comma me
(place value to thousands)

1-2-3,
Comma me!
After 3,
It’s a comma you see..
And that first comma there,
That’s the thousands comma,
Didn’t you hear?
1-2-3,
Digits for me,
When there’s 3,
It’s the hundreds you see…
321
But when those 3,
Turn to 4,
You pass the hundreds,
1,321
And a comma's in store…
Every time,
You see that first comma,
Just say thousand,
Don’t ask your mama,
Every time you see that first comma,
Just say thousand,
Just say thousand,
Like this, like this...
(say the number you see in front of the comma,
when you see the comma, say "thousand"
Then say the number you see after the comma)

9, 402
52, 486,
255, 321

1-2-3
Comma me,
More than 3,
It’s a comma you see...
And that first comma there,
That’s the thousands comma,
Didn’t you hear?
Every time,
You see that first comma,
Just say thousand,
Don’t ask your mama,
Every time,
You see that first comma,
Just say thousand,
Just say thousand,
Like this, like this,
Like this, like this...

8, 888
(number, then "thousand, then 888)
88, 888
(number, then "thousand, then 888)
888, 888
(number, then "thousand, then 888)

1-2-3,
Comma me,
More than 3,
It’s a comma you see...
And that first comma there,
That’s the thousands comma,
Didn’t you hear?
Every time,
You see that first comma,
Just say thousand,
Don’t ask your mama,
Every time,
You see that first comma,
Just say thousand,
Just say thousand,
Like this, like this,
Like this, like this...

3,678
57,821
321,654

1-2-3
Comma me,
More than 3,
It’s a comma you see...
And that first comma there,
That’s the thousands comma,
Didn’t you hear?
Every time,
You see that first comma,
Just say thousand,
Don’t ask your mama,
Every time,
You see that first comma,
Just say thousand,
Just say thousand...
(when you see the second comma, say "million")
