From School House Rock

E7/D    Cm7/D                Dm7
Now if man had been born with 6 fingers on each hand,
He'd also have
Cm7/D             Dm7                E7/D
12 toes or so the theory goes. Well, with twelve
Digits, I mean
Fingers, he probably would have invented two more

Digits when he
        D/E7               Cm7/D     Dm7
Invented his number system. Then, if he saved the zero

For the end,
E7/D               Cm7/D              Dm7
He could count and multiply by twelve just as easily as
You and I do

By ten.
E7/D                     Cm7/D
Now if man had been born with 6 fingers on each hand,
He'd probably
        E7/D                  Cm7/D
Count: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight,
Nine, dek, el,
           E7/D           Cm7/D
Doh. "Dek" and "el" being two entirely new signs
Meaning ten and
        E7/D           Cm7/D            Dm7
Eleven. Single digits! And his twelve, "doh", would be

Written 1-0.
E7/D              Cm7/D                  Dm7    C7sus4
Get it? That'd be swell, for multiplying by 12.

[Verse 1]
Gm9        Gm6                       FM7
Hey little twelvetoes, I hope you're well.
Fm9     Fm6                   EbM7
Must be some far-flung planet where you dwell.
Em7b5                A7           Dm7
If we were together, you could be my cousin,
Down here we call it a dozen.
Hey little twelvetoes, please come back home.

Interlude Same as Intro
Now if man had been born with 6 fingers on each hand,
His children
Would have 'em too. And when they played hide-and-go-
Seek they'd
Count by sixes fast. And when they studied piano,
They'd do their
Six-finger exercises. And when they went to school,
They'd learn the
Golden rule, and how to multiply by twelve easy: just
Put down a
Zero. But me, I have to learn it the hard way.
Lemme see now:

F7                                      Bb7
One times 12 is twelve, two times 12 is 24.
Three times 12 is 36, four times 12 is 48, five times
12 is 60.

Six times 12 is 72, seven times 12 is 84.
Bb7                                         C7
Eight times 12 is 96, nine times 12 is 108, ten times
12 is 120.
F7                                                 D7
Eleven times 12 is 132, and 12 times 12 is 144. WOW!

[Verse 2]
Gm9                   Gm6            FM7
Hey little twelvetoes, I hope you're thriving.
Fm9            Fm6                     EbMaj7
Some of us ten-toed folks are still surviving.
Em7b5                  A7       Dm7
If you help me with my twelves, I'll help you with your

And we could all be friends.
A7                        Dm7
