# Finite Simple Group (of Order Two): A Mathematical Love Song by the Klein Four Group.

 The Klein Four Group is a very talented a cappella group "of the world of higher mathematics" of the Northwestern University mathematics department, composed of Clark Alexander, Scott Bailey, Mike Johnson, Kal Nanes, and Matt Salomone. Their viral single, a mathematical love song called Finite Simple Group (of Order Two), is funny and clever in an endearingly nerdy way.The lyrics for Finite Simple Group (of Order Two):The path of love is never smoothBut mine's continuous for youYou're the upper bound in the chains of my heartYou're my Axiom of Choice, you know it's trueBut lately our relation's not so well-definedAnd I just can't function without youI'll prove my proposition and I'm sure you'll findWe're a finite simple group of order twoI'm losing my identityI'm getting tensor every dayAnd without loss of generalityI will assume that you feel the same waySince every time I see you, you just quotient outThe faithful image that I map intoBut when we're one-to-one you'll see what I'm about'Cause we're a finite simple group of order twoOur equivalence was stable,A principal love bundle sitting deep insideBut then you drove a wedge between our two-formsNow everything is so complexifiedWhen we first met, we simply connectedMy heart was open but too denseOur system was already directedTo have a finite limit, in some senseI'm living in the kernel of a rank-one mapFrom my domain, its image looks so blue,'Cause all I see are zeroes, it's a cruel trapBut we're a finite simple group of order twoI'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 pastAnd 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 freeAnd by corollary, this shows you and I to bePurely inseparable.
