You Brush Your Teeth

When you wake up in the morning,
It's a quarter to one.
You want to have a little fun.

You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....

When you wake up in the morning,
It's a quarter to two, and you don't know just what to do.
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....

And when you wake up in the morning,
It's a quarter to three, and you have the biggest smile for me.
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....

I have a special sound to get the back of the teeth.
We're going to say "E-E-E-E." Try it!
E-E-E-E E-E-E- E-E—--Both sides-- E-E-E-E E-E-E- E-E.

Don't forget to get the inside of the mouth.
We're gonna make it sound like "o-o."
You ready? Try it now!
O-O-O-O— O-O-O -O-O ---- O-O-O-O— O-O-O -O-O

It's a good idea to brush your tongue, too, to make your breath smell sweet.
Stick it out and say "Aaaaa." Make it sound bad!
Aaaaa—Aaaaa—Aaaaa—Aaaaa — Aaaaa-Aaaaa—Aaaaa - Aaaaa- Aaaaa
Aaaaa—Aaaaa—Aaaaa—Aaaaa — Aaaaa-Aaaaa—Aaaaa - Aaaaa- Aaaaa

When you wake up in the morning,
It's a quarter to four;
You hear a great big knock on the door.
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....

And when you wake up in the morning, it's a quarter to five,
And you're so glad to be alive!
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....

You brush in back,
E-E-E-E E-E-E- E-E.
You brush inside,
O-O-O-O— O-O-O -O-O.
You brush your tongue,
Aaaaa—Aaaaa—Aaaaa—Aaaaa Aaaaa-Aaaaa—Aaaaa - Aaaaa- Aaaaa.
You brush your tongue again cause it's fun!
Aaaaa—Aaaaa—Aaaaa—Aaaaa Aaaaa-Aaaaa—Aaaaa - Aaaaa- Aaaaa.

You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....
Bring it down…
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....
As quietly as you can do it…
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....
Loudly!!
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch ch....
