LYRICS

My mom got me a dog,

I can’t remember where or when,

But the coolest thing about him,

His name was count by ten!

I asked him to count by 5s,

I asked him to count by 2’s,

He looked at me and shook his head,

He flat out refused!

I count by tens, I count by tens,

I only count by tens!

I count by tens, I count by tens,

I only count by tens like this!

10, 20, 30, 40, 50,

60, 70, 80, 90,

And then came 100,

That’s what my doggy done did,

And now he’s known as the counting kid!

My dog would only count by tens,

He’d count by tens all day!

I told him count by 2’s,

I told him count by 5’s,

And all he said was no how no way!

Bought my dog 5 pairs of shoes,

Shoes I knew he’d love to chew,

I told him to count how many shoes,

He should use skip count by 2s,

2-4-6-8,

2-4-6-8-10,

But he wouldn’t do it,

No my dog wouldn’t do it,

He reminded me again…

My dog would only count by tens,

He’d count by tens all day!

I told him count by 2’s,

I told him count by 5’s,

And all he said was no how no way!

I count by tens, I count by tens,

I only count by tens!

I count by tens, I count by tens,

I only count by tens like this!

10, 20, 30, 40, 50,

60, 70, 80, 90,

And then came 100,

That’s what my doggy done did,

And now he’s known as the counting kid!

I gave my dog some saved up nickels,

To buy things at the store,

I told him nickels count by 5’s,

If he wanted to be sure…

5-10-15-20

5-10-15-20

But he wouldn’t do it,

No my dog wouldn’t do it

He just wouldn’t count that money!

My Dog would only count by tens,

He’d count by tens all day!

I told him count by 2’s,

I told him count by 5’s,

And all he said was no how no way!

I count by tens, I count by tens,

I only count by tens!

I count by tens, I count by tens,

I only count by tens like this!

10, 20, 30, 40, 50,

60, 70, 80, 90,

And then came 100,

That’s what my doggy done did,

And now he’s known as the counting kid!

I gave my dog some saved up dimes,

To buy things at the store,

I told him dimes count by 10’s,

If he wanted to be sure…

I said its,

10-20-30-40

10-20-30-40

He began to smile,

For a long-long while,

Counting by tens is just my style!

My Dog would only count by tens,

He’d count by tens all day!

I told him count by 2’s,

I told him count by 5’s,

And all he said was no how no way!

I count by tens, I count by tens

I only count by tens!

I count by tens, I count by tens

I only count by tens like this!

60, 70, 80, 90,

And then came 100,

That’s what my doggy done did,

And now he’s known as the counting kid!
