oh no george

Song: (Tune: “Three Blind Mice” – using “three mice in a box” puppet and a tissue)
Three nice mice, three nice mice
See how nice they are, see how nice they are
They’re always polite when they nibble their cheese
They never forget to say thank-you or please
They cover their noses whenever they sneeze
Ah-choo! Ah-choo! Ah-choo!
They’re three nice mice

Song: (Tune: “If You’re Happy and You Know It”)
Oh, before I eat my meals, I wash my hands
Oh, before I eat my meals, I wash my hands
Oh it’s very smart I think – to wash those germs right down the sink
Oh, before I eat my meals, I wash my hands

Oh, before I eat my meals, I pass the food
Oh, before I eat my meals, I pass the food
Oh, it would be very rude, if I didn’t share the food
Oh, before I eat my meals, I pass the food
