“Somewhere in that ancient mystic trinity
You’ll get three
As a magic number”.

Lyrics …

Three is a magic number
ya it is, it’s a magic number
Somewhere in that ancient mystic trinity
You’ll get three
As a magic number
The past, the present, the future,
Faith, and hope, and charity,
the heart, the brain, the body,
will give you three,
it’s a magic number

It takes three legs to make a tripod or to make a table stand,
and it takes three wheels to make a vehicle called a tricycle
And every triangle has three corners,
every triangle has three sides,
no more, no less,
you don’t have to guess
that it’s three
can’t you see?
it’s a magic number

A man and a woman had a little baby
yeah they did
and there were three in the family
and that’s a magic number

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

Now multiply backwards from 3×10
3×10 is 30
3×9 is 27
3×8 is 24
3×7 is 21
3×6 is 18
3×5 is 15
3×4 is 12
and 3×3 is 9
and 3×2 is 6
and 3×1 is 3 of course
(Now dig the pattern once more!)

3, 6, 9,
12, 15, 18
Oh yeah

3×10 is 30
3×9 is 27
3×8 is 24
3×7 is 21
3×6 is 18
3×5 is 15
3×4 is 12
and 3×3 is 9
and 3×2 is 6
and 3×1
What is it?
3

A man and a woman had a little baby
there were three in the family
and that’s a magic number
