## Lyrics

*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.*

*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 thought 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...
