I am pentagon
Which side are you gonna be on?

Are you isoscecles?
Or is your angle 90 degrees?
Are you tetrahedron?
What plane are you resting on?

Your radial sides
Can't fit into the field of my eyes
I'm on a parallel plane
Can't decide if you're on the same

I am pentagon
Which side are you gonna be on?

You there, you're no square --
A love rectangle will size that flare
Polyhedron, immutable sides
We fit together on the left and the right

Circumference
Particular note
An ovular thing
With an angular coat
There's no place in this space
For a thing, yeah, of a particular shape

I am pentagon
Which side are you gonna be on?

I am pentagon
Which side are you gonna be on?

In a lateral space
I wanna fit inside of your shape
I'll be your parallelogram, yeah
Your withered waist, yeah I wanna be your man

I'll be your rhomboid
I'll be your trapezoid
I wanna be your trapped boy
Yeah, I'm on the square, yeah yeah yeah yeah
Please let me be there

I am pentagon
Which side are you gonna be on? (x4)

Ahhhh I'm pentagon

    Lyric Correctionthanks for putting those up - we now have a starting point to work with :-)

    my interpretation is as follows (verses 3 and 6):

    your radial sides
    can't fit into the field of my eyes
    i'm on a parallel plane
    can't decide if you're on the same

    circumference
    particular note
    an argyle (?) thing
    with an angular coat
    there's no place in this space
    for a thing yeah of a particular shape



    who would have thought geometry can be so darned sexy?!

    My InterpretationThe song has a very simple meaning that one can seefrom the following lines

    are you isosceles?
    or is your angle 90 degrees?

    i am pentagon
    which side are you gonna be on?

    either you're no square --
    a love rectangle will size that flare

    These lines hold an awkward attempt at relating shapes to people. The first lines hold true to the theme, but the second line is always tainted with a lazy rhyme that was clearly written after looking inside a rhyming dictionary for further "inspiration".

    In conclusion, the "theme" of this song is trivial and deserves no place in any intelligent persons' mind.
