My hero, zero, you're such a funny little

Hero but till you came along, we counted

On our fingers and toes! Now you're here

To stay and nobody really knows how

Wonderful you are, how you could never

Reach a star, without you zero, my hero,

How wonderful you are, how wonderful

You are!

You place a zero after one, and you've got

Yourself a ten - see how easy that is, when

You run out of digits you can start all over

Again - see how simple that is!

That's why with only ten digits, including

Zero, you can count as high as you could

Ever go, forever, towards infinity - noone

Ever gets there, but you could try!

With ten billions zeros, from the cavemen

(*see a brief note to the general public)

Who invented you, they counted on their

Fingers and toes (and maybe some sticks

And stones, rocks & bones, neighbors

Toes) oh yeah, nobody really knows how

Wonderful you are, how you could never

Reach a star, without you zero, my hero,

How wonderful you are, how wonderful

You are!

You place a zero after any number and

You've multiplied that number by ten - see

How convenient that is, you place two

Zeros after any number and you've

Multiplied that number by one hundred -

See how important that is etc, etc, ad

Infinitum, ad astra, forever & ever, with

Zero, my hero, how wonderful you are
