The number of nickels a quarter is worth,

Is something I can’t figure out…

2, or 3, or 6, or 9,

I’m sitting here riddled with doubt…

I need 25 cents to ride this ride,

But nickels are all that I got,

So how many nickels equal a quarter,

I know it can’t be a lot…

I don’t count them by 10’s,

Or 7’s, or 1’s,

Nickels are always 5 cents!

5 then 10,

15 then 20,

Skip-counting makes really good sense…

But 20 cents is not enough,

I need the whole 25,

One more nickel makes my goal,

And now I can ride this sweet ride!
