Hand-washing song ??

Can't stand singing the alphabet song ... what else are you using ?
I have found these are long enough:

Happy Days Are Here Again (two choruses))

California Here I Come

They Had to Carry Harry to the Ferry

or, if things seem to be going down like the Titanic, Nearer My God to Thee

The standard advice around here is "Happy Birthday" twice. But years ago I was told "Yankee Doodle." So far that has worked for me.

Kiss by Prince

You don't have to be rich to be my girl
You don't have to be cool to rule my world
Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with
I just want your extra time and your kiss
Maybe that last line isn't appropriate? Still fun to sing and it will annoy your kids.

I’m a little ashamed to admit it, but it was decades before I ever realized the alphabet song, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Baa Baa Black Sheep were all the same tune. An old French folk song? "Ah! vous dirai-je, maman" Mozart knew it too.
Keep washing and stay well whatever you sing!

99 bottles of beer on the wall is 10 seconds so you have to take two — 99 and 98 — down and pass them around.
How many beers do you end up at day’s end tells you how many times you washed your hands. Unless you really drank those beers and can only stagger to the sink.
