Commas!

There's a comma that you need in a number,
If your number has more than 3,

DIGITS!!!

There's a comma that you need in a number,

HIT IT

Say 1-2-3, POW!
The comma goes after three,
Starting from the right,
Moving to the left,
It's really very easy you see...

Say bop-bop-bop BANG!
The comma goes after 3,
Starting from the right,
Moving to the left,
It's really very easy you see...

1-2-3,
Thousands
1-2-3,
Millions
Every three digits,
That's how commas go!

The hundreds from the thousands,
It makes them easy to read...

The thousands from the millions,
After 6 digits you see!
