We three things are math superstars,
Look like lines or maybe we're bars.
Math notation, brings salvation,
We're your straight avatars.

[chorus:]
Oooh, overline or vinculum,
Fraction bar at minimum,
Absolutely, valued truly,
Guides in math curriculum.

One symbol is all I can claim,
Overline or macron's my name.
Complement or mean event or
Conjugate are my game.

[chorus:]
Oooh, overline or vinculum,
Fraction bar at minimum,
Absolutely, valued truly,
Guides in math curriculum.

Vinculum appears everywhere,
Line segments and roots need my care.
Long division, or precision,
Don't round off, repeat there.

[chorus:]
Oooh, overline or vinculum,
Fraction bar at minimum,
Absolutely, valued truly,
Guides in math curriculum.

Fraction bar's in vinculum's class,
Group my top, then bottom en masse.
The obelus, tries to tell us,
Dividing happens last.

[chorus:]
Oooh, overline or vinculum,
Fraction bar at minimum,
Absolutely, valued truly,
Guides in math curriculum.

Absolute value bars exist.
Vertical, so not on this list.
Learn of more things, learn of math things,
Symbols others have missed.

[chorus:]
Oooh, overline or vinculum,
Fraction bar at minimum,
Absolutely, valued truly,
Guides in math curriculum.
