learn to place commas in numbers!

LYRICS:

There's a comma that you need in a number,
If your number has more than 3,

DIGITS!!!

There's a comma that you need in a number,
To make your number easy to read!

HIT IT!!!

Say 1-2-3, POW!
The comma goes after three,
Starting from the right,
Moving to the left,
It's really very easy you see...

Say bop-bop-bop BANG!
The comma goes after 3,
Starting from the right,
Moving to the left,
It's really very easy you see...

1-2-3,
Thousands
1-2-3,
Millions
Every three digits,
That's how commas go!
1-2-3,
Thousands
1-2-3,
Millions
Every three digits,
That's how commas go!

The first comma separates,
The hundreds from the thousands,
It makes them easy to read...
The second comma separates,
The thousands from the millions,
After 6 digits you see!

Say bop-bop bop BANG!
The comma goes after 3,
Starting from the right,
Moving to the left,
It's really very easy you see...

Say 1-2-3, POW!
The comma goes after three,
Starting from the right,
Moving to the left,
It's really very easy you see...

1-2-3,
Thousands
1-2-3,
Millions
Every three digits,
That's how commas go!
1-2-3,
Thousands
1-2-3,
Millions
Every three digits,
That's how commas go!

All you gotta' know,
To put the commas in a number
Is to put them after each three,
Then you'll be reading,
The numbers that you're finding,
Give it a try and you'll see...

Say bop-bop-bop BANG!
The comma goes after 3,
Starting from the right,
Moving to the left,
It's really very easy you see...

Say 1-2-3, POW!
The comma goes after three,
Starting from the right,
Moving to the left,
It's really very easy you see...

1-2-3,
Thousands
1-2-3,
Millions
Every three digits,
That's how commas go!
1-2-3,
Thousands
1-2-3,
Millions
Every three digits,
That's how commas go!

Say bop-bop-bop BANG!
The comma goes after 3!

Say bang-bang-bang BOP!
The comma goes after 3!

Say 1-2-3, POW!
The comma goes after 3!

Say 1-2-3, POW!
The comma goes after 3!
