Biz Markie – Three Is The Magic Number lyrics

Three is a magic number
Yes it is, it's a magic number
Somewhere in that ancient mystic trinity
You'll 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
And it takes three wheels to make a vehicle called a tricycle
And 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
And they had three in the family
That's a magic number

Three, six, nine
Twelve, fifteen, eighteen
Twenty-one, twenty-four, twenty-seven
Thirty

Three, six, nine
Twelve, fifteen, eighteen
Twenty-one, twenty-four, twenty-seven
Thirty

Now the multiples of three come up three times in each set of ten
In the first ten you get three, six, nine
And in the teens ten it's twelve, fifteen and eighteen
And in the twenties you get a twenty-one, twenty-four, twenty-seven
And it comes out even at thirty
Now multiply backwards from three times ten
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 dig the pattern once more)

Three, six, nine
Twelve, fifteen, eighteen
Twenty-one, twenty-four, twenty-seven
Thirty

Yeah thirty, now multiply from ten backwards

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
