One Is Like A Copy Machine  music sample  © 2006 Smart Kid Publishing, ASCAP
To multiply by one is such an interesting thing
It's a little like using a copy machine
You'll get back a picture of what you put in
It mirrors the image of most anything
So let's multiply by one
And you'll see what I mean
(When you multiply a number by one, the answer is that number)
One times one equals one, you see
And two times one equals two, no more!
Three times one equals three I'll bet you know
Four times one will equal four
Five times one equals five every time
And six times one equals six
Seven times one equals seven, and wait!
Eight times one equals eight
(When you multiply by one, your answer does not get bigger or smaller; the number remains the same)
Nine times one will equal nine
Always the same thing every time
And don't you know ten times one equals ten
I'm sure now that you see the trend
To multiply by one is such an interesting thing
It's a little like using a copy machine
You'll get back a picture of what you put in
It mirrors the image of most anything
So unless you're really dumb
You can now multiply by one

PBJ, Three Times A Day  music sample  © 2006 Smart Kid Publishing, ASCAP
Pamela Bamela Jamela
Was born with a perfect name
Because she loved peanut butter (and jelly)
We all called her PB and J
She wanted to set a record
For the fun of it and the fame
So all she was going to eat every day
Was goobery PB and J
Momma wants to know what you want for breakfast
P,B and J!
Momma wants to know what you want for lunch
P,B and J!
Momma wants to know what you want for dinner
P,B and J!
Momma wants to know what you're gonna eat all week
P,B and J, three times a day
On the first day of eating 3 P, B and J's
Three sticky sandwiches on her way
That's 1x3=3, 1x3=3
On the second day of eating 3 P, B and J's
Too excited to go out and play
2x3=6, 2x3=6
On the third day of eating 3 P, B and J's
Her big, ugly brother said "no way!"
3x3=9, 3x3=9
On the fourth day of eating 3 P, B and J's
All of her friends said "Hooray!"
4x3=12, 4x3=12
On the fifth day of eating 3 P, B and J's
Sitting in her Daddy's Chevrolet
5x3=15, 5x3=15
She ate 3,6,9,12,15
P,B and J, three times a day!
She ate 3,6,9,12,15
P,B and J, three times a day!
She's a peanut butter eating machine
On the sixth day of eating 3 P, B and J's
Too stuffed to go out and play
6x3=18, 6x3=18
On the seventh day of eating 3 P, B and J's
The old jar of jelly turned gray
7x3=21, 7x3=21
On the eighth day she ate them with jelly on the bottom
She almost had to stop since they tasted so rotten
8x3=24, 8x3=24
On the ninth day of eating 3 P, B and J's
No drop of jelly in the way
9x3=27, 9x3=27
On the tenth day of eating 3 P, B and J's
She got sick
Pamela Bamela Jamela
10 days of just P, B and J
She made it to thirty
And then the floor got a little dirty
Her record still stands today
She ate 3,6,9 and 12
15,18 then 21
24, 27, 30
That's all and then she was done
She ate 3,6,9 and 12
15,18 then 21 (How fun!)
24, 27, 30
That's all and then she was done
She ate 3,6,9 and 12
15,18 then 21 (How fun!)
24, 27, 30
That's all and then she was done

