A fun song to help teach how to count back from ten!

 

LYRICS


I once had a cat named Count Back Cat
who never counted up and that’s a fact
I said, "Count up,”
Count Back Cat
She said I’ll never ever, never ever do that!
Then she counted back from ten like this:

10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 - 1
Count Back!

10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 - 1
Count Back!

10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 - 1
Count Back!

I asked my cat to count up,
and she said I’ll never do that
she said she had a good reason too…

Why won’t you count up Count Back Cat?
She said I really have a very good reason for that
I said count up, Count Back Cat
She said I’ll never ever, never ever do that!
Then she counted back from ten like this:

10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 - 2 - 1
Count Back!

10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 - 2 - 1
Count Back!

10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 - 2 - 1
Count Back!

I asked Count back cat what her reason was
for never counting up it went a bit like this:

She told me the reason why she always counted back
She said it’s very simple, it’s a very simple fact
She said that she’s counting the days left to wait
Until her friend visits her, it’ll be so great
She let me know her friend’s name is Count Up Cat
And he only counts up, and that’s a fact!
Then she counted up from ten like this:

1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 - 7 – 8 – 9 - 10
Count up!

1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 - 7 – 8 – 9 - 10
Count up!

1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 - 7 – 8 – 9 - 10

Now count back again!

10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 - 2 - 1
Count Back!

10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 - 2 - 1
Count Back!

10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 - 2 - 1
Count Back!
