God rest ye merry, physicists

Let nothing you dismay.

Remember Isaac Newton

was born on Christmas Day!

His gravity and calculus and "f" equals "m" "a"!

Oh, pillars of physics and math, physics and math,

Oh, pillars of physics and math!

A factor of big G - the same

for flea and giant star.

Then multiply the masses

and divide by square of "r".

The force that keeps us on the earth

and orbits moons afar!

Oh, pillars of physics and math, physics and math,

Oh, pillars of physics and math!

Now, calculus is math for those

who change things bit by bit.*

To figure out derivatives

and get the curve to fit.

Then integrate and you can find the area under it!

Oh, pillars of physics and math, physics and math,

Oh, pillars of physics and math!

**little bits, not computer data bits*

[Yes, Newton was something of a religious nut, but nonetheless significantly advanced humankind's understanding of our universe.]
