Verse 1

Once a young maths student looked for ways she could belong
Tracing the paths through a binary tree.
And she sighed as she worked, and waited for there to be more,
Who'll come and build a new network with me?

Verse 2

In came a post-doc, struggling also to belong,
"Will you help prove this conjecture with me?"
And she smiled as she tackled Theorem 1 and Lemma 3,
You'll come and build a new network with me.

Chorus

Build a new network, build a new network,
Who'll come and build a new network with me?
And who can write the code that validates our the-o-ry,
Please, come and build a new network with me.

Verse 3

Now the paper's written, who will read it, who will care?
"Not for this journal" said the referee.
"Don't give up", said another, "just redo Appendix B".
"You'll help to build a new network with me."

Chorus

Build a new network, build a new network,
You'll come and build a new network with me.
Don't give up, come and speak, let's bump it up to dimension 3,
You'll come and build a new network with me.

Verse 4

Now they're both professors, thinking maybe they belong,
Still juggling work and fa-mi-ly.
With respect and with love we fuel each other's confidence.
Who'll come and build a new network with me?

Chorus

Build a new network, build a new network,
You'll come and build a new network with me.
With respect and with love we fuel each other's confidence.
''Who'll come and build a new network with me?

Repeat final Chorus
