True Value

Lyrics copyright by Alan Reifman.
May sing to the tune of "Moon Shadow" by Cat Stevens

Within your CI, you get the true value, true value, true value,
With 95%, you get the true value, true value, true value,

You get a sample statistic, a sample r, or sample M,
You then take plus-or-minus two (it’s really 1.96…), standard errors beyond your stat,
And within this new interval, we can be, so confident,
That the true value, mu or rho, will be somewhere… inside…, our confidence interval,

Within your CI, you get the true value, true value, true value,
With 95%, you get the true value, true value, true value...
