Handsploshing Habit!

Sink, water, soap - splish, splash, splosh,

Make washing your hands a handwashing habit.

Keep disease away with a soapy slosh -

Sink, water, soap - splish, splash, splosh.

Wet hands, scrub hands, wash, wash, wash,

Bottled soap, soap bar - go for it - grab it!

Sink, water, soap, - splish, splash, splosh,

Make washing your hands a handwashing habit.
