LYRICS


Count back, Count Back Cat
Always counts back and that’s a fact!
Count back, Count Back Cat
Never counts up and that’s a fact!

My cat, Count Back saved 50 dollars,
Went out to buy chocolate donuts, and collars,
Count Back Cat thought the cash would last
But the money got spent oh-so fast!

Count Back’s counting back
Count Back’s counting back
Let’s help Count Back count by fives!

Everybody help Count Back count back from 50 by 5’s

50-45-40-35-30-25-20-15-10-5
Then 0 dollars left to spend my friend!
Let’s count it again, let’s count it again!
50-45-40-35-30-25-20-15-10-5
Then 0 dollars left to spend!

She was so sad!

Now my cat Count Back was really in a bind,
She had no money left from counting back all the time.
So I told Count Back, If you wanna’ have some cash,
You gotta’ learn to count up!
You should learn it really fast!

Count back, Count Cack Cat,
Always counts back and that’s a fact!

My cat, Count Back saved 100 dollars,
Went out to buy chocolate donuts, and collars,
Count Back Cat thought the cash would last
But the money got spent oh-so fast!
