Eight is So Neat!

by John Lennon & Paul McCartney

 

 

Ooh, I really love eight, that Fibonacci cube!

Eight scale notes make octaves I need for a tune.

Spider, scorpion, pints in a gallon:

I just can’t help but love eight -- eight is so neat!

 

Love to play some ‘eight ball’: always I'm behind,

Thinking of umbrellas and big red stop signs.

Octopus, tug-of-war, cylinders in a big car:

I just can’t help but love eight -- eight is so neat!

 

bridge: Eight, you're so neat -- I love you!

Pieces of eight are not enough to show I care.

 

Ooh, I feel like countin corners of a cube--

It’s a fast boat’s number and name of its crew.

Chessboard, jellyfish, a byte is eight bits:

Ancient Greeks and Romans had eight days a week,

Eight days a week, ‘cause eight is so neat!
