Wash-y Wash Wash (Warshy Little Tootsy)
Words and Music by Woody Guthrie

Washy washy washy,
Washy washy washy,
Jingle jangle ding-a-ling,
Pinky panky ponk.

Warshy little tootsy,
Warshy little baby toe,
Warshy little chin chin,
Pinky panky ponk.

Warshy little leg leg,
Warshy little cheek cheek,
Warshy little eyes-y,
Pinky panky ponk.

Splish splash toes-y,
Splashy little piggy pig,
Splash splash handsy,
Pinky panky ponk.

Washy washy washy,
Washy washy washy,
Jingle jangle ding-a-ling,
Pinky panky ponk.

Splish splash big toe,
Splish splash little toe,
Splish splash finger,
Pinky panky ponk.

Wipe wipe this knee,
Rub rub that knee,
Dry dry tum tum,
Pinky panky ponk.

Brush brush pretty hair,
Brush brush pretty hair,
Wrapped in a warm towel,
Pinky panky ponk.

Washy washy washy,
Washy washy washy,
Jingle jangle ding-a-ling,
Pinky panky ponk.
