No Matter Where You Live, We Can’t Shake Hands

A while ago, I constructed a list of kids’ songs that weren’t totally obnoxious. I was thinking about that list, and realized this one is ruined.

Lyrics are here.
Thanks, Coronavirus! We certainly *don’t* want to teach kids to shake hands right now. That song is so beautiful, so simple, and so sadly not a good song right now, even though we need the unity in it.

On a side note, it is really hard to unlearn to offer your hand to shake. Without thinking, I have stuck it out and then yanked it back in feeling like an idiot. It’s like hearing the words “Nice to meet you” triggers an unconscious response of sticking the hand out.

Hopefully that song won’t be ruined forever.
