Sing a Song

You already know that washing your hands is important to be healthy! Here is a song about GERMS!

The G-E-R-M-S Song
(Tune: Frère Jacques)

Are you coughing?
Are you sneezing?
Cover your mouth,
Cover your mouth.
Germs are always flying,
Germs are always flying.
Wash your hands.
Wash your hands.

Watch
