Tired of ‘Happy Birthday’? More songs to sing while you wash your hands for 20 seconds
“I Want to Hold Your Hand,” The Beatles
Oh yeah, I’ll tell you something/I think you’ll understand — one verse of this classic amounts to 20 seconds.
“Johnny B. Goode,” Chuck Berry
One verse — or just sing along to one go-round of the guitar solo — and you’re ready.
“Respect,” Aretha Franklin
One verse and chorus, including “just a little bit,” which is almost the coolest part.
“I Want It That Way,” Backstreet Boys
One verse. Don’t tell me why.

“Shining Star,” Earth, Wind and Fire
Two choruses, like the double chorus at the end. From personal experience, I can say it’s hard to stop at two, although public-health are unlikely to recommend you stop there if you don’t want to.
“Get Ready,” The Temptations
One chorus, including the “Get ready ’cause here I come” part in between the chorus and verse. (And I picked this version, even though it’s a little faster, because of the steps, as well as the Paul Revere and the Raiders intro.)
