Three Is a Magic Number

Important Note: Don't read too much into this post. The song was in my head and I thought it would be fun to write it down. There are no Little Gneeches on the way or anything of that sort.

Three is a magic number
Yes it is, it's a magic number
Somewhere in the ancient, mystic trinity
You get three
as a magic number

The past and the present and the future
Faith and Hope and Charity
The heart and the brain and the body
Give you three
as a magic number

It takes three legs to make a tripod
or to make a table stand
It takes three wheels to make a ve-hicle
called a tricycle

Every triangle has three corners
Every triangle has three sides
No more, no less
You don't have to guess
When it's three you can see
It's a magic number

A man and a woman had a little baby
Yes, they did
They had three in the family,
and that's a magic number

Three-six-nine
twelve-fifteen-eighteen
twenty-one, twenty-four, twenty-seven
thirty

Three times ten is thirty
three times nine is twenty-seven
three times eight is twenty-four
three times seven is twenty-one
three times six is eighteen
three times five is fifteen
three times four is twelve, and
three times three is nine, and
three times two is six
And three times one is three of course

Now take the pattern once more:
Three! (Three-six-nine)
Twelve! (Twelve-fifteen-eighteen)
Twenty-one! (Twenty-one, twenty-four, twenty-seven)
Thirty!

Three times ten is thirty
three times nine is twenty-seven
three times eight is twenty-four
three times seven is twenty-one
three times six is eighteen
three times five is fifteen
three times four is twelve, and
three times three is nine, and
three times two is six
And three times one — what is it?
Three!
Yeah, that's a magic number

A man and a woman had a little baby
Yes, they did
They had three in the family
That's a magic number
