Black Boxes (Nick Krukovsky) Black boxes on the prelim Black boxes nice and linear Black boxes, black boxes Black boxes all the same There's an active one and a passive one And a simple one and a hairy one And they're all made of ideal elements And they all fake you out the same And the ideal elements Were made at the university Where they all got put in boxes Black boxes all the same To make servos and counters And other electronic elements But they all have stray reactance So they fake you out the same And their fields have no fringing And reactance has no losses And the parts are nicely lumped In the boxes all the same And no matter what the input You should always know the output Of the boxes, black boxes But they all fake you out the same And the boxes go into radios And lasers and computers Into still bigger boxes Black boxes all the same And professors and authors And engineers by the thousands Build more boxes, black boxes And they all fake you out the same SOF
