Seven, We are seven, we’re not 16, 20, 44 or 11

And no matter how you look at us, we say

We will always be the number before eight!

Seven! Goldfish seven! 1,2,3,4,5,6 Count them, there are seven!

Even though they have some fancy tricks, They will always be the number after SIIIIIXXX

(seven, seven, seven, seven, aaahh)
