Use a t

Lyric copyright by Jeff Witmer
may sing to tune of "Let it Be" (Paul McCartney/Beatles)

When I find myself with normal data,
William Gosset comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, Use a t.

If my NP plot is linear
but sigma isn't known to me
This is not a problem, Use a t.

Use a t, use a t, use a t, use a t
Student knows the answer: Use a t.

And when the broken hearted students
in a stats class can't agree
You can show the answer: Use a t.

Some want to use a Z test,
and a chi-square is a mystery
The truth is very simple: Use a t

Use a t, use a t, use a t, use a t
Student knows the answer: Use a t.

And when your thoughts are cloudy,
RA Fisher may not hear your plea
But Gosset will deliver, with a t.

He knows you are trying
and he wants to set your mind at ease
Don't think twice about it, use a t.

Use a t, use a t, use a t, use a t
Student knows the answer: Use a t.
