Based on a German song by Stephen Janetzko, called "Eine Eins ging mal spazieren".
A "one" went on a walk. She didn't want to be alone, so she invited another "one" to play. And they were two. They wanted to have children, so they became three, then four. The family became even bigger: it now consisted of four people (father, mother, daughter, son) and four pets (a dog, a cat, a mouse and a hamster). When the children grew up, they left the family house, so they were six. Also the animals left, so they were two again. The "two" died and the "one" was again alone - until her time arrived too, so there was "zero" left.
