Three is a Magic Number

Three is a magic number,
Yes it is, it's a magic number.
Somewhere in the ancient, mystic trinity
You get three as a magic number.

The past and the present and the future.
Faith and Hope and Charity,
The heart and the brain and the body,
Give you three as a magic number.

It takes three legs to make a tripod
Or to make a table stand.
It takes three wheels to make a vehicle
Called a tricycle.

Every triangle has three corners,
Every triangle has three sides,
No more, no less.
You don't have to guess.
When it's three, you can see
It's a magic number.

A man and a woman had a little baby,
Yes, they did.
They had three in the family,
And that's a magic number.

3-6-9, 12-15-18, 21-24-27, 30.
3-6-9, 12-15-18, 21-24-27, 30.

Now the multiples of three
come up three times in each set of 10.
In the first 10 you get 3,6,9
and in the teens 10 it's 12,15 and 18
and in the twenties you get a 21,24,27
and it comes out even on 30.(yeah)

Now multiply backwards from 3 x 10:
3 x 10 is 30, 3 x 9 is 27, 3 x 8 is 24, 3 x 7 is 21,
3 x 6 is 18, 3 x 5 is 15, 3 x 4 is 12,
And 3 x 3 is 9, and 3 x 2 is 6,
And 3 x 1 is 3 of course.

Now dig the pattern once more:
3....3-6-9
12...12-15-18
21...21-24-27...30

Now multiply from 10 backwards:
3 x 10 is 30 (Keep going), 3 x 9 is 27, 3 x 8 is 24,
3 x 7 is 21, 3 x 6 is 18, 3 X 5 is 15, 3 x 4 is 12,
And 3 x 3 is 9, and 3 X 2 is 6.
And 3 x 1 ...
What is it?!
Three!
Yeah. That's a magic number.

A man and a woman had a little baby,
Yes, they did.
They had three in the family,
That's a magic number.
