Composer Rob Fokkens, text by Rob Fokkens
I love numbers.
I love one hundred.
I love fifty-two,
I love forty-eight,
And seventeen point four million,
Although I prefer sixteen point one million,
Despite it feeling strangely insignificant.
Numbers is a short song addressing some numbers with which we have all become rather over-familiar recently – I do still love numbers, despite this, and these are not inherently bad ones. The text is by the composer.
