Cover your mouth when you cough!
You don’t want your germs jumping off
To infect another
Your sister or brother,
So cover your mouth when you cough!
Cover your nose when you sneeze!
Don’t let the germs fly, please!
To infect another, your sweet old grandmother,
So cover your mouth when you sneeze!
*If there is no sister or brother in the household replace the line with ‘pretty mother’, ‘daddy and mother’ or ‘friends, what a bother’. Be creative and personalize!
