Figure Eight
Music and Lyrics by Bob Dorough
Cm                        C#
Figure eight as double four,
          G                Cm
Figure four as half of eight.
                               C#
If you skate, you would be great
              G               Cm 
If you could make a figure eight
           Fm               G             Cm 
That's a circle that turns 'round upon itself.
Cm                            C#
One times eight is two times four.
           G                 Cm
Four times four is two times eight.
                       C#
If you skate upon thin ice, 
         G                   Cm  
You'd be wise if you thought twice
Fm              G              Cm
Before you made another single move.
C                  G/B   [ch]Gm/Bb[/ch]               F/A
One times eight is eight, two times eight is 16,
Fm/Ab               C/G  [ch]Am6/F#[/ch]              Fm6
Three times eight is 24, four times eight is 32,
    C/E        Cdim    Dm7  G    C
And five times eight is 40, you know.
C                  G/B [ch]Gm/Bb[/ch]                F/A
Six times eight is 48, seven times eight is 56,
Fm/Ab               C/G  [ch]Am6/F#[/ch]              Fm6
Eight times eight is 64, nine times eight is 72,
    C/E        Cdim    Dm7  G    C
And ten times eight is 80, that's true.
Em                     F      D7/F#                 G
Eleven times eight is 88, and twelve times eight is 96.
               D   
Now, here's a chance to get off
         G    
On your new math tricks.
           D          
'Cause twelve times eight is the same as 
           G
Ten times eight plus two times eight
                  G7
80 plus 16 ... ninety-six!
C                  G/B   [ch]Gm/Bb[/ch]               F/A
One times eight is eight, two times eight is 16,
Fm/Ab               C/G  [ch]Am6/F#[/ch]              Fm6
Three times eight is 24, four times eight is 32,
    C/E        Cdim    Dm7  G    C
And five times eight is 40, you know.
Cm                        C#
Figure eight as double four,
          G                Cm
Figure four as half of eight.
                               C#
If you skate, you would be great
              G               Cm 
If you could make a figure eight
           Fm               G             Cm 
That's a circle that turns 'round upon itself.
Ab                                        Fm           C
Place it on its side and it's a symbol meaning         Infinity...
