Figure eight is double four

Figure four is half of eight

If you skate, you would be great

If you could make a figure eight

That's a circle that turns 'round 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.

'Cause twelve times eight is the same as

Ten times eight plus two times eight

80 plus 16

96

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 is double four

Figure four is half of eight

If you skate, you would be great

If you could make a figure eight

That's a circle that turns 'round upon itself

Place it on its side and it's a symbol meaning infinity
