We are here to praise together:
Classification, Data Analysis,
With this song to show their strengths
Classification, Data Analysis,
Support progress mathematicílly,
mathematicílly.
We have learned classes are fuzzy,
and regression is outdated,
So, we are modern now
applying Artíficial Neural Nets
And Support Vector Machines.

Replace trees by random forests,
do not use the good old errír rates
but turn over to ideal features.
Be as modern as you can,
Be as modern as you can,
And invent clever involved theories
Just forget interpretation
and be optimal instead.

We are here to praise together:
Classification, Data Analysis,
With this song to show their strengths
Classification, Data Analysis,
Support progress mathematicílly,
mathematicílly.
We apply our newest methods
to all fields of science now,
econometrics, biometrics,
even music, linguistics,
and archaeology.

Let us link these different fields
To make clear our ubiquity
And our indispensability.
So, remember all the time,
That our methods have to applied,
Thus, take care of practical tools.
And prepare interpretation,
Be as simple as you can.
