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.
