Duration: 4:34

LYRICS:

I’m walking down,
Times Table-street,
Looking for a bite to eat,
Singing this silly song,
When I stepped,
On something wrong…
A little, little, little guy,
With a twinkle in his eye,
Jumped and laughed,
And said,
Help me giant, giant man,
I know you might not understand,
But the planet,
Where I’m from,
Needs 7 x 8 bites of bubble gum...
I don’t need the difference,
I don’t need the sum,
I need 7 x 8,
Pieces of gum...
What’s 7 x 8 my friend?
My people need to know!
Tell me 7 x 8 my friend?
Hurry, I gotta’ go…
This was strange,
But I was able,
Knew that fact,
That times table,
Seemed a good guy,
On a short limb,
This is what,
I said to him...
I’m not sure,
How I know,
But I think,
This is how it goes,
7 x 8 = 56,
Cause I know this little trick,
Numbers line up,
In a row,
Numbers line up,
Ain’t it great,
5-6-7-8,
56, just 7 x 8...
Thank you,
Thank you,
Thank you man,
I say you saved the day,
56 bites of bubble gum,
And I’ll be on my way!
Thank you for that,
Little trick,
For 8 x 7 now,
Say it to me one more time,
So I remember how…
So I said that fact again,
It went a bit like this,
Said that product one more time,
So he’d never miss,
I’m not sure,
How I know,
But I think,
This is how it goes,
7 x 8 = 56
Cause I know this little trick,
Numbers line up,
In a row,
Numbers line up,
Ain’t it great,
5-6-7-8,
56, just 7 x 8...
The little man,
Bought his gum,
At the corner store,
Handed me 4 pieces,
He had 60-4,
Whenever you wanna’
Come and see us,
We’re high up in the sky,
To the left,
Of mercury,
And past the planet pi…
He took off,
Like a bolt of lightening,
On his rocket ship,
Something that I’ve never seen,
Was it all just a dream?
I had to get a grip...
All I know,
Is what I know,
And this is what I say…
8 x 7’s 56
Each and every day!
I’m not sure,
How I know,
But I think,
This is how it goes,
7 x 8 is 56,
Cause I know this little trick,
Numbers line up,
In a row,
Numbers line up,
Ain’t it great,
5-6-7-8,
56, just 7 x 8...

Hope you enjoy- Mr. R.
