First we start with zero, because we ain’t got nothing.
One, two, three- hey, now we got something.
Four, five, six we keep on trucking.
Seven, eight, nine we’re almost at the end of this counting rhyme.
Then comes ten at the very end, until we start again.
(I sang this to my kids a lot when they were little and just starting to learn numbers)
