# “6” Times Table

**“Six Skinny Bug Legs”** lyrics

Six legs, six legs, skinny little bug legs

Wiggling on every bug

Six legs, six legs, skinny little bug legs

Are what keeps a bug on the run

With one little bug it is easy to see

That when you've got six legs, you've got six feet

So if you count up the legs on one bug you'll get 6

Since 1x6=6

One little bug has 6 skinny legs

1x6=6

When two bugs first meet they like to stare

At the number of legs that they share

If you count up the legs on two bugs you'll get 12

Since 2x6=12

Two little bugs have 12 skinny legs

2x6=12

Three bugs make you dizzy

When you're counting their legs

They've got six more than a carton of eggs

If you count them up slowly, you'll get to 18

Cause 3x6 is 18

Three little bugs have 18 legs

3x6 is 18

When four get together, they'll start out to dance

And their wiggly legs will put you under a trance

If you count them out loud, you'll say "24"

Since 4x6 is 24

Four little bugs with 24 legs

4x6 is 24

Five bugs count up just as easily as four

All the legs of the four plus another six more

If you count up the legs on five bugs you'll get 30

Since 5x6=30

5 sets of bugs with 6 legs apiece

Equals 30 skinny legs (5x6=30)

Six is a magical number for bugs

It's the number of legs that they use when they run

That makes 36 legs on a half dozen bugs

Since 6x6 is 36

Six little bugs have 36 legs

6x6 is 36

Seven bugs make lots of noise when they walk

With their 42 feet, unless they're wearing their socks

If you count the six legs on each seven

You'll see 7x6 is 42

7 little bugs will have 42 legs

7x6 is 42

Bug, bug, bug, bug, bug, bug, bug,

Eight sets of legs underneath the rug

That's 48 legs, if you count every one

Since 8x6 is 48

Eight bugs have 48 legs

8x6 is 48

Counting the legs on 9 bugs takes time

They are wiggling in and wiggling out of line

If you keep counting legs you will hit 54

Since 9x6 is 54

Nine bugs have 54 skinny legs

9x6 is 54

Skinny bug legs help you multiply

6, 12, 18 are wiggling by

24, 30, 36, 42,

48, 54 squished under my shoe

Skinny bug legs help you multiply

6, 12, 18 are wiggling by

24, 30, 36, 42,

48, 54 squished under my shoe

Skinny bug legs help you multiply

6, 12, 18 are wiggling by

24, 30, 36, 42,

48, 54 squished under my shoe
