### I will derive!

Mathematicians are known to be good musicians. Here is a mathematical parody of the Gloria Gaynor song, "I will survive". I particularly like the lyrics:

*And so now I, I will derive.
Find the derivative of x position with respect to time.
It's as easy as can be, just have to take dx/dt.
I will derive, I will derive, I will derive!*
