"Lucky Seven Sampson" as written by and Bob Dorough....
Now you can call me Lucky, because Lucky's my name
Singing and dancing, that's my game
I never did a whole day's work in my life
Still everything seems to turn out right
Like a grasshopper on a summer's day
I just love to play
And pass the time away
Because I was born beneath a lucky star
They said I'd go far

Making people happy, that's my favorite game
Lucky Seven is my natural name
Slipping and sliding my whole life through
Still I get everything done that I got to do
Because I was born beneath a lucky star

School is where you are?
Aw, that's not hard
Let me show you something

You multiply seven times one
I got seven days to get that problem done
Multiply seven times two
Take 14 laughs when you're feeling blue
Multiply seven times three
A 21-day vacation you can play with me
Multiply seven times four
You got 28 days (that's-a one month more)
To pay the mortgage on your store
Don't worry, something will turn up!

Multiply seven times five
I don't know how you did it, but man alive, that's 35
Multiply seven times six
Grab a stick and make a 42 clickety-clicks
Multiply seven times seven
Take 49 steps right up to seventh heaven
Multiply seven times eight
They got 56 flavors and I just can't wait
Multiply seven times nine
63 musicians, all friends of mine
Multiply seven times ten
And that brings you right back to 70 again

You know, I think that's important
There's a trick there somewhere

Multiply seven times eleven
Even a rabbit knows that's 70 plus seven
Multiply seven times twelve
You got 84, and isn't that swell
I'm going to try seven times 13, just for fun
70 plus 21
Seven times 14 must be great
Well, exactly, that's a 70 plus 28
Seven times 15, man alive
That's 70 plus 35 . . . a hundred and five!

Man, this stuff is simple, no jive
You got it, now I got to fly
Excuse me folks, I'm saying goodbye
I sure do thank you for the huckleberry pie
Take it home, boys

Remember Lucky Seven Sampson, that's my natural born name
If you should ask me again, I'd have to tell you the same
You'll wake up tomorrow, you'll be glad that I came
Because you'll be singing one of the songs that I sang
So keep a happy outlook and be good to your friend
And maybe I'll pass this way again
