Lyric © 9/8/2011 Lawrence M. Lesser
may sing to the tune of the same-titled song by Suzanne Vega and Stephen Addabbo from the 1986 film Pretty in Pink
If you want me, you can find me
Left of center, down the long scale:
In the skewness, down the left side,
In the sparseness of the long tail.
When they ask me "What shape describes your graph?",
I always answer: "Left-skewed (left-skewed)."
I think they know that my skew is negative;
I think they think my mode is plain rude.
But I'm only in the long tail of the density,
Far away from the modal view--
And if you want me, you can find me
Left of center, wondering about μ,
wondering about μ.....
