Rodger Miller: Now the first thing I need is some random number lets say um...
between 20 and 22.
Somebody in crowd: 21!!!
Rodger Miller: ok lets try 21 good number.

well take 21 subtract 9
12 litle childeren standing in line
from the take 2 and that leaves you 10
take away 8 and you got 2 again

(Refrain)
You got 2 again
You got 2 again
you used to love me once but now you got 2 again
(repeat 1x)

Rodger Miller: see now that wasnt so hard, let try it again only this time lets
try a number between, say, 12 and ummm oh how about 14.
Simbody in crod: 13!!!!
Rodger Miller: ok 13, mmmmmmmmmmm, 13 (Miller pretends to be making up the
words for a verse just humming and stuff, playing around with the adiance)

13 you multiply by 1
you still got 13 but wasnt that fun
you take the same 13 you multiply by 2
26 hours the trains over due

(Refrain)
8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3,
2 happy people divided by 1
leaves nuthing, nuthing,
none

(refrain)