Five Holes In My Head  music sample  © 2006 Smart Kid Publishing, ASCAP
I like the number five
It reminds me of the holes in my head
When I've got to multiply
I think about the holes in my head
(Two ears, two nostrils and one mouth equals five holes)
Since I've got one head
And it just has five
Holes that help me figure out
How to multiply by five
(1 times 5 is 5, 1 times 5 is 5)
I've got a best friend named Ed
He's got 5 holes in his head
Whenever the two of us get together
There are 10 holes in 2 heads
(2 times 5 is ten, 2 times 5 is ten)
I've got a brother named Fred
With 5 holes in his head
When me and Ed and Fred get together
There are 15 holes in 3 heads
(3 times 5 is fifteen, 3 times 5 is fifteen)
(This is easier than I thought; I'm ready to learn more)
I've got a buddy named Jed
He's got 5 holes in his head
When we're all just hanging out counting holes
There are 20 holes in 4 heads
(4 times 5 is 20, 4 times 5 is 20)
It's fun to count holes in the head
So we called up a guy named Red
When he stands in our line, five at a time
We've got 25 holes in 5 heads
(5 times 5 is 25, 5 times 5 is 25)
My daddy's name is Ted
We have the same looking head
When he joins our little party and he isn't tardy
We've got 30 holes in 6 heads
(6 times 5 is 30, 6 times 5 is 30)
(I'm very comfortable with this concept; Please tell me more)
The dreadlocks on his head
Covered up the 5 holes of Ned
But we know he's got them and when they're all counted
35 holes in 7 heads
(7 times 5 is 35, 7 times 5 is 35)
Don't believe everything you've read
Aunty Mildred said
The eight of us all agreed
So we've got 40 holes in 8 heads
(8 times 5 is 40, 8 times 5 is 40)
Hey, everyone, it's Winstead
Let's play baseball instead
If you count the holes on our starting 9
You've got 45 holes in 9 heads
(9 times 5 is 45, 9 times 5 is 45)
Our coach's name is Grover
We had to get him out of bed
We needed someone in charge of multiplying
All the holes in 10 heads
(10 times 5 is 50, 10 times 5 is 50)
When you multiply by five
The answers that you get
Will end in fives or tens
5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45
We get it!
Now it's time for you to try to multiply
Don't be shy with five, my friends
5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45
50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, etc, fade

Six Skinny Bug Legs  music sample  © 2006 Smart Kid Publishing, ASCAP
Six legs, six legs, skinny little bug legs
Wiggling on every bug
Six legs, six legs, skinny little bug legs
Are what keeps a bug on the run
With one little bug it is easy to see
That when you've got six legs, you've got six feet
So if you count up the legs on one bug you'll get 6
Since 1x6=6
One little bug has 6 skinny legs
1x6=6
When two bugs first meet they like to stare
At the number of legs that they share
If you count up the legs on two bugs you'll get 12
Since 2x6=12
Two little bugs have 12 skinny legs
2x6=12
Three bugs make you dizzy
when you're counting their legs
They've got six more than a carton of eggs
If you count them up slowly, you'll get to 18
Cause 3x6 is 18
Three little bugs have 18 legs
3x6 is 18
When four get together, they'll start out to dance
And their wiggly legs will put you under a trance
If you count them out loud, you'll say "24"
Since 4x6 is 24
Four little bugs with 24 legs
4x6 is 24
Five bugs count up just as easily as four
All the legs of the four plus another six more
If you count up the legs on five bugs you'll get 30
Since 5x6=30
5 sets of bugs with 6 legs apiece
Equals 30 skinny legs (5x6=30)
Six is a magical number for bugs
It's the number of legs that they use when the run
That makes 36 legs on a half dozen bugs
Since 6x6 is 36
Six little bugs have 36 legs
6x6 is 36
Seven bugs make lots of noise when they walk
With their 42 feet, unless they're wearing their socks
If you count the six legs on each seven
You'll see 7x6 is 42
7 little bugs will have 42 legs
7x6 is 42
Bug, bug, bug, bug, bug, bug, bug,
Eight sets of legs underneath the rug
That's 48 legs, if you count every one
Since 8x6 is 48
Eight bugs have 48 legs
8x6 is 48
Counting the legs on 9 bugs takes time
They are wiggling in and wiggling out of line
If you keep counting legs you will hit 54
Since 9x6 is 54
Nine bugs have 54 skinny legs
9x6 is 54
Skinny bug legs help you multiply
6, 12, 18 are wiggling by
24, 30, 36, 42,
48, 54 squished under my shoe
Skinny bug legs help you multiply
6, 12, 18 are wiggling by
24, 30, 36, 42,
48, 54 squished under my shoe
Skinny bug legs help you multiply
6, 12, 18 are wiggling by
24, 30, 36, 42,
48, 54 squished under my shoe

