Can't Stop Distributing Music Video

Hey everyone!  It's time for another math music video!  Some of my current and former students, and the faculty and staff at my school have been working hard to put this together for the end of the year. Here is "Can't Stop Distributing", lyrics are below:

Lyrics:

You got this problem inside your class
Let’s take a look, and break it down, don’t go to fast
All though my classroom, all through my school
We’re learning math, no limit, when we learn the rules
We’ve got to just break down this problem
Got to learn this pro-per-ty
You’ve got addition or subtraction, here we go
there’s an ex-pres-sion on the outside
(ya) Got those two pa-ren-the-ses
I know that you can do this problem, now you know

That you multiply, when things are real close
Each thing inside, is where the outside goes
To each term, you will draw an arr-ow
And Multiply in, Multiply in, Multiply in

Draw the lines and multiply, you just dis-tri-bute

Dis-tri-bute, come on
Product outside, Sum inside
You just dis-tri-bute, come on
Multiplying what’s inside, you dis-tri-bute (You just dis-tri-bute)

You just dis-tri-bute, (You just dis-tri-bute)
You just dis-tri-bute, come on

Oooh, here’s one more difficult
There’s much more there, two expressions look at it all
Now just don’t panic, don’t lose your cool
You’ll get it down, don’t worry, focus on the rules
We’ve got to just break down this problem
Got to learn this pro-per-ty
Two groups of adding or subtracting, here we go
Now there’s a left side and a right side,
Two sets of pa-ren-the-ses
I know that you can do this problem, now you know
That you multiply, when things are real close
Terms on the left, just distribute all those
From each term, draw a set of arr-ows
And Multiply in, Multiply in, Multiply in

Draw the lines and multiply, you just dis-tri-bute, yea
Dis-tri-bute, come on
Check to see if things combine
Once you dis-tri-bute, yea
Multiplying what’s inside, you dis-tri-bute (You just dis-tri-bute)
You just dis-tri-bute (You just dis-tri-bute)
You just dis-tri-bute (You just dis-tri-bute)
You just dis-tri-bute (You just dis-tri-bute)
You dis-tri-bute, come on

Distribute
Distribute
Distribute
Distribute

(You just distribute)
Draw the lines and multiply, you just dis-tri-bute, yea
dis-tri-bute
Check to see if things combine
Once you dis-tri-bute, yea
Multiplying what’s inside, you distribute

Everybody sing
Draw the arrows, multiply in (you just distribute)
Draw the arrows, multiply in (you just distribute)
Don’t forget about combining (once you distribute)

Draw the arrows, multiply in

Break it down

Draw the arrows, multiply in (You just distribute)

Don’t forget about combining, come on
