I’m walking down,

Times-Table Street,

Looking for a bite to eat,

Singing this silly song,

When I stepped,

On something wrong…

A little, little, little guy,

With a twinkle in his eye,

Jumped and laughed,

And said,

Help me giant, giant man,

I know you might not understand,

But the planet,

Where I’m from,

Needs 7 x 8 bites of bubble gum…

I don’t need the difference,

I don’t need the sum,

I need 7 x 8,

Pieces of gum…

What’s 7 x 8? What’s 7 x 8?

What’s 7 x 8 my friend?

My people need to know!

Tell me 7 x 8 my friend?

Hurry, I gotta’ go…

This was strange,

But I was able,

Knew that fact,

That times table,

Seemed a good guy,

On a short limb,

This is what,

I said to him…

I’m not sure,

How I know,

But I think,

This is how it goes,

7 x 8 = 56,

Cause I know this little trick,

Numbers line up,

In a row,

Numbers line up,

Ain’t it great,

5-6-7-8,

56, just 7 x 8…

Thank you,

Thank you,

Thank you man,

I say you saved the day,

56 bites of bubble gum,

And I’ll be on my way!

Thank you for that,

Little trick,

For 8 x 7 now,

Say it to me one more time,

So I remember how…

So I said that fact again,

It went a bit like this,

Said that product one more time,

So he’d never miss,

I’m not sure,

How I know,

But I think,

This is how it goes,

7 x 8 = 56

Cause I know this little trick,

Numbers line up,

In a row,

Numbers line up,

Ain’t it great,

5-6-7-8,

56, just 7 x 8…

The little man,

Bought his gum,

At the corner store,

Handed me 4 pieces,

He had 60-4,

Whenever you wanna’

Come and see us,

We’re high up in the sky,

To the left,

Of mercury,

And past the planet pi…

He took off,

Like a bolt of lightening,

On his rocket ship,

Something that I’ve never seen,

Was it all just a dream?

I had to get a grip…

All I know,

Is what I know,

And this is what I say…

8 x 7’s 56

Each and every day!

I’m not sure,

How I know,

But I think,

This is how it goes,

7 x 8 is 56,

Cause I know this little trick,

Numbers line up,

In a row,

Numbers line up,

Ain’t it great,

5-6-7-8,

56, just 7 x 8…
