three is the magic number
yes it is its a magic number
Somewhere in this ancient mystic trinity
you got 3 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
Takes three legs to make a tripod and to make a table stand
Takes three wheels to make a vehicle called a tricycle
Every triangle has three corners, every triangle has three sides
No more no less you don't have to guess
when its three you can see its 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
whaoo
3 6 9 12 15 18 21 24 27 30
3 6 9
12 15 18
21 24 27
30
now the multiples of three come up three times in each set of ten
in the first ten you get 3 6 9
and in the teens ten you get 12 15 18
and in the twenties you get a 21 24 27
and they go down even on 30
Now multiply backwards from 3 time 10
3 times 10 is 30
3 times 9 is 27
3 times 8 is 24
3 times 7 is 21
3 times 6 is 18
3 times 5 is 15
3 times 4 is 12
and
3 times 3 is 9
3 times 2 is 6
and
3 times 1 is 3 of course
now repeat the whole pack again
(3) 3 6 9
(12)12 15 18
(21) 21 24 27
(30) 30
Now multiply backwards from 3 time 10
3 times 10 is 30
3 times 9 is 27
3 times 8 is 24
3 times 7 is 21
3 times 6 is 18
3 times 5 is 15
3 times 4 is 12
and
3 times 3 is 9
3 times 2 is 6
and
3 times 1 is the magic number
A man and a woman had a little baby, yes they did,
They had three in the family and thats a magic number
