Metric System Song Lyrics:

One thousand – KILO!
One hundred - HECTO!
Ten is decameters.

One tenth – DECI!
One hundredth – CENTI!
One thousandth is millimeters.

One decameter is ten meters.
One hectometer is one hundred meters.
One kilometer is one thousand meters,
and here is how we remember:

One thousand – KILO!
One hundred - HECTO!
Ten is decameters.

One tenth – DECI!
One hundredth – CENTI!
One thousandth is millimeters.

One decimeter’s one tenth of a meter.
One hundredth is a centimeter.
One millimeter’s one thousandth of a meter,
and here is how we remember:

One thousand – KILO!
One hundred - HECTO!
Ten is decameters.

One tenth – DECI!
One hundredth – CENTI!
One thousandth is millimeters.
