Love and Arithmetic


He was teaching her Arithmetic

He said it was his mission,

He kissed her once, he kissed her twice

And said "Now that's Addition"


And so he added smack to smack,

With joyful satisfaction

Then he took some of them back.

And said "Now that's Subtraction"


And so they sat there side by side

In mutual admiration,

They kissed each other ten times ten

He said "That's Multiplication"
