There's a ballad in there somewhere. With a Latin beat, of course.
"When my child was young, she did, I confess/
Watch nothing much more than PBS/
But then time went by, and I packed up my tuba/
And moved the whole family to glorious Cuba/
But she continued to thrive, and come the dawn/
She'll be competing in maths in March in San Juan!
March in San Juan! Oh, that march to San Juan. Oh, such glories could come, if the beans aren't overdone.
March to San Juan! Ay, mis hijos I love! She'll be doing equations, with salsa on her glove.
