Dear party of the first part

It's time to draw the line

It's time to make the list and

Divide up the broken heart

Dear mother of my daughter

Dear father of my son

It's time to face the problem and

Find the proper dissolution

'Cause this is the New Math

This is the New Math

We didn't add up, so now we've got to decide

This is the New Math

This is the New Math

Still I think it's a shame how we multiply and divide

Dear children of our union

It's time to have the talk

This may get hard to follow

You'd better get some chalk

We'll put it on the blackboard

Husband minus wife

Sorry you had to learn so young

There's math in real life

'Cause this is the New Math

This is the New Math

We didn't add up, so now we've got to take sides

This is the New Math

This is the New Math

Still I think it's a shame how we multiply and divide

Don't worry

It'll be okay

Even though I won't see you every day

Mommy still loves you

Daddy still loves you

Instead of one home now you'll have two

Dear holder of my dreams

Do you recall our honeymoon?

I really meant forever but

Forever came too soon

It's easy to divide up two

There's 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

'Cause this is the New Math

This is the New Math

Any answer's all right if it's justified

This is the New Math

This is the New Math

Still I think it's a shame how we multiply and divide
