I Got Six

I Got Six: School House Rock video about multiplying by Six.

Lyrics from:

I got six
That's all there is
6 x 1 is 6, 1 x 6

He got six
I put mine with his, and we got 12
6 x 2 is 12, 2 x 6

I got six, you got six
She got six
We got 18 altogether
If we can get 'em all together
6 x 3 is 18, 3 x 6

I got six in my right hand
Six in my left hand
Six on my head
You got six in your pocket
Put 'em all on the floor and that's 24
6 x 4 is 24, 4 x 6

I got six red hens
They laid five eggs each
All the eggs hatched out
And the yard was full of 30 little chicks
6 x 5 is 30, 5 x 6

One fine day, they all started in to lay
I got 36 eggs, and I took 'em in the house
And I put 'em in boxes
Six eggs each, six boxes
Aw, 6 x 6 is 36, 6 x 6

"Going to the candy store"
I'll take six of these, and six of those
And six of them, and six of the others
And also six of the red, and six of the white
And six of the blue
Put 'em in one bag, that's 42
6 x 7 is 42, 7 x 6

Oh, throwin' down jacks
Pickin' up six
I made eight tricks
And didn't miss a lick
6 x 8 is 48, 8 x 6

Nine hungry men had six dollars each (Aw!)
And that's 54 bucks, but they were outta luck
'Cause 54 bucks won't buy dinner downtown, not for nine

Then there were six hungry men
They had nine dollars each (Yeah!)
And they went downtown and the waiter said:
"Sit down"
Oh, it makes a big difference how you spread it around
6 x 9 is 54, 9 x 6

See that prince over there (Yeah!)
The one with the fuzzy hair
He's got six rings on every finger
He don't wash no dishes, not with 60 diamonds
6 x 10 is 60, 10 x 6

He brought along 11 camels, now ain't that nice?
(Ain't that nice?)
Each one loaded down with six casks of oil and spice
Brought quite a price
6 x 11 is 66, 11 x 6

He had 12 wives
He better be rich
Each one had six kids
Six children each
6 x 12 is 72, 12 x 6

But me, I got six (I got six)
That's all there is (That's all there is)
6 x 1 is 6 (6 x 1 is 6)
1 x 6 (1 x 6)
I got six (I got six)
That's all here is (That's all there is)
6 x 1 is 6 (6 x 1 is 6)
1 x 6 (1 x 6)
