Multuply Songs

Multuply Songs

Here is the Learn To Multiply workbook. The material here is not designed to be a standalone curriculum. The intent is to augment whatever curriculum you are using to help your child learn to multiply.

Learning to multiply involves two areas:

1. Memorization of the multiplication table.
2. A conceptual understanding of what multiplying is accomplishing.

Learning one without the other may hinder your child’s learning of other math concepts. This supplement is designed to help your child learn and understand both.

Now eleven times two is twenty two
And eleven times three is thirty three
Eleven times four is forty four
Don't fall asleep there's a little bit more.

We've got to get past eleven times five
The answer you know is fifty five
And lets slip on by eleven times six
You may not know that's sixty six.

You know we're half way through and that sounds like heaven
Eleven times seven is seventy seven
Eleven times eight is eighty eight
Man your goooood, I think that's great!

We're headed home with no stop signs
Eleven times nine is ninety nine
I've said it before and I'll say it again
Eleven times ten IS a hundred and ten

We're almost through, are you hav'in fun?
Eleven times eleven, hundred twenty one.
Now when you get to twelve don't look so blue
Eleven times twelve ... hundred thirty two.

There was an old lady who lived in a shoe
There were in her shoe nine spiders too
And in each spider’s web its said nine flies that were dead

Eighty one flies in her shoe boo hoo
Oh what is a woman to do boo hoo
With eighty one flies in her shoe boo hoo

There was an old lady who lived in a shoe
There were in her shoe nine spiders too
And in each spider’s web its said ten flies that were dead

Ninety dead flies in her shoe boo hoo
Oh what is a woman to do boo hoo
With ninety dead flies in her shoe boo hoo

Now one more spider moved in with the nine
This spider asked am I wasting my time
Can ten spiders live in this old lady’s shoe
The nine spiders said, “Ya sure, you betcha!”

There was an old lady who lived in a shoe
There were in her shoe ten spiders too
And in each spider’s web its said ten flies that were dead

One hundred flies in her shoe boo hoo
Oh what is a woman to do boo hoo
With one hundred flies in her shoe boo hoo

Well eight mice were riding their Harley Davidsons.
They stopped to pick some apples on the way to Oregon.
Each one picked eight apples but they didn't stop to play.
They had sixty four apples they could eat all day.

Well eight mice were riding their Harley Davidsons.
They stopped to pick some apples on the way to Wisconsin.
Each one picked nine apples but they didn't stop to play.
They had seventy two apples they could eat all day.

Well eight mice were riding their Harley Davidsons.
They stopped to pick some apples on the way to Michigan.
Each one picked ten apples but they didn't stop to play.
They had eighty apples they could eat all day.

Now when they got to Mama's house how they were surprised
She had baked all day for them......
and made them apple pie.

There's a little green frog floatin in the water
A little green frog was joined by six others
Seven green frogs ate seven flies each
Forty nine flies were within easy reach.

There's a little green frog floatin in the water
A little green frog was joined by six others
Seven green frogs ate eight flies each
Fifty six flies were within easy reach.

There's a little green frog floatin in the water
A little green frog was joined by six others
Seven green frogs ate nine flies each
Sixty three flies were within easy reach.

There's a little green frog floatin in the water
A little green frog was joined by six others
Seven green frogs ate ten flies each
Seventy flies were within easy reach.

There were seven green frogs floatin in the water
Seven green frogs were scolded by their fathers
Seven green frogs ate all those flies
Now they're told it's supper time.

Six furry squirrels came down a tree
Looking for nuts for you and for me
They each found six among the sticks
When they gathered them together they had thirty six.

Six furry squirrels came down a tree
Looking for nuts for you and for me
These six furry squirrels were feeling kinda blue
They each found seven nuts which gave us forty two.

Six furry squirrels came down a tree
Looking for nuts for you and for me
Those six furry squirrels found eight nuts each
Forty eight nuts we can eat at the beach

Six furry squirrels came down a tree
Looking for nuts for you and for me
They each found nine nuts and gave us fifty four
After eating those nuts we still wanted more

Six furry squirrels came down a tree
They each found ten nuts for you and me
Sixty nuts was a bit too much
So we thanked those squirrels and went out to lunch

I'm gonna tell a tale 'bout four sneaky snails
It won't be scary so don't bite your nails
Each sneaky snail snuck up on four sleeping skunks
And laughed and played for hours while they ate their lunch
The sixteen skunks awoke and sprayed them with their tails
And now the four are called the stinky snails.

