I Would Wash 500 Times

A recent email to me posed the following “But I challenge you to also focus on the goodness emerging in this very tough time, and to actively seek new ways to feel happy, fulfilled, connected, and inspired during this period.”


In the spirit of us at FBS embracing isolation while feeling happy, fulfilled, connected and inspired (and politicians singing while they are washing their hands on television), I apologise in advance for what's coming next... This is my contribution to the new musical genre “Hand Washing Music”….


But I would wash 500 times

And I would wash 500 more

Just to be the man who washed a thousand times

and not come to your door


When I wake up, well I know I'm gonna be,

I'm gonna be the man who washes up for you

When I go out, yeah I know I'm gonna be

I'm gonna be the man who stays away from you

If I get sick, well I know I'm gonna be

I'm gonna be the man who isolates from you

And if I lather up, yeah I know I'm gonna be

I'm gonna be the man who's lathering up for you


But I would wash 500 times

And I would wash 500 more

Just to be the man who washed a thousand times

and not come to your door
