One Is Like A Copy Machine  music sample  © 2006 Smart Kid Publishing, ASCAP
To multiply by one is such an interesting thing
It's a little like using a copy machine
You'll get back a picture of what you put in

And you'll see what I mean
(When you multiply a number by one, the answer is that number)
1 x 1 = _____, you see

3 x 1 = _____ I'll bet you know

It mirrors the image of most anything
So unless you're really dumb
You can now multiply by one

It reminds me of the holes in my head
When I've got to multiply
I think about the holes in my head

Since I've got one head
And it just has five
Holes that help me figure out
How to multiply by five

Whenever the two of us get together
There are 10 holes in 2 heads

My daddy's name is Ted
We have the same looking head
When he joins our little party and he isn't tardy
We've got 30 holes in 6 heads

(I'm very comfortable with this concept; Please tell me more)
The dreadlocks on his head
Covered up the 5 holes of Ned
But we know he's got them and when they're all counted
35 holes in 7 heads
(7 x 5 is ____, 7 x 5 is ____)
Don't believe everything you've read
Aunty Mildred said
The eight of us all agreed

Our coach's name is Grover
We had to get him out of bed
We needed someone in charge of multiplying
All the holes in 10 heads

When you multiply by five
The answers that you get
Will end in fives or tens
5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45
