Figure eight as double four
Figure four as half of eight
If you skate, you would be great
If you could make a figure eight
That's a circle that turns around upon itself

One times eight is two times four
Four times four is two times eight
If you skate upon thin ice
You'd be wise if you thought twice
Before you made another single move

One times eight is eight, two times eight is 16
Three times eight is 24, four times eight is 32
And five times eight is 40, you know

Six times eight is 48, seven times eight is 56
Eight times eight is 64, nine times eight is 72
And ten times eight is 80, that's true

Eleven times eight is 88, and twelve times eight is 96
Now, here's a chance to get off
On your new math tricks
Because twelve times eight is the same as
Ten times eight plus two times eight
80 plus 16 . . . ninety-six!

One times eight is eight, two times eight is 16
Three times eight is 24, four times eight is 32
And five times eight is 40, you know

Figure eight as double four
Figure four as half of eight
If you skate, you would be great
If you could make a figure eight
That's a circle that turns around upon itself

Place it on its side and it's a symbol meaning
Infinity . . .
