Multiplication

 


 

 

      When you see a gentleman bee
      Round a lady bee buzzin'
      Just count to ten then count again
      There's sure to be an even dozen.
     
      Multiplication
      That's the name of the game
      And each generation
      They play the same.
     
      Now, there was two butterflies castin' their eyes
      Both in the same direction
      You'd never guess that one little yes
      Could start a butterfly collection.
     
      Multiplication
      That's the name of the game
      And each generation
      They play the same.
     
      Let me tell ya now …
     
      I say one and one is five
      You can call me a silly goat
      But, ya take two minks add two winks
      Ahhh … ya got one mink coat.
     
      When a girl gets coy in front of a boy
      After three or four dances
      Ah … you can just bet she'll play hard to get
      To multiply her chances.
     
      Multiplication
      That's the name of the game
      And each generation
      You know they play the same.
     
      Hear me talkin' to ya …
     
      Mother Nature's a clever girl
      She relies on habit
      Ya take two hares with no cares
      Pretty soon you got a room full of rabbits.
     
      Parakeets in-between tweets
      Sometimes get too quiet
      Uh-oh … but, have no fear 'cause soon you'll hear
      A parakeet's riot just try it.
     
      Multiplication
      That's the name of the game
      And every generation
      You know they play the same.
     
      Yes ... it's multiplication
      That's the name of the game
      And each generation
      They play the same.
