I met a little boy from outer space,

with a big purple cape and a little green face.

He’s the smartest boy I ever did meet,

And he told me his name was count EZ.

 

He said I collect sevens I put them in a box,

I hide them in a drawer with my marbles and my socks.

I love collecting sevens they give me lots of luck.

I give them lots of rides in my tractor and my truck.

Bum ba dum ba dum ba dum da

 

I can make a seven from a 3 and a 4

They stack real neatly and they are easy to store.

I love counting sevens they give me lots of luck.

I give them lots of rides in my tractor and my truck.

Bum ba dum bad um bad um
