# Blind Melon - Three Is A Magic Number Lyrics

Three, oh, it's the magic number,

Yeah it is, it's the magic number

Somewhere in that ancient mystic trinity

You get three

It's the magic number

With the past and the present and the future

And faith and hope and charity

And the heart and the brain and the body

It'll give you three; it's a magic number,

It takes three legs to make a tripod

Or to make a table stand

And it takes three wheels to make a vehicle

And call it a tricycle

Every triangle has three corners

Every triangle has three sides

No more, no less

You don't have to guess

That is three, can't you see?

It's the magic number

A man and a woman had a little baby

Yes they did,

There were three in the family

That's the magic number

3 6 9

12 15 18

21 24 27

30

3 6 9

12 15 18

21 24 27

30

Now multiply backwards from 3 x 10

Oh, well 3 x 10 is?

30

And 3 x 9 is?

27

3 x 8 is?

24

3 x 7 is?

21

3 x 6 is 18

3 x 5 is 15

3 x 4 is 12

And 3 x 3 is 9

And 3 x 2 is 6

And 3 x 1 is 3, of course

Now dig the pattern once more

3 6 9

12 15 18

Oh! 3 x 10 is?

30

And 3 x 9 is?

27

3 x 8 is?

24

3 x 7 is?

21

3 x 6 is 18

3 x 5 is 15

3 x 4 is 12

And 3 x 3 is 9

And 3 x 2 is 6

And 3 x 1…

What is it?

3!

Yeah!

A man and a woman had a little baby

There were three in the family

And that's the magic number

Yeah it is, it's the magic number

Somewhere in that ancient mystic trinity

You get three

It's the magic number

With the past and the present and the future

And faith and hope and charity

And the heart and the brain and the body

It'll give you three; it's a magic number,

It takes three legs to make a tripod

Or to make a table stand

And it takes three wheels to make a vehicle

And call it a tricycle

Every triangle has three corners

Every triangle has three sides

No more, no less

You don't have to guess

That is three, can't you see?

It's the magic number

A man and a woman had a little baby

Yes they did,

There were three in the family

That's the magic number
