# “5” Times Table

**“Five Holes In My Head”** lyrics

I like the number five

It reminds me of the holes in my head

When I've got to multiply

I think about the holes in my head

(Two ears, two nostrils and one mouth equals five holes)

Since I've got one head

And it just has five

Holes that help me figure out

How to multiply by five

(1 times 5 is 5, 1 times 5 is 5)

I've got a best friend named Ed

He's got 5 holes in his head

Whenever the two of us get together

There are 10 holes in 2 heads

(2 times 5 is ten, 2 times 5 is ten)

I've got a brother named Fred

With 5 holes in his head

When me and Ed and Fred get together

There are 15 holes in 3 heads

(3 times 5 is fifteen, 3 times 5 is fifteen)

(This is easier than I thought; I'm ready to learn more)

I've got a buddy named Jed

He's got 5 holes in his head

When we're all just hanging out counting holes

There are 20 holes in 4 heads

(4 times 5 is 20, 4 times 5 is 20)

It's fun to count holes in the head

So we called up a guy named Red

When he stands in our line, five at a time

We've got 25 holes in 5 heads

(5 times 5 is 25, 5 times 5 is 25)

My daddy's name is Ted

We have the same looking head

When he joins our little party and he isn't tardy

We've got 30 holes in 6 heads

(6 times 5 is 30, 6 times 5 is 30)

(I'm very comfortable with this concept; please tell me more)

The dreadlocks on his head

Covered up the 5 holes of Ned

But we know he's got them and when they're all counted

35 holes in 7 heads

(7 times 5 is 35, 7 times 5 is 35)

Don't believe everything you've read

Aunty Mildred said

The eight of us all agreed

So we've got 40 holes in 8 heads

(8 times 5 is 40, 8 times 5 is 40)

Hey, everyone, it's Winstead

Let's play baseball instead

If you count the holes on our starting 9

You've got 45 holes in 9 heads

(9 times 5 is 45, 9 times 5 is 45)

Our coach's name is Grover

We had to get him out of bed

We needed someone in charge of multiplying

All the holes in 10 heads

(10 times 5 is 50, 10 times 5 is 50)

When you multiply by five

The answers that you get

Will end in fives or tens

5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45

We get it!

Now it's time for you to try to multiply

Don't be shy with five, my friends

5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45

50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, etc, fade
