A fun song to help teach how to count back from 20!

 

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 20 like this:

20-19-18-17-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

Counting back from 20 is so much fun!

20-19-18-17-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

Counting back from 20 is so much fun!

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 20 like this:

20-19-18-17-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

Counting back from 20 is so much fun!

20-19-18-17-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

Counting back from 20 is so much fun!

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 birthday comes around, it‘ll be so great!

A giant batch of cupcakes, Mom’s gonna’ make,

She said she’s making 20, that’s the number that she’ll bake…

Then she counted 20 cupcakes like this:

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16-17-18-19-20

Then when they get eaten, she’ll count back from 20 like this:

20-19-18-17-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

Counting back from 20 is so much fun!

20-19-18-17-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

Counting back from 20 is so much fun!
