Ten Little Cowboys

Young little mathematicians need to learn how to count backward. One thing we like to do is sing the numbers backward. So we sing the classic "Ten Little Indians(Native Americans). Well, we don't want to be politically incorrect, and Native Americans doesn't fit rhythmically, so we've picked a group that would not be offended, hopefully, --the cowboys. So we sing forward, and we sing backward. We start from 1 and end a 10, then back again. We can also start at eleven, but it's a mouthful. The greatest part is this version has a "yeah", and a "yee-haw!!!!!!" Now that's FUN, don't tell anyone!
