Cover your mouth and turn your head when you
cough, cough, cough cough, cough, cough

Cover your mouth and turn your head when you
cough, cough, cough cough, cough, cough

That's the Healthy Thing to do
We can even stop the Flu
So, cover your mouth and turn your head
When you cough, cough, cough,

Cover your mouth and turn your head when you
Ah choo, Ah choo
Cover your mouth and turn your head when you
Ah Choo Ah Choo

Cover up that coughing wheeze and I'll protect you from my sneeze
Oh, Cover your mouth and turn your head when you
ah ah choo

Tag:

Cover up that coughing wheeze...
Then wash your hands up to your sleeve
Oh, Cover your mouth and turn your head when you
Cough, cough, cough,

Ah choo
