Line ‘em Up Lyrics

 

Line ‘em up by Mister C

Chorus

Lessons like this….You’ve never heard before

You’re in store, for sure, to learn something more

The moment you walk  through my classroom doors

like everyone else you’ll be screaming for more

Your chance, at last, to figure it out

A decimal…..

And what it’s really about

a little dot, so teenie,  makes you scream and shout

cuz when it’s mixed in —we all freak out

talking decimals you’re gonna see the point

when you know these things, you’ll never disappoint

it’s simple… easy….  tell it to you straight

if they’re not line up, you’ll make mistakes

so shift em to the left

maybe  shift em to the right

it doesn’t really matter which way you have to shift ‘em

get ‘em lined up to get it right

 

Chorus

 

so let’s first understand

a decimal, the point…we need to comprehend

cuz  when you think about a  decimal

it’s breaking numbers into parts and wholes

 

That’s right it’s parts and whole

the basic facts you already know

To the left you have your ones,

tens, hundreds and more

To right one digit …a tenth

and then we have a hundredth

And sliding one more yes yes,

you’ll find yourself the thousanth

 

so shift em to the left

maybe  shift em to the right

it doesn’t really matter which way you have to shift ‘em

get ‘em lined up to get it right

 

Chorus

 

so shift em to the left

maybe  shift em to the right

it doesn’t really matter which way you have to shift ‘em

get ‘em lined up to get it right

 

so shift em to the left

maybe  shift em to the right

it doesn’t really matter which way you have to shift ‘em

get ‘em lined up to get it right

 

so shift em to the left

maybe  shift em to the right

it doesn’t really matter which way you have to shift ‘em

get ‘em lined up to get it right
