about

Our modern world couldn't function without the binary number system. But how does it work? How can you count to 47 using only 0's and 1's? Why can't they just use our regular base 10 number system? These are all good questions that this song does not answer.

lyrics

There's only two number in binary
Just like red and white wine at a winery
An example is here, to make it all clear:

A three looks like an 11 and 111 is seven
There's no other numbers, 'cept for zeroes and ones
Zeroes and ones, zeroes and ones

If you don't understand binary
Then you can't work at an oil refinery
I'm only kidding that's just a joke
But if you work there you better not smoke

Computers use it to talk to each other
Just don't use it to talk to your mother
She won't understand, neither will I
You don't need binary to make a pie

But you can still make pi in binary
We looked it up on the internet
Some say it’s morally inappropriate
It goes: 11.0010010000111111 etc.
It goes on like that for really long
We’ll have to tell you more about it in another song

A three looks like an 11 and a two looks like a ten.
There's no other numbers 'cept for zeroes and ones
Zeroes and ones, zeroes and ones
Zeroes and ones, zeroes and ones
Zeroes and ones, zeroes and ones
Zeroes and ones, zeroes and ones
Zeroes and ones, zeroes and ones
