LYRICS

7 digits down the line
Gives you millions every time,
7 digits right to left,
A million reasons you’re the best!
Hundreds, thousands, than the millions,
They’re the ones before the billions
Hundreds, thousands, than the millions,
They’re the ones before the billions..
Try to say this number now,
If you can’t we’ll show you how
Try to say this number now,
If you can’t we’ll show you how

7,135, 324

Thousand comma first in line,
Millions comma, it’s all mine,
Thousands comma after 3,
Millions after 6 you see!
Hundreds, thousands, than the millions,
They’re the ones before the billions
Hundreds, thousands, than the millions,
They’re the ones before the billions..
Try to say this number now,
If you can’t we’ll show you how
Try to say this number now,
If you can’t we’ll show you how

15, 250, 324

Try to say this number now,
If you can’t we’ll show you how
Try to say this number now,
If you can’t we’ll show you how

Gives you millions every time,
7 digits right to left,
A million reasons you’re the best!
Hundreds, thousands, than the millions,

After thousands don’t you know,
Go and say you’re numbers now,
Thousands, millions, you know how…
Hundreds, thousands, than the millions,
They’re the ones before the billions!
Hundreds, thousands, than the millions,
They’re the ones before the billions…
