Figure eight as double four,
Figure four as half of eight.
If you skate, you would be great
If you could make a figure 8.
That's a circle that turns 'round upon Itself.
1 x 8 is 2 x 4.
4 x 4 is 2 x 8.
If you Skate upon thin Ice,
You'd be wise If you thought twice
before you made another single move.
1 x 8 is 8,2 x 8 is l6,
3 x 8 is 24, 4 x 8 is 32,
and 5 X 8 is 40, you know.
6 x 8 is 48, 7 x 8 IS 56,
8 x 8 Is 64, 9 x 8 IS 72,
and 10 x 8 is 80, that's true.
11 x 8 is 88, and 12 x 8 is 96.
Now, here's a chance to get off
On your new math tricks.
'Cause 12 x 8 is the same as
10 x 8 Plus 2 X 8
80 plus 16 ... 96
1 x 8 is 8, 2 x 8 is 16
3 x 8 is 24, 4 x 8 is 32
and 5 x 8 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 8.
That's a circle that turns 'round upon itself.
Place it on its side and it's a symbol meaning
Infinity ...
