(Ooooh.  Count up, count up, count up.)

[KARD:] (Woo hoo.)
I, can’t choose given infinite replenishment
One item I’ve taken, in a bin it is present,
But then that option we can still pick, total restart,
I’m stayin’ with all A’s, for my password, (that’s) not smart. (Yeah!)

Now pipe down, if the item disappears,
Then multiply, factorials,
Descending numbers here, but I can’t miss the ranks,
Since there’s order to use,
So when we work it out (see) I can’t choose.
(Woo, woo)


[JRDN:]
At a meet yesterday, saw them start to play,
and I said, “Nice lineup there.

“Do you know how many ways that
there’s a roster for this game
for your team, using due care?

Because I mean, positions we see here are clear,
I know: “The labels will create order, so now we won’t divide by what you take.”
I’m no fool.

{CHORUS:}
(Fac-Tor-I-Al.)
You divide who’s left out, that’s the law, that’s the law.
I’ll exclaim,
(Fac-Tor-I-Al.)
“I’m going to divide, and I did take some, ordering them all...”
I can’t choose (can’t choose, can’t choose, can’t choose)
Oh, I permute (permute, permute, permute)
All these things selected
But ranking’s not neglected
So I can’t choose (can’t choose, can’t choose, can’t choose)
Tell you what, we’ll permute.

Bought some fruit last week, and I got a critique.
Said, “In listin’ these all, well, can I count the ways with my technique?”
And I was told, “These three repeat, orange was used again.”
But I said, “Great, so if ordering stays, we divide by six then.”
I’m no fool.

{CHORUS:}
(Fac-Tor-I-Al.)
You divide copies out, that’s the law, that’s the law.
I’ll exclaim,
(Fac-Tor-I-Al.)
“I’m going to divide, and I did take some, ordering them all...”
I can’t choose (can’t choose, can’t choose, can’t choose)
Oh, I permute (permute, permute, permute)
All these things selected
But ranking’s not neglected
So I can’t choose (can’t choose, can’t choose, can’t choose)

It’s a permutation! (Count up, count up, count up)
Permutation! (Count up, count up, count up)
All these things selected
But ranking’s not neglected
So I can’t choose (can’t choose, can’t choose, can’t choose)
Tell you what, we’ll permute.

[KARD:] (Yeah)
Don’t know what to do
Thought I had a P not a C, but instead I’m here pickin’ randomly.
Yo, I’ll always take this and that, who cares what came last,
Yeah, it could’ve been first, that’s how I choose fast.
Now I divide two times, both numbers match my all (Ha!)
But remember there’s no bins here, close call. (Yep)
So I gotta use my head and bring some hope that I won’t arrange everything.

{CHORUS:}
I can’t choose (can’t choose, can’t choose, can’t choose)
Oh, I permute (permute, permute, permute)
All these things selected
But ranking’s not neglected
So I can’t choose (can’t choose, can’t choose, can’t choose)

It’s a permutation!
(Count up, count up, count up)
Permutation!
(Count up, count up, count up)
All these things selected
But ranking’s not neglected
So I can’t choose (can’t choose, can’t choose, can’t choose)
Tell you what, we’ll permute.
