The Klein Four Group is an a
capella group from the maths department of Northwestern. Below a link to
one of their songs (grabbed from P.P. Cook’s Tangent Space
).

Finite
Simple Group (of order two)

A Klein Four original by
Matt Salomone

The path of love is never
smooth
But mine’s continuous for you
You’re the upper bound in the chains of my heart
You’re my Axiom of Choice, you know it’s true
But lately our relation’s not so well-defined
And
I just can’t function without you
I’ll prove my
proposition and I’m sure you’ll find
We’re a
finite simple group of order two
I’m losing my
identity
I’m getting tensor every day
And
without loss of generality
I will assume that you feel the same
way
Since every time I see you, you just quotient out
The faithful image that I map into
But when we’re
one-to-one you’ll see what I’m about
‘Cause
we’re a finite simple group of order two
Our equivalence
was stable,
A principal love bundle sitting deep inside
But then you drove a wedge between our two-forms
Now
everything is so complexified
When we first met, we simply
connected
My heart was open but too dense
Our system
was already directed
To have a finite limit, in some sense

I’m living in the kernel of a rank-one map
From my
domain, its image looks so blue,
‘Cause all I see are
zeroes, it’s a cruel trap
But we’re a finite simple
group of order two
I’m not the smoothest operator in my
class,
But we’re a mirror pair, me and you,
So
let’s apply forgetful functors to the past
And be a
finite simple group, a finite simple group,
Let’s be a
finite simple group of order two
(Oughter: “Why not
three?”)
I’ve proved my proposition now, as you
can see,
So let’s both be associative and free
And by corollary, this shows you and I to be
Purely
inseparable. Q. E. D.