I'm gonna tell a tale 'bout four sneaky snails
It won't be scary so don't bite your nails
Each sneaky snail snuck up on five sleeping skunks
And laughed and played for hours while they ate their lunch
The twenty skunks awoke and sprayed them with their tails
And now the four are called the stinky snails.

I'm gonna tell a tale 'bout four sneaky snails
It won't be scary so don't bite your nails
Each sneaky snail snuck up on six sleeping skunks
And laughed and played for hours while they ate their lunch
Twenty four skunks awoke and sprayed them with their tails
And now the four are called the stinky snails.

I'm gonna tell a tale 'bout four sneaky snails
It won't be scary so don't bite your nails
Each sneaky snail snuck up on seven sleeping skunks
And laughed and played for hours while they ate their lunch
Twenty eight skunks awoke and sprayed them with their tails
And now the four are called the stinky snails.

I'm gonna tell a tale 'bout four sneaky snails
It won't be scary so don't bite your nails
Each sneaky snail snuck up on eight sleeping skunks
And laughed and played for hours while they ate their lunch
Thirty two skunks awoke and sprayed them with their tails
And now the four are called the stinky snails.

I'm gonna tell a tale 'bout four sneaky snails
It won't be scary so don't bite your nails
Each sneaky snail snuck up on nine sleeping skunks
And laughed and played for hours while they ate their lunch
Thirty six skunks awoke and sprayed them with their tails
And now the four are called the stinky snails.

I'm gonna tell a tale 'bout four sneaky snails
It won't be scary so don't bite your nails
Each sneaky snail snuck up on ten sleeping skunks
And laughed and played for hours while they ate their lunch
The forty skunks awoke and sprayed them with their tails
And now the four are called the stinky snails.

3 blind cats. 3 blind cats. See how they chase. See how they chase.
They each ran after 3 mice in a race.
The 9 mice turned and just laughed in the face of 3 blind cats.

3 blind cats. See how they chase. See how they chase.
They each ran after 4 mice in a race.
The 12 mice turned and just laughed in the face of 3 blind cats. 3 blind cats.

Bridge (To the tune of Oh Susanna)

Now these blind cats had wizened up, and came to realize.
That if they were to eat today, a plan they should devise.
They knew that there were 3 of them. And if they’d each catch 5.
Then 15 mice would be enough to keep them all alive.

Chorus: These 3 cats dreamed of catching 6 mice each
And taking 18 mice for lunch, they’d head down towards the beach.

Verse 1: So each cat bought a trap and cheese, the mice they would surprise.
And while they waited for their catch, they snacked on some french fries.

Chorus: 3 cats each caught 7 mice to keep.
But 21 mice were too much for 3 fat cats too eat.

Verse 2: So after each cat lost some weight, again they set their trap.
And off they went to get away to take a short catnap.

Chorus: 3 cats each caught 8 mice they could eat.
But 24 mice got away, while they were asleep.

Verse 3: Now once again they set their trap, and then went out to play.
For Old McDonald had a farm, and on it was some hay.

Chorus: 3 cats each caught 9 mice at noonday
But 27 sneaky mice got out and ran away.

Verse 4: The 3 cats each gave 10 dollars because they had a hunch
That spending 30 dollars would be easier for lunch.

Chorus: So all 3 cats went merrily on their way.
And all the mice they caught that day yelled yip yippee, aye ay.

If you take some time and learn to multiply
With numbers 1 through 10 you'll never have to cry
So the sooner we get started you'll be through
Cause I know you've got some better things to do.
We'll cover 1 and 2 so listen carefully
Then you'll have to hear some other songs from me.

If you take any number times a 1
You get that number back and find you'll have some fun
So for example 3 times 1 is 3
Can't you see just how easy this will be
5 times 1 is 5 and 1 times 4 is 4
Let's keep going and we'll do a few more.

23 times 1 you know is 23
1 times 44 is 44 you see
and 68 times 1 will equal 68
I think we'll stop for now before it gets too late.
So remember when you multiply by 1
You get that number back and find you'll have some fun.

Lets move on for now and go to number 2
It's just as fun as number one was for you
2 times 2 is 4 and 2 times 3 is six
Just keep moving on and hope you don't get sick
2 times 4 is eight and 2 times 5 is ten
We'll be finished soon it's just I don't know when.

2 times 6 is twelve you're doing very well
2 times 7 is fourteen see what I mean
You should know that 2 times 8 is sixteen
And 2 times 9 is eighteen that's peachy keen
Now you may find your friends are green with envy
When you tell them 2 times 10 is 20.

You've learned a lot for now but still there's more to come
And I congratulate you for a job well done
You've got at lot to think about oh yes you do
And in the next song I'll be back to help you too.
