# “8” Times Table

**“Eight Hours a Day”** lyrics

Eight hours a day

He worked eight hours a day

Scooping Ice Cream

And getting paid

He ate ice cream all day

On the first day

He had worked 8 hours (tried the chocolate!)

1 x 8 is 8, 1 x 8 is 8

By the second day

He had worked 16 hours (pistachio!)

2 x 8 is 16, 2 x 8 is 16

By the third day

He had worked 24 hours (mint was really good!)

3 x 8 is 24, 3 x 8 is 24

Eight hours a day

He worked eight hours a day

Scooping Ice Cream

And getting paid

He ate ice cream all day

By the 4th day

He had worked 32 hours (cookies and cream!)

4 x 8 is 32, 4 x 8 is 32

By the 5th day

He had worked 40 hours (pink bubble gum!)

5 x 8 is 40, 5 x 8 is 40

By the 6th day

He had worked 48 hours (rainbow sherbet)

6 x 8 is 48, 6 x 8 is 48

Eight hours a day

He worked eight hours a day

Scooping Ice Cream

And getting paid

He ate ice cream all day

We counted 8 16 and 24

Hours that he's worked at the ice cream store

32, 40, 48, 56, 64 and 72

(When I get to 80

They say they're gonna pay me

I hope they do it soon I think I'm gonna explode!)

By the 7th day

He had worked 56 hours (butter pecan!)

7 x 8 is 56, 7 x 8 is 56

By the 8th day

He had worked 64 hours (double chocolate chip!)

8 x 8 is 64, 8 x 8 is 64

By the 9th day

He'd worked 72 hours (banana split)

9 x 8 is 72, 9 x 8 is 72

On the 10th day

His boss was missing lots of ice cream...

(So he came looking for me

He saw my big belly

Everyone could tell it was me

I'm no longer his employee)
