What other songs feature a series of numbers, either in or out of sequence?

I'm thinking of songs like Kiss Off
by the Violent Femmes or Monkey Gone to Heaven
by the Pixies that have a one, two, three, etc. count, but also songs like Masterfade
by Andrew Bird that assign numbers to different things.
"If the green grass is 6 and the soybeans are 7
The junebugs are 8 the weeds and thistles are 11
And if the 1s just hold their place the 0s make a smiley face
When they come floating down from the heavens"
I think a bunch of songs like this would make a fun mix. So what other songs feature a series of numbers?
