man of means by no means, king of the mode.

I know every engineer I'm s'pose to train
All the students but none of their names
And every handout in every town
And every talk that ain't a talk 'cause no-ones around
I sing...

Lectures for sale or rent, fifty topics that make no sense.
No loan - no school, I bet, I ain't got no internet.
Ah but, two hours of pushin' chalk,
could have been a two-minute talk.
I'm a man of means by no means, king of the mode.
