Notes

Below are some versions I came up with for this rhyme to make it more modern. I hope you enjoy them! –Mama Lisa

Wash hands, wash,
Daddy shouted Wow!
If you want your hands washed,
Have them washed now.

*****

Wash hands, wash,
The cat said meow,
If you want your hands washed,
Have them washed now.

*****

Wash hands, wash,
The dog went bow-wow,
If you want your hands washed,
Have them washed now.
