INTRO:
  G     D    Em
A long, long time ago
Am              C              Em             D
Long before the Super Bowl and things like lemonade
       G       D          Em
The Hellenic Republic was full of smarts
      Am                      C
And a question resting on the Grecian hearts
     Em            C               D
Was "What is the circumference of a circle?"
    Em              Am
But they were set on rational numbers
       Em               Am
And it ranks among their biggest blunders
     C         G      Am
They worked on it for years
       C                   D
And confirmed one of their biggest fears
  G        D       Em                  Am7             D
I can't be certain if they cried when irrationality was realized
    G         D        Em
But something deep within them died
    C           D7       G    C   G
the day they discovered pi.
          D
They were thinking

CHORUS:
G   C        G       D
Pi, pi, mathematical pi
G       C  G  D
3 point 14 15 92
G  C  G  D
65 35 89 7
Em    A7
932384 62
Em     D7
6433832 7 (not rounded)

VERSE:
     G                   Am
Well this kind of pie is different than most
   C                         Am
It hasn't got berries, ain't spread on toast
Em                 D
And that's how it's always been
   G      D           Em
We keep extending its decimal places
Am                    C
Pushing our computers through their paces
Em             D
But we'll never reach the end

   Em          Am
So why the fascination with
  Em                 Am
A number whose end is just a myth
C          G  A7
Whence the adulation
C                 D7
For mental masturbation
   G          D            Em
It might have something to do with the stars
   Am                  C
To calculate distances from afar
    G             D               Em
But that's just a guess 'bout the way things are
  C              D7        G   C   G
Regarding the precision of pi
     D7
I am pondering

CHORUS:
G   C        G       D
Pi, pi, mathematical pi
G       C  G  D
3 point 14 15 92
G  C  G  D
65 35 89 7
Em    A7
932384 62
Em     D7
6433832 7 (not rounded)

VERSE:
G               Am
Now I feel that I should mention
C                   Am
Pi is applicable in any dimension
Em         D
At least as far as I know
   G             D          Em
If there were no Pi we'd be missing things
     Am                   C
Like marbles and mugs and balls of string
    Em            A7         D7
And sports such as soccer and curling
    Em                Am
The orbs in their celestial paths
 Em             Am
Navigate along elliptical graphs
C             G          A7
Ellipses have pi in them too
      C                   D7
Just one side of them has grew
G           D           Em
You can see pi in most everything
        Am                 C
It's in Cornell's Electron Storage Ring
    G       D            Em
And also in slinkies and other springs
           C          D7              G   C   G
And that's why it's important to know pi
            D
You should memorize

CHORUS:
G   C        G       D
Pi, pi, mathematical pi
G       C  G  D
3 point 14 15 92
G  C  G  D
65 35 89 7
Em    A7
932384 62
Em     D7
6433832 7 (not rounded)

OUTRO:
G                Am
Once one night I had a dream
     C                 Am
That pi was gone and I had to scream
      Em               D
Cause all pi things had disappeared  (pause)
G           D           Em
Can you imagine a world like that
Am                       C
Circles aren't round and spheres are flat
         Em            A7               D7
It's the culmination of everything we've feared
Em                  Am
'Twas a nightmare of epic proportions
Em              Am
One that gave me brain contortions
   C        G       A7
Oh wait!  I mean contusions
     C              D7
They put me in some institutions
    G      D          Em
But then I escaped and now I'm free
   C           D         G    C   G   D
To sing of the virtue of pi

CHORUS:
G   C        G       D
Pi, pi, mathematical pi
G       C  G  D
3 point 14 15 92
G  C  G  D
65 35 89 7
Em    A7
932384 62
Em     D7
6433832 7 (not rounded)