One Really Good Thing About Seven  music sample  © 2006 Smart Kid Publishing, ASCAP
There's one really good thing about seven
Seven days make a perfect week
With only ten weeks left until my birthday
I can't wait to see them go away
I keep count of every day
Just multiply each week by seven
That's how many days closer it will be (cake for me)
Ten weeks have seventy days
10 x 7 = 70
Nine weeks have sixtythree
So 9 x 7 = 63
Eight weeks have fiftysix days
8 x 7 = 56
Seven weeks have fortynine
So 7 x 7 = 49
Six weeks have fortytwo
So 6 x 7 = 42
Just multiply each week by seven
That's how many days closer it will be (cake for me)
Five weeks have thirtyfive days
5 x 7 = 35
Four weeks have twentyeight days
4 x 7 = 28
Three weeks have twentyone days
3 x 7 = 21
Two weeks have fourteen days
2 x 7 = 14
One week has seven days
So 1 x 7 = 7
Just multiply each week by seven
That's how many days closer it will be (cake for me)
1 x 7 = 7
2 x 7 = 14
3 x 7 = 21
4 x 7 = 28
5 x 7 = 35
6 x 7 = 42
7 x 7 = 49
8 x 7 = 56
9 x 7 = 63
And 10 x 7 = 70
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
There's one really good thing about seven
We can multiply easily
And even though it's a little bit uneven
With a little practice you will see
Just how easy it can be
You get 7, 14, or 21 days
28, 35 or 42
49 days or 56
then 63 and 70
You get 7, 14, or 21 days
28, 35 or 42
49 days or 56
then 63 and 70
There's one really good thing about seven

He saw my big belly
Everyone could tell it was me
I'm no longer his employee)

Nine Months In School  music sample  © 2006 Smart Kid Publishing, ASCAP
(Most kids have to go to school for 9 months of every year. This multiplication song will help you calculate how many months of school it will take to graduate)
Do I really have to go to the 1st grade?
NINE months of school is such a bummer
Well you need to learn how to work with numbers
If you wanna have a happy summer
1 times 9 is 9,
9 long months in school
That's too long, way too long
Why talk about it in a song (Hey!)
Do I really have to go to 2nd grade?
NINE more months of school I fear
Well you need to learn how to add and subtract
You've got to use that thing between your ears
2 times 9 is 18
18 months of school
That's too long, way too long
Why talk about it in a song (Hey!)
Do I really have to go to the 3rd grade?
NINE more months, I have to complain
Well you need to learn how to multiply
It's a fast way to add when all the numbers are the same
3 times 9 is 27
27 months of school
That's too long, way too long
Why talk about it in a song (Hey!)
Nine months!
Nine months!
To multiply any one digit number by 9
All you have to do is place a zero to its right
And then subtract your original number
(Please explain)
So 4 times 9 would become 40  4, which is 36
And 7 times 9 would be 70  7 (that would be 63)
That's right!
Do I really have to go to 4th grade?
NINE months of school is just no fair
Well you've got to learn how to do long division
That way you'll know if you got a fair share
4 times 9 is 36
36 months of school
That's too long, way too long
Why talk about it in a song (Hey!)
Do I really have to go to 5th grade?
NINE months at school gives me bad reactions
Well still you need to learn how to calculate
Important things like compound fractions
5 times 9 is 45
45 months of school
That's too long, way too long
How many more months till we end this song? (Hey!)
6th grade I'll have gone 54 months; 6 x 9 is 54
7th grade I'll have gone 63 months because 7 x 9 is 63
8th grade I'll have gone 72 months; 8 x 9 is 72
And 9th grade I'll have gone 81 months because 9 x 9 is 81
By 10th grade I'll have gone 90 months
Cause 10x9 is 90
You're not quite done; by 11th grade you'll have gone 99 months
When you finish 12th grade, if you graduate,
You'll have been there 108
Nine months!
Nine months!
Nine months!

You Can Multiply By Twelve  music sample  © 2006 Smart Kid Publishing, ASCAP
If you can multiply by two (we do!)
And multiply by ten (we can!)
Then you can multiply by twelve right now
I'll show you how to begin
Just take the answer from two
And add it to the answer from ten
When you multiply by twelve
If you can multiply by two (we do!)
And multiply by ten (we can!)
Then you can multiply by twelve right now
I'll show you how to begin
Just take the answer from two
And add it to the answer from ten
When you multiply by twelve
So if you want to multiply 8 times 12,
Here's how to do it:
First, multiply 8 times 2
(That will give you 16)
And then multiply 8 times 10
(8 x 10 = 80)
To get your answer, just add the 16 and the 80
And you'll get 96
(So 8 x 12 = 96?)
Every time! (I approve)
If you multiply by 2 and 10
You can add the answers and in the end
You'll have multiplied by 12
You should be proud of yourself
Just take your answer from 2
And add it to your answer from 10
When you multiply by 12
