We know that one times one is one,

but an unicorn times a pear

have no idea what it is.

We know that five minus four is one

but a cloud minus a sailboat

have no idea what it is.

We know that eight

divided by eight is one,

but a mountain divided by a goat

have no idea what it is.

We know that one plus one is two,

but me and you, oh,

we have no idea what it is.

Oh, but a comforter

times a rabbit

is a red-headed one of course,

a cabbage divided by a flag

is a pig,

a horse minus a street-car

is an angel,

a cauliflower plus an egg

is an astragalus.

Only you and me

multiplied and divided

added and subtracted

remain the same...

Vanish from my mind!

Come back in my heart!
