Lyrics:

You got this problem inside your class

Let’s take a look, and break it down, don’t go to fast

All though my classroom, all through my school

We’re learning math, no limit, when we learn the rules

We’ve got to just break down this problem

Got to learn this pro-per-ty

You’ve got addition or subtraction, here we go

there’s an ex-pres-sion on the outside

(ya) Got those two pa-ren-the-ses

I know that you can do this problem, now you know

That you multiply, when things are real close

Each thing inside, is where the outside goes

To each term, you will draw an arr-ow

And Multiply in, Multiply in, Multiply in

Draw the lines and multiply, you just dis-tri-bute

Add exponents when you multiply

Dis-tri-bute, come on

Product outside, Sum inside

You just dis-tri-bute, come on

Multiplying what’s inside, you dis-tri-bute (You just dis-tri-bute)

You just dis-tri-bute, (You just dis-tri-bute)

You just dis-tri-bute, come on

Oooh, here’s one more difficult

There’s much more there, two expressions look at it all

Now just don’t panic, don’t lose your cool

You’ll get it down, don’t worry, focus on the rules

We’ve got to just break down this problem

Got to learn this pro-per-ty

Two groups of adding or subtracting, here we go

Now there’s a left side and a right side,

Two sets of pa-ren-the-ses

I know that you can do this problem, now you know

That you multiply, when things are real close

Terms on the left, just distribute all those

From each term, draw a set of arr-ows

And Multiply in, Multiply in, Multiply in

Draw the lines and multiply, you just dis-tri-bute, yea

Add exponents when you multiply

Dis-tri-bute, come on

Check to see if things combine

Once you dis-tri-bute, yea

Multiplying what’s inside, you dis-tri-bute (You just dis-tri-bute)

You just dis-tri-bute (You just dis-tri-bute)

You just dis-tri-bute (You just dis-tri-bute)

You just dis-tri-bute (You just dis-tri-bute)

You dis-tri-bute, come on

Distribute

Distribute

Distribute

Distribute

(You just distribute)

Draw the lines and multiply, you just dis-tri-bute, yea

Add exponents when you multiply

dis-tri-bute

Check to see if things combine

Once you dis-tri-bute, yea

Multiplying what’s inside, you distribute

Everybody sing

Draw the arrows, multiply in (you just distribute)

Draw the arrows, multiply in (you just distribute)

Don’t forget about combining (once you distribute)

Draw the arrows, multiply in

Break it down

Draw the arrows, multiply in (You just distribute)

Don’t forget about combining, come on
