Lyrics

2019 lyrics

Simon: Before you eat food

Emma: After you play with animals

Lachy: And after you use the toilet

Wiggles: Wash your hands

Wet your hands

Use liquid soap

Lather your hands

And rub them round

Emma: And count to fifteen... ready?

Wiggles: 1, 2, 3, 4

5, 6, 7, 8

9, 10, 11, 12

13, 14, 15

Wiggles: Rinse your hands,

Towel or air them dry

Turn off the tap

With a towel or your sleeve

Emma: Now your hands are clean

Wiggles: Wet your hands

Use liquid soap

Lather your hands

And rub them round

Emma: And count to fifteen... ready?

Wiggles: 1, 2, 3, 4

5, 6, 7, 8

9, 10, 11, 12

13, 14, 15

Wiggles: Rinse your hands,

Towel or air them dry

Turn off the tap

With a towel or your sleeve

Emma: Now your hands are clean
