skip count by 5!

Lyrics:

If you wanna’ count by 5’s,
And sometimes I think you might,
Then this funny little 5’s trick,
Helps you count them right!

If a number ends with 0,
If a number ends with 5,
Then you have to say that number,
When you count by 5!

5, 10, 15, 20,
25, 30, 35, 40,
45, 50, 55, 60,
They end with 0 or they end with a 5…

(now the fast ones)
5, 10, 15, 20,
25, 30, 35, 40,
45, 50, 55, 60,
They end with 0 or a 5…
65, 70, 75, 80,
85, 90, 95, 100,
When you skip, skip count,
Count by 5!
They end with 0 or a 5…

Well I saved a stack of nickels,
There were 12 there in my pile,
How much money did I have?
Let me think for a while…
If you wanna’ count your nickels,
And I really think you might,
Counting nickels up by 5’s,

5, 10, 15, 20,
25, 30, 35, 40,
45, 50, 55, 60,
They end with a zero or they end with 5…

(now the fast ones)
5, 10, 15, 20,
25, 30, 35, 40,|
45, 50, 55, 60,
They end with a zero or a 5…

10 students in my math class,
Raised their left hands up so high,
Now how many left hand fingers,
Were there pointing to the sky?
Well 5 fingers on each left hand,
So I’d have to count by 5,
Just like I did with  nickels,
So let’s count by 5!

5, 10, 15, 20,
25, 30, 35, 40,
45, 50, 55 60,
They end with a 0, or they end with a 5,

If you wanna’ count by 5’s,
And sometimes I think you might,
Then this funny little 5’s trick,
Helps you count them right!
If a number ends with 0,
If a number ends with 5,
Then you have to say that number,
When you count by 5!

5, 10, 15, 20,
25, 30, 35, 40,|
45, 50, 55, 60,
They end with a zero or a 5…
65, 70, 75, 80,
85, 90, 95, 100,
When you skip, skip count,
Count by 5!
They end with 0 or a 5…
