Hello, Bakhtawar. First of all, I would say that not every poem or song has to be educational. It's enough that a child enjoys it! But then, as a retired maths teacher, I would say that the song teaches the concept of counting and, not only that, the concept of counting backward. It could also be claimed that the song teaches children that if you jump on the bed you can get hurt! I'm not sure how effective that is, however.... :-)
