LYRICS

Put sixteen ounces on a scale;

It’ll weigh one pound without fail.

Pick up sixteen ounces off the ground,

And you just lifted one pound.

And if a ball weighs sixteen ounces,

A pound hits the ground every time it bounces.

If you weighed two thousand pounds, you couldn’t run,

‘cause if you weighed that much you would be one ton!

But if you found treasure, it would be real fun,

If all that gold weighed up to one ton,

‘cause all that would make mounds and mounds,

As a ton is equal to two thousand pounds!

I looked up how many ounces were in a pound,

and sixteen ounces is what I found.

Then I stacked up pounds until they weighed a ton,

And it took two thousand until I was done.

Lots of things weigh about an ounce,

Like four quarters or a friendly mouse.

Lots of things weigh about a pound,

Like this bottle of soda that my teacher found.

Lots of things weigh about a ton,

Like a small car driven by a really hip nun!

I looked up how many ounces were in a pound,

And sixteen ounces is what I found.

Then I stacked up pounds until they weighed a ton,

And it took two thousand until I was done.
