The Lyrics

John Venn invented the Venn Diagram around 1860, the intersecting circles that show the relationship of sets of objects, numbers, etc. (and an extra line from The Lion King)
The Ballad of John Venn by Jeff “Dr Chordate” Moran

Chorus:
All his life was circles, intersecting sets.
Like upper case glyphs shared by Greek and Latin alphabets.
All his life was circles that can tell you why
We know the set of creatures with two legs and those that fly.

His parents intersected and produced John Venn.
He had a funny feeling that circles he would yen.
No straight lines made up his life. Circle without ends
Showing how sets intersect except when they don’t blend.

He made a thousand diagrams. You’ve pro’bly done the same.
Colors, numbers, animals, boys and girls names.
All are just big circles intersecting again.
Thanks to the diagrams invented by John Venn.

Chorus:
All his life was circles, intersecting sets.
Like upper case glyphs shared by Greek and Latin alphabets.
All his life was circles that can tell you why
Members of the set of creatures with two legs and those that fly.

(It’s the circle of life . . . )
