Every time you wash your hands
The whole world demands
That you don’t use your pants to get them dry

You’ll look smarter than an owl
If you fold one paper towel
Shake your hands and merely blot the wet away

Shake and fold (Shake and fold!)
Shake and fold (Shake and fold!)
Shake your hands and fold one paper towel
Shake and fold (Shake and fold!)
Shake and fold (Shake and fold!)
It’s a better way to dry your hands right now

BREAK

Wasting paper is so tragic
When just a little magic
Can make one paper towel work twice as well

“Intersti-tial suspension”
Sounds like a fourth dimension
It’s so AWESOME – it makes me want to yell!  Ya-Hoo!

CHORUS & BREAK

You don’t have to fiddle
The magic’s in the middle
The air inside the fold can suck up more

Shake the water off your hands
Don’t fill up the waste cans
Use just one folded towel – you don’t need four!
