Ready Or Not, Here I Come

Ready Or Not, Here I Come: School House Rock video about multiplying by Five.

Lyrics

Now everybody try to find a good hidin' place
This old tree is gonna be the base
I'm gonna close my eyes and hide my face
And count to a hundred by fives
Ready? Go!

5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50,
55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, 100
Ready or not, here I come

Apple, peaches, pumpkin pie
Who's not ready, holler "I" - *I*
Aw, all right, I'll count it again
But you better get hid, kid
Here we go
5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50,
55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, 100, 105, 110, 115, 120
There!

A bushel of wheat, and a bushel o' rye
Who's not hid, holler "I"
Twenty nickels makes a dollar
I didn't hear anybody holler
5 x 20 is 100
Everybody got to be hi
All eyes open, here I come. Whew!

Multiplying by five is a little like countin' by five. In
fact, if you counted along on your fingers as you
counted out loud by fives, your fingers would tell
you how many fives you've got.

Ok, let's count together, now
Count on your fingers
One finger for each count out loud
Get set. Ready? Go!

5, 10, 15, 20 - STOP!

20. You got four fingers, see?
That means 4 x 5 is 20
Let's try another one
Get set. Ready? Go!

5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 - STOP!
35. Seven fingers
That's right, 7 x 5 is 35

Ok, let's try a longer one
Now when you run out of fingers at 50
You see, because 10 x 5 is 50
Then start over with the same fingers
And remember that you owe ten
Get set. Ready? Go!

5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60 - STOP!
Ten and two, right? That's twelve fingers
12 x 5 is 60. See how it works?

Now you may notice that if you multiply five by an
even number, your product will end in zero, and if
you multiply five by an odd number your product will
end in five.

Ok, now let's do one more game counting by fives
on our fingers
This is a long number, keep going
Get set. Ready? Go!

5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75,
80, 85 - STOP!
85. Seventeen fingers
Look at that boy with 17 fingers stickin' up
How do you do that , kid?
Anyway, 5 x 17 is 85

See, that's three fives short of a hundred. If you
had three more nickels - 15 cents - then added the 15
to the 85 you'd get a hundred, right?

'Cause 5 x 20 is 100
Everybody gotta be hit, it's...

5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50,
55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, 100
Ready or not, here I come!
