NANCY STEWART MEASUREMENT SONG LYRICS

Numbers tell the story of how much, how long, how far
So no matter where you go you'll know just where you are
12 inches to one foot and there are 3 feet to one yard
Once you know these measurements, it's really not so hard
If I tell you when you were 2 you were 31 inches tall
You will know how big you were, 'cause I measured it on the wall
12 inches to one foot and there are 3 feet to one yard
Once you know these measurements it's really not so hard
If your mother wants to make a chocolate cake for you
You can help by getting out the measuring cups and spoons
3 teaspoons to one tablespoon, 16 tablespoons to one cup
2 cups to one pint, 4 cups to a quart, now eat the cake up!
If I say that we can play outside for an hour or two
You can look at the clock and you will know when we are through
60 seconds to one minute, 60 minutes to an hour too
24 hours in one day, and that's a lot of time to you!
Using numbers scientists keep track of all they do
They write it down, and soon they've found that they've learned a thing or two
12 inches to a foot, and there are 3 feet to one yard
Once you know the measurements, it's really not so hard
