Multiply by Hen (multiplying by 10)
Every time, I 'timesed' by ten, Got it wrong, I’d try again... Still I couldn’t ever get it right, Times tables trouble, Day and night… Old man said, Hen can fix... I laughed out loud, Old man tricks... Hens don’t know, Their 5’s or 10s, They don’t know, Because they’re hens… Just go give, Hen a try, Said the man, Winked his eye… I guess it couldn’t hurt, Couldn’t hurt you know…
(chorus) When you multiply it, Multiply it by 10, You drop a single zero, On the end… When you multiply it, Multiply it by 10, You drop a 0 on the end! When you multiply it, Multiply it by 10, You drop a 0, On the end…
Took my math, To hen's pen, Looked at her, Laughed again, This was silly, I knew hens, Don't know 5's, Don’t know 10's...
Homework said 10 x 6, I couldn’t think of teacher’s tricks, I couldn’t multiply, Multiply by 10… 10 x 6, Hard for me, Should of been real E-Z, Can hen solve it, 10 x 6, Let’s see!!! (chorus)
Hen grabbed pen, And hen grabbed pad, Wrote a 6, And looked real glad, She turned around, An egg she laid, Right behind the 6, I was amazed... Read her answer, Right out loud, Old man's hen, She felt real proud... The egg made zero, After 6, Egg made it 60, Hen knew tricks… Then I knew, I knew right then, Old man was right, He was right again, You should never, never, never, Never doubt a hen…
