"I Got Six" as written by and B. Dorough....

I got six

That's all there is

Six time one is six, one times six

He got six

I put mine with his and we got twelve

Six time two is twelve, two times six

I got six, you got six

She got six

We got eighteen altogether

If we can get them all together

Six time three is eighteen, three times six

I got six in my right hand

Six in my left hand

Six on my head

And you got six in your pocket

Put them all on the floor - that's 24

Six time four is 24, four times six

I got six red hens

They laid five eggs each

All the eggs hatched out

And the yard was full of 30 little chicks

Six time five is 30, five times six

One fine day

They all started in to lay

I got 36 eggs, and I took them in the house

And I put them in boxes

Six eggs each, six boxes

Aw, six times six is 36, six times six

Going to the candy store -

I'll take six of these and six of those

And six of them and six of the others

And also six of the red, six of the white

And six of the blue

I'll put them in one bag - that's 42

Six times seven is 42, seven times six

Oh, I'm throwing downtown

Picking up six

I made eight tricks

And didn't miss a lick

Six times eight is 48, eight times six

Nine hungry men had six dollars each (aw!)

That's 54 bucks

But they were out of luck

Because 54 bucks won't buy dinner downtown

Not for nine

Then there were six hungry men

They had nine dollars each (yeah!)

And they went downtown, and the waiter said, "Sit down!"

Oh, it makes a big difference how you spread it around

Six time nine is 54, nine times six

See that prince over there? (Yeah!)

The one with the fuzzy hair

He's got six rings on every finger

He don't wash no dishes

Not with 60 diamonds

Six time ten is 60, ten times six

He brought along eleven camels

Now, ain't that nice? (Ain't that nice?)

Each one loaded down with six casks of oil and spice

Brought quite a price

Six time eleven is 66, eleven times six

He had twelve wives

He better be rich

Each one had six kids, six children each

Six time twelve is 72, twelve times six

But me, I got six (I got six)

That's all there is (That's all there is)

Six times one is six, one times six

I got six (I got six)

That's all there is (That's all there is)

That's all there is

Six time one is six, one times six

He got six

I put mine with his and we got twelve

Six time two is twelve, two times six

I got six, you got six

She got six

We got eighteen altogether

If we can get them all together

Six time three is eighteen, three times six

Six in my left hand

0General CommentI saw about 4 or 5 Schoolhouse Rock videos every Saturday morning when I was a kid. Now my kids have the DVD. I still chuckle when I hear, "...and the waiter said "Sit Down! Oh I makes a big difference how you spread it around" and also, "He had twelve wives. HE BETTER BE RICH !"on July 05, 2010Link
