Subtraction Song 🟨 Math Music for Kids

The "Subtraction Song" teaches children about subtraction problems with numbers from 1 - 10. Let's learn math with music!

“Subtraction Song” Lyrics

Elliot was building a castle.

He started with the door.   

He had five blocks, 

but suddenly one went missing.

5-1 = 4

 

Who stole the missing block?

Who could it be?

Maybe it was Lisa? 

But she said,

“No, it wasn’t me!”

 

Elliot started to build a tower.

He wanted to make it green.

He had four blocks, 

but suddenly one went missing.

4-1 = 3

 

Who stole the missing blocks?

Who could it be?

Maybe it was Billy?  

But he said,

“No, it wasn’t me!”

 

Elliot decided to add a roof.

He wanted to make it blue.

He had three blocks, 

but suddenly one went missing.

3-1 = 2 

 

Who stole the missing blocks?

Who could it be?

Maybe it was Baby Bot? 

But he said,

“No, it wasn’t me!”

 

Elliot was getting suspicious.

But he was still having fun!

He had two blocks left, 

but suddenly one went missing.

2-1 = 1

 

Who stole the missing blocks?

Who could it be?

Maybe it was Cowy? 

And she said,

“Yes! It was me!”
