## Lyrics

**Miss Flamiel**:*Yakko?*

**Yakko**:*Yes, Miss Flamiel?*

**Miss Flamiel**:*I want you to multiply 47 x 83.*

**Yakko**:- 7 x 3 is 21,
- Which, as you know,
- Is just two 10s plus 1, and so,
- We put the 1 right here,
- And we carry the 2, one left
- To the top of the tens place, right next door
- And we put it on top of the number 4,
- Which is really four 10s that we multiply
- Times 3 in the ones place and that's why
- We now have 12, which we add to the 2
- That we carry to get 14.

*See how easy that was?*

- Oho, it's multiplication
- It's math education.
- Hey, Albert Einstein said
- That it's so easy to do.
- It's simple, it's breezy,
- It's fun and it's easy,
- Just buy a calculator,
- You can multiply, too!

*And now, the second digit.*

- 7 x 8 is 56,
- Which, as you know,
- Is just five 10s plus 6, and so,
- We put the 6 right here
- In the tens place, left of the 1
- And we carry the 5 like we did before
- To the top of the tens place next to the 4,
- Then multiply that 4 x 8
- To get 32. See, isn't this great?
- Then, we add the 5 that we carried before
- To get 37, then add once more
- Straight down to get 3,901!

*Isn't this swell?*

- Oh, let's give multiplication
- A standing ovation!
- Isaac Newton multiplied
- A couple times two!

**Yakko and Newton**:- Times two! Times two! Times two!

**Yakko**:- It's simple, it's breezy,
- It's fun and it's easy,
- So buy a calculator
- And study this stuff later
- Maybe someday, you can multiply numbers
- Too, three four five...

*Recess!*
