FIGURE EIGHT

Music & Lyrics: Bob Dorough
Sung by: Blossom Dearie

Figure eight, is double four.
Figure four, is half of eight.
If you skate, you would be great,
If you could make a figure eight.
That's a circle that turns 'round upon itself.

One times eight is two times four.
Four times four is two times eight.
If you skate upon thin ice,
You'd be wise, if you looked twice
Before you made another single move. One times eight is eight, two times
eight is 16
Three times eight is 24, four times eight is 32
And five times eight is 40, you know.

Six times eight is 48, seven times eight is 56,
Eight times eight is 64, nine times eight is 72,
And ten times eight is 80, that's true.

Eleven times eight is 88, and twelve times eight is 96.
Now here's a chance to get off on your new math tricks:
'Cause twelve times eight is the same as ten times eight
Plus two times eight:
80 plus 16, ninety-six!

One times eight is eight, two times eight is 16
Three times eight is 24, four times eight is 32
And five times eight is 40, you know. Figure eight, as double four.
Figure four, as half of eight.
If you skate, you would be great,
If you could make a figure eight.
That's a circle that turns 'round upon itself.

Place it on its side and it's a symbol meaning infinity.
