### The Place Value Rap

Music by Ben Jacobs, Lyrics by Tim Bedley

This is the 4th song on the Rockin to the Standards CD

The digits, the digits, they each have a name

• Memorize ‘em, Understand ‘em is the game
• We start at the decimal, to the left we move
• Each place is 10 times bigger,
• multiply ‘em and we prove…

The digits, the digits, they fit in so tight

• Greater to the left and lesser to the right
• Starting at the decimal, sandwiched in between
• Zeroes hold the empty places, haven’t you seen?
• The digits, the digits, each one means a lot
• You can’t leave ‘em out of the place value spot
• Reading big numbers each comma’s a word
• “Thousand, Million, Billion,” commas, haven’t you heard? Word!
(Place Value has a pattern)
• Ones (1’s), Tens (10’s), Hundreds (100’s),

Comma

• Thousands, Ten Thousands, HundredThousands, Comma
• Millions, Ten Millions, HundredMillions,

Comma

• Billions, Ten Billions, HundredBillions,

Comma

(Decimals)
• Let’s take it to the right of the decimal point
• We’ve got tenths, hundredths, thousandths, ten thousandths
• Smaller than a 1 with a T H
