# multiply 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,
Wrote a 6,
She turned around,
An egg she laid,
Right behind the 6,
I was amazed…
