Statistics Heroes

Lyrics copyright Nyaradzo Mvududu
may sing to the tune of "Imagine" (John Lennon)

Imagine there's no Pearson
And there's no Spearman too
No correlation
Whatever can we do
Imagine all the factors
With no way to relate

Imagine there's no Gossett
And z test just won't do
'Coz sigma is a mystery
For samples you have two
Imagine all the difference
Without Student's t

People said they were dreamers
How could variance be fun?
I'm so glad for stats heroes
For the world is now a better one

Imagine there's no Fisher
And more groups to compare
Do not compound the error
Probe at the sum of squares
Imagine the assistance
From ANOVA man

People said they were dreamers
How could variance be fun?
I'm so glad for stats heroes
For the world is now a better one
