Lyrics

Two and two are four
Four and four are eight
That's all you have
On your business-like mind

Two?and?two are four
Four?and four are eight
How can you?be
So blind?

(Two and two are four)
(Four and four are eight)
(Eight and eight are sixteen)
(Sixteen and sixteen are thirty-two)

Inch worm, inch worm (Two and two are four)
Measuring the marigolds (Four and four are eight)
You and your arithmetic (Eight and eight are sixteen)
You'll probably go far (Sixteen and sixteen are thirty-two)

Inch worm, inch worm (Two and two are four)
Measuring the marigolds (Four and four are eight)
Seems to me you'd stop and see (Eight and eight are sixteen)
How beautiful they are (Sixteen and sixteen are thirty-two)

Inch worm, inch worm
Measuring the marigolds
Seems to me you'd stop and see
How beautiful they are
