# Cosmo’s Dreamy Number Slumber

*By Steve Cleverley/Sanj Sen*

Hello. Tonight we’re visiting a very smart little Moshling called Cosmo, a Mini Moshulator who just loves numbers… adding, subtracting, dividing, multiplying and dreaming. So snuggle down, cosy up, close your eyes and relax…

*One, two, three, four, five, six, seven*

*Eight, nine, ten, and then eleven,*

*Counting really makes you wonder*

*Cosmo’s dreamy number slumber*

One, two, three, four

Counting often makes you snore

Five, six, seven, eight

Some Moshlings love to calculate

One of them is Cosmo, a Mini Moshulator

A little chap whose mind is filled with numbers, facts and data

See Cosmo likes arithmetic, and doing lots of sums

He practices them constantly, especially when night comes

Adding and subtracting, then lots of long division

Cosmo loves his numbers even more than television

But best of all, focussing on numbers helps him sleep

It really is a wonderfully reliable technique

*One, two, three, four, five, six, seven*

*Eight, nine, ten, and then eleven,*

*Counting really makes you wonder*

*Cosmo’s dreamy number slumber*

Obviously, all this math affects young Cosmo’s dreams

It shapes their quirky stories, and impacts on their themes

So most nights Cosmo finds himself in strange worlds filled with numbers

And usually they help him with his logarithmic slumbers

Right now Cosmo’s drifting off, thinking of subtraction

He finds it calms him down, providing just the right distraction

Taking three from twenty-five and then subtracting nine

Then letting the thirteen that’s left dissolve inside his mind

Before he knows it, Cosmo’s in a dream like none before

For now that thirteen’s morphed into the number thirty-four

He must have added twenty-one, somewhere down the line

Not that Cosmo’s bothered, for tonight’s dream looks sublime

*One, two, three, four, five, six, seven*

*Eight, nine, ten, and then eleven,*

*Counting really makes you wonder*

*Cosmo’s dreamy number slumber*

Cosmos’s floating in the sky, past clouds shaped just like numbers

*“Is this real?”* he muses, *“Or just a dream?” *he wonders?

As the clouds begin to clear, Cosmo gazes down

And spots a most extraordinary trigonomic town

The buildings are triangular, arranged in twos and threes

And everything is angled, at varying degrees

Cosmo swoops towards the ground, truly lost for words

Distracted by a passing flock of algebraic birds

He lands on an isosceles that’s sitting on a square

Its sides are totally equal so they make a perfect pair

Cosmo then sees several numbers walking down the street

A bunch of fives and several twos, with little arms and feet

*One, two, three, four, five, six, seven*

*Eight, nine, ten, and then eleven,*

*Counting really makes you wonder*

*Cosmo’s dreamy number slumber*

Cosmo’s dream now begins to take a funny turn

For the numbers start to talk to him, it seems they want to learn

*“Hello there, can you tell us, if two plus two is three?”*

Asks the leader of the bunch of fives, who seem to disagree

*“Two and two is four!”* says Cosmo, *“Surely you can add?”*

*“Not really” *says the biggest five, *“Our math is pretty bad…*

*This town is full of numbers, but none of us can count*

*We know a little here and there, but not a great amount”*

*“I see”* says Cosmo, then he asks, *“Any idea why?”*

“*Of course” *the five replies, “W*e fall asleep each time we try”*

*“Well, sums can make you sleepy, of that I do agree”*

Says Cosmo just before he adds, *“But you can count on me” *

*One, two, three, four, five, six, seven*

*Eight, nine, ten, and then eleven,*

*Counting really makes you wonder*

*Cosmo’s dreamy number slumber*

Cosmo tells his numbery friends that he’s a Moshulator

A cross between a Moshling and a fancy calculator

*“Give me any problem and I’ll answer in a flash*

*From basic sums and algebra to counting piles of cash*

*“I’ll calculate percentages and tell you the square root…*

*Of any oobla doobla plant or random Moshi fruit”*

The numbers smile and then begin to ask him lot of questions

So Cosmo gives the answers, plus some interesting suggestions

*“Why not come with me?” *he says, *“I know an awesome spot…*

*“A dreamy world where Moshlings who love numbers go a lot”*

The numbers nod but none of them ask where or how or why

And before he knows it, Cosmo’s flying with them through the sky

*One, two, three, four, five, six, seven*

*Eight, nine, ten, and then eleven,*

*Counting really makes you wonder*

*Cosmo’s dreamy number slumber*

Cosmo and his number pals are high above the ground

The stars are twinkling overhead, they cannot hear a sound

Cosmo now remembers that he’s actually in a dream

Then starts to count the twinkles in a shimmering moon beam

A number one’s above him and a three is by his side

Then two more threes and another one all join him for the ride

Adding them together, Cosmo finds they make eleven

But then a three and single one depart to leave just seven

Something doesn’t quite add up but Cosmo doesn’t care

For now he and his number friends are tumbling through the air

Slowly they descend… well, after all, this is a dream

And then they land upon the biggest sum you’ve ever seen

*One, two, three, four, five, six, seven*

*Eight, nine, ten, and then eleven,*

*Counting really makes you wonder*

*Cosmo’s dreamy number slumber*

Cosmo gazes down and sees he’s standing on the peak

Of a mighty stack of numbers; and most are fast asleep

A six is dozing by a four, next to several threes

And beneath them countless nines are swaying, just like leaves on trees

Cosmo clambers down this quite enormous number tower

And wonders if his mind has got enough computing power

For Cosmo has decided to work out this massive sum

After all he’s dreaming, and calculating’s fun

He starts to count and multiply, and then subtracts some twos

But as he starts dividing things he fights the urge to snooze

He drifts into a deeper sleep then gently starts to snore

And dreams his final answer, *eleventy thingity four*

The numbers in the towering sum now fade into the night

As twinkling stars above infuse the scene in wondrous light

Who knows how many stars there are, an infinite amount?

Just close your eyes and picture them… now come along, let’s count…

Goodnight

*1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10… *
