Dance of the Pythagoreans
(Determining the Hypotenuse)
Harry Guffee


This song is available on Harry Guffee's Got Math?

This upbeat epic ballad recounts the story of how Pythagoras, the ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician, may have discovered what is known throughout the world as the Pythagorean theorem.

Pythagoras said, "I wonder
How far would it be
To go from here to yonder
Without walking around that tree?"
The square of the hypotenuse
Is equal to the sum
Of the squares of the other two sides
Of the triangle

Chorus:
a squared plus b squared is c squared
a squared plus b squared is c squared
a squared plus b squared is c squared
          
Pythagoras said, "I wonder
How far would it be
To go from here to yonder
Without swimming across that sea?"
The square of the hypotenuse
Is equal to the sum
Of the squares of the other two sides
Of the triangle

Chorus
