Oh, the bugs out there are frightful!
What you’ll catch is NOT delightful!
Since you don’t want sick, sick glands!
Wash your hands! Wash your hands! Wash your hands!

Bugs now don’t show signs of stopping!
And we know they mutate! -  Popping
Up all over you’ll find new strands!
Wash your hands! Wash your hands! Wash your hands!

Yes, we finally understand
How much damage those bugs can do!
We're determined we'll stand and fight
Let’s say goodbye to the flu!

Yes, the bugs out there are frightful!
But it’s now we must be spiteful!
Health and Safety now commands!
Wash your hands! Wash your hands! Wash your hands!

What a cute song, I think the teachers should sing it to all their young students making a game of it yet teaching something so useful.......:-) Hugs

Love the song! I'll probably go through the airport today humming it and people will think I'm crazy because they'll think I'm humming about snow of all things,

Speaking of airports, last week when we came back from FL I stopped in the rest room after we got off our flight and was appalled by the number of women who didn't wash their hands. How disgusting! Sometimes I just want to shake people, but that would require actually touching them, which I really don't want to do at all, especially once I've seen that they don't wash their hands!

Feel free to use the song to bring the message home!

Thanks ladies for stopping by! I so agree with you Karabeth! Have observed that myself and not just at airports. I'm still in my cubicle, hear several other doors open, people leave, and there were no sounds of running water at the sinks! YUCK!!!!!

Great poem - but I have been laid low with terrible cold, so only just found it. And yet I have been OBSESSIVE about handwashing lately.
I will share this on my blog
