All around the mulberry bush,
The monkey chased the weasel.
The monkey thought 'twas all in fun.
Pop! goes the weasel.

The Quadratic Formula Song
sung by Michael Kelley

Quote:  "The catchy tune that helps you remember the quadratic formula with that rip-roaring feel good chorus: "Over 2A! Over 2A! Over 2A!". And what's a good math song without a grisly murder?"
