So I had to take a plane, which didn't seem fair,
But I knew that I would get there even faster by air,
So when I fastened my seatbelt and took to the sky
I thought I would give my times tables a try.
I started out quietly and then started rappin',
Looked down my row and saw their feet were tappin',
By the time we were flyin' at ten thousand feet,
They were dancin' in the aisles, they were dancin' on the seats.
I charmed 'em with my three's, I rocked 'em with my four's.
But when I got to eight, I heard a scream "no more!"
I saw it was the captain, so I tried to explain,
He just strapped me to a parachute, and threw me out of the plane.
8 times 5 is 40
8 times 6 is 48
8 times 7 is 56
8 times 8 is 64.
I knew right then I would have to take the bus,
'Cause on planes and trains they make such a fuss,
It's just Multiply Rap, the "Times" made to rhyme,
The way they reacted, you swear it's some kind of crime.
I told this to the people I was sitting next to,
They asked me if I wouldn't mind rappin' a few,
And before we even drove a mile down the street
They were dancin' in the aisles, they were dancin' on the seats.
I charmed 'em with my three's, I rocked 'em with my four's.
But when I got to eight, I heard a scream "no more!",
It was the bus driver, so I tried to explain,
He just threw me off the bus and left me standin' in the rain.
8 times 9 is 72
8 times 10 is 80
8 times 11 is 88
8 times 12 is 96
So there I was, in front of the committee,
I was tellin' 'em why I had come to the city,
I had walked forty miles, got thrown off a train,
A plane and a bus without time to explain
This is TIMES TABLES RAP and you just can't deny
How important it is to learn how to multiply,
I charmed 'em with my three's, I rocked 'em with my four's,
But when I got to eight I heard 'em scream "no more!"
They said "Son, you're the greatest, and that's a fact,
We're gonna send you home with a recording contract,
And we want you to know that we appreciate your pain,
So here's a billion dollars and a ticket for the train."
8 times 1 is 8
8 times 2 is 16,
8 times 3 is 24,
8 times 4 is 32,
8 times 5 is 40,
8 times 6 is 48,
8 times 7 is 56,
8 times 8 is 64,
8 times 9 is 72,
8 times 10 is 80,
8 times 11 is 88,
8 times 12 is 96.
8 times 12 is 96...
8 times 12 is 96...
