Six degrees of separation

and twenty-four hours of pain

while he’s ordering another round

he sleeps with a bar-fly

but cannot recall her name.

  
  

Six degrees of separation

and twenty-four hours of pain

because this is how Noah felt

when he couldn’t stop the rain;

the deluge was too great

  
  

Six degrees of separation

And twenty-four hours of pain

because she can’t admit to herself

that she’s worth much more than this

and he should be out of the game.

  
  

Six degrees of separation

And twenty-four hours of pain

For the very last time tonight

She will cry for what might have been

knowing he’s already forgotten her name.

 

Six degrees of separation

And twenty-four hours of pain

because she’s out there living the dream

And celebrating a better man who

treats her better than what’s his name.

The theory and results:
http://www.livescience.com/32340-six-degrees-of-separation-fact-or-fiction.html

In the first large-scale test of the six degrees hypothesis, called the Small World project, scientists from Columbia University in New York had participants send e-mails to acquaintances with the goal of eventually reaching one of the listed targets. Results, published in 2003 in the journal Science, showed the targets were reachable in five to seven steps. However, many of the chains terminated prematurely, which the scientists attribute to lack of incentive by individuals to reach a target.
