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 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...
