Mr. R.'s count by 10's song!

Lyrics:

Dig a dog a bone, dig dig a dog a bone,
Dig a dog a bone, dig dig a dog a bone,

This old man,
Learning tens,
Asked to sing his tens again,
10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100!

(old man said that was way too fast! )
 
Nick nack, paddy whack,
Paddy paddy whack whack,
That was way too fast!
Nick nack, paddy whack,
Paddy paddy whack whack,
That was way too fast!

10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90,
Next one up is one hundred,
That is how we count by tens!

(But old man said that’s still too fast)

Nick nack, paddy whack,
Paddy paddy whack whack,
That was still too fast!
Nick nack, paddy whack, 
Paddy paddy whack hwack,
That was still too fast!

That old man,
Said at last,
You’re counting way, way, way too fast!
Can we count tens,
Really, really slow,
That is how we learn and know!

  (so I tried this)

10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100!
Yes! That’s the way the old man,
That’s the way the old man counts by tens!

Then old man,
Said to me
Can you really challenge me?
I said, let’s count,  
Back by tens,
We began to sing again!

(So this time we counted down from 100 by tens)

100, 90, 80, 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, 0!

Yes , that’s the way the old man,
That’s the way the old man,
Counts back by tens!

This old man,
Counts by tens,
Let’s all sing with him again,
Nick nack paddy whack,
Paddy paddy whack whack,
I can count by tens!
Dig a dog a bone, Dig a dog a bone,
Dig a dog a bone, Dig a dog a bone,

10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90,
Next one up is 100,
That is how we count by tens!
 
(Well that old man found some dimes
He said, “I can count dimes by tens. Dimes are ten cents each,”
Let’s try to count them!)

10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100!
100 cents makes a dollar!

Yes, that’s the way the old man
That’s the way the old man counts by tens!

That old man,
Was happy!
Thanks for counting 10’s with me!
10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100…

Nick nack, paddy whack,
Paddy paddy whack whack,,
We can count by tens!
Nick nack, paddy whack,
Paddy paddy, whack whack,
We can count by tens!

10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90,
Next one up is 100,
That is how we count by tens!

That’s how old man counts by tens,
He can count by tens!
That’s how old man counts by tens,
He can count by tens…

Nick nack, paddy whack,
Paddy paddy whack whack,
Thanks for teaching me!
Nick nack, paddy whack,
Paddy paddy whack,
Next time we’ll count by 3!
