Lyrics:

Here’s a song for you and me,
Shows us how to count by 3,
Hop two numbers at a time,
Check it on the number line…

3-6-9-12-15-18,
21-24-27,
Brings us to 30…
3-6-9-12-15-18,
21-24-27,
Brings us to 30…

Hop a number,
Skip a number,
Hop and skip those numbers now,
3 then 6…
Skip  4 and 5…
Hop a number,
Skip a number,
Hop and skip those numbers now
6 then 9,
Skip 7, 8 …

3-6-9-12-15-18,
21-24-27,
Brings us to 30…
3-6-9-12-15-18,
21-24-27,
Brings us to 30…
  
What are things we count by three?
Let us think and let us see…
What are things we count by three?
Let us think and let us see…

A tricycle, that’s got 3 wheels,
3 blind mice eat cheese for meals,
A tricycle, that’s got 3 wheels,
3 blind mice eat cheese for meals,

Things in 3 just can’t be beat,
A yards the length of 3 feet…
Things in 3 just can’t be beat,
A yard’s the length of 3 feet…

Triangles made of 3 sides each,
Count by three is what we’ll teach!
Triangles made of 3 sides each,
Count by three is what we’ll teach!

3-6-9-12-15-18,
21-24-27,
Brings us to 30…
3-6-9-12-15-18,
21-24-27,
Brings us to 30…
