Stupid with love lyrics Nell Benjamin

When I was five, I fell in love
It didn’t last
He ran from me
Literally, ran from me
And being Kenyan, He ran fast
When I was ten, in love, again
This peace corps guy
I waited for hours
Inside his tent with flowers
Which made him laugh which made me cry
By thirteen I gave up trying
I decided I would be a mathematician
‘Cause math is real
I memorized a lot of PI
Because additions and subtractions and division
Would never make me feel
So stupid with love
Like I didn’t get it
I didn’t get it, somehow
Smart with math but stupid with love
I didn’t get it
I didn’t get it, ’till now
Do you have an eraser? (I would love to)
So thank you, math, for being there
To bring me joy
And thank you, math
‘Cause now brought me this cute boy!
Is it two? (yes)
He’s like someone from T.V
He’s like that guy who give out roses to those women
His clothes, his grooming
And he’s foot away from me with swoopy hair and shiny eyes that I could swim in
He is live and in the room!
And I’m stupid with love
I wanna get it
I wanna to get it, but how?
Smart with math, but stupid with love
I wanna get it
I didn’t get it till now
Two over zero is undefined
Jinx (ha!)
I’m astounded and non-plussed
I am filled with calculust
Does this guy work out? He must
All sweaty at the gym
Could that image be more hot?
Let me just enjoy that thought
School was rough but now? It’s not
‘Cause now there’s him
It’s all so simple
Stupid with love
But I can get it
Watch this girl self-educate
I learned math, so I can learn love
You wanna bet it?
That I can get it?
Just wait
Just wait
Just wait!
