But Who's Counting?

Get Flash to see this player.

Silly song, thinking about numbers and measuring and math. What the heck genre is this now? Had fun with it, anyhow.

David McCord But Who’s Counting?

One two three four five six seven eight nine ten
Un deux trois quatre cinq six sept huit neuf dix
Eine zwei drei vier fünf sechs sieben acht neun tzen
Uno dos tres cuatro cinco seis siete ocho nueve diez

Unless there are two, there cannot be one
Once three gets it going - the end has begun
The cycle is started, the fabric is spun,
The basics of being cannot be undone
But who’s counting? Who’s counting?

For the winnings and losses, the pains and the gains,
We tally the pennies, the ounces and grains.
And total the totals and sum up the sums
And figure the figures until doomsday comes.
But who’s counting? Who’s counting?

The few and the many, the large and the small
Are nothing but numbers. Who’s counting them all?
It’s all out of hand, the totals are mounting,
The numbers go on, and that’s good, but who’s counting?

Proofs and axioms, theories and such,
Functions and formulas, it’s all too much
And don’t get me started on infinity
Imagin’ry numbers are all greek to me!
But who’s counting? Who’s counting?

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
