“Wash your hands!”, you’ve heard mom say,
from dusk till dawn, every single day.
“Why do I need to wash them?” you think,
every time you need to eat or drink.
Making sure food is cooked properly is the first step.
Before you dig in you need to get your hands wet.
Add some soap and rub-a-dub-dub,
rinse and dry your hands, and then get into your grub.
Because if you don’t wash your hands,
you might be in for some unfortunate plans.
When your tummy starts to rumble,
and your stomach feels like a wild jungle,
when you’re running in a panic to the loo,
you'll have no one else to blame but you.
If only you had washed your hands before you ate,
You might not be in such a horrible state.
