What proof is he doing on the board today?
All I know is I don't understand.
I can't read his writing, but what can I say?
I'm much too timid and I'll never raise my hand.

x-y-z, theta-pi, class goes on, brah!
La-la-la-la, class goes on

In a couple of years they have built a theory, nice theory
with a couple of kids running in the back
the grad students doing the work.

Happy is the master that we call the prof.
Long live my superior advisor
I can't understand him, but I do my job
I'm much too timid and I'll never say a word

x-y-z, theta-pi grad school rocks, brah!
La-la-la-la, grad school rocks!

And if you want some fun, take x-y-z-mu-pi
