Archibald: Here we go!

I am the very model of a modern Major-General

I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral

I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical

From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical

I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical

About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news

Lot of news, let's see...

With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse

Chorus: With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse (3x)

Archibald: Alright, hang on! I'm very good at integral and differential calculus

I know the scientific names of beings animalculous

In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral

I am the very model of a modern Major-General

Chorus: With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse (3x)

Archibald: I'm very good at integral and differential calculus

I am the very model of a modern Major-General

Chorus: In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
