Sesame Street – I Gotta Be Clean lyrics
(He's got to be clean
He's got to be clean, ahhhh!)

I wash my hands whenever I eat
And in the bath I wash my ears,
My elbows and feet

I gotta to be clean!
I gotta be clean!
It's healthy and keen!
I gotta be clean!
Yes sir!

I start each day
By brushing my teeth (brush, brush)
Gettin' the plaque and stuff off
The smile underneath
I gotta be clean (clean)
And I floss in between (tween)
Like a tree must be green (green)
I gotta be clean (he's got to be clean!)

Each day's a fight
With the forces of dirt (dirt, dirt, dirt)
Battling the smudge
And the smear and the squirt (squirt, squirt, squirt)
What do I do when spaghetti's all over my shirt? (shirt, shirt, shirt)
(Does he just wear it and wear it and wear it for weeks?)
(Not Bert)
I wash it, THEN I wear it!

I may be sad
I may be beat
I may be cross or tired or mad
But I'll always be neat
I gotta be clean (he's got to be clean)
Like all pigeons I've seen
Or a fresh nectarine
Or some laundry's that's been
Through a washing machine
I gotta be clean!

Hey! Who took the soap?
