You must have met a friend of mine called Algie That's his name He dines out at the Carlton all the week He's an awfully clever scholar He's beautiful at science And his algebra is simply magnifique
Of course, he don't know much about the world and girls and all But his mathematics nobody can beat If you want to know how much you owe He'll tell you like a shot He's a simply useful sort of chap to meet
And if he meets that lady, He calculates just what she'd like to be He adds on several winters plus a summer and a spring And multiplies the blooming lot by three
Cause Algie's simply awfully good at algebra!
He's really awfully smart He knows everything by heart You'll ask him out to dinner, if you'll just take my advice It's then his power for seeing things becomes awfully nice
