    "The Derivative Song", by Tom Lehrer
    "The Derivative Song", by Tom Lehrer: "The Derivative Song:
    You take a function of x and you call it y,
    Take any x0 that you care to try,
    Make a little change and call it delta-x,
    The corresponding change in y is what you find nex',
    And then you take the quotient, and now carefully
    Send delta-x to zero and I think you'll see,
    That what the limit gives us, if our work all checks,
    Is what we call dy/dx, it's just dy/dx."
