New Math

Dear party of the first part
Itís time to draw the line
Itís time to make the list and
Divide up the broken heart
Dear mother of my daughter
Dear father of my son
Itís time to face the problem and
Find the proper dissolution

 ĎCause this is the New Math
This is the New Math
We didnít add up, so now weíve got to decide
This is the New Math
This is the New Math
Still I think itís a shame how we multiply and divide

Dear children of our union
Itís time to have the talk
This may get  hard to follow
Youíd better get some chalk
Weíll put it on the blackboard
Husband minus wife
Sorry you had to learn so young
Thereís math in real life

ĎCause this is the New Math
This is the New Math
We didnít add up, so now weíve got to take sides
This is the New Math
This is the New Math
Still I think itís a shame how we multiply and divide

Donít worry
Itíll be okay
Even though I wonít see you every day
Mommy still loves you
Daddy still loves you
Instead of one home now youíll have two

Dear holder of my dreams
Do you recall our honeymoon?
I really meant forever but
Forever came too soon
Itís easy to divide up two
Thereís nothing to explain
We end up back with me and you
Equal shares of pain
But when you divide a family
Something still remains
It never comes out even
Something still remains

ĎCause this is the New Math
This is the New Math
Any answerís all right if itís justified
This is the New Math
This is the New Math
Still I think itís a shame how we multiply and divide
