Lyrics & Music by: Bob Dorough
Performed by: Bob Dorough
Now everybody try to find a good hiding place.
This ol' tree is gonna be the base.
I'm gonna close my eyes and hide my face
and count to a hundred by fives.
Ready? Go!
5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50,
55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, 100.
Ready or not, here I come.
Apple, peaches, pumpkin pie.
Who's not ready, holler "I"-("I")
Oh, all right, I'll count it again,
But you better get hid, kid.
Here we go.
5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70,
75, 80, 85, 90, 95,100,105,110,115,120. There!
A bushel of wheat and a bushel o' rye,
Who's not hid, holler "I."
'Twenty nickels makes a dollar!
I didn't hear anybody holler.
5 x 20 is 100,
Everybody got to be hid.
All eyes open, here I come, whew!
Multiplyin' by five is a little like countin' by five. In
fact, if you counted along on your fingers as you
counted out loud by fives, your fingers would tell
you how many fives you've got.
OK let's count together, now.
Count on your fingers ...
One finger for each count out loud ...
Get set. Ready? Go!
5, 10, 15, 20-STOP!
Twenty.
You got four fingers, see, that means 4 x 5 is 20.
Let's try another one.
Get set. Ready? Go!
5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35-STOP!
Thirty-five?
Seven fingers ... that's right,
7 x 5 is 35.
OK, let's try a longer one. Now when you run out of
fingers at 50 -you see, because 10 x 5 is 50-then start
over with the same fingers and remember that you
owe 10 ... Get set. Ready? Go!
5, 10, 1 5, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60-STOP!
Ten and two, right?
That's twelve fingers.
And 12 x 5 is 60.
See how it works?
Now you may notice that if you multiply five by an
even number, your product will end in zero; and if
you multiply five by an odd number, your product will
end in five.
OK, now let's do one more game of counting by fives
on our fingers.
This is a long one.
Keep going.
Get set. Ready? Go!
5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50,
55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85-STOP!
Eighty-five. Seventeen fingers.
Look at that boV with seventeen fingers stickin' up.
How do you do that, kid?
Anyway, 5 x 17 is 85.
You see, that's three fives short of loo. if you had 3
more nickels, 15 cents, and added the 15 to 85, you'd
get 100, right?
'Cause 5 X 20 is 100.
Everybody got to be hid!
It's 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50,
55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, 1 00.
Ready or not,
Here I come!
