Isaac Watts: “Joy to the World”

[Another handwashing-to-the-oldies song fragment to help you wash your hands for a full 20 seconds. Because being immunocompromised doesn’t mean you have to sing “Happy Birthday To You” ad nauseum.]

Joy to the world! The Lord is come
Let earth receive her king
Let every heart prepare him room
And heaven and nature sing, and heaven and nature sing
[can start rinsing here]
And heaven and heaven and nature sing.

Hymns are often sung in different tempos. The section above is about 20 seconds when sung at the tempo used in :09 to :34 of this youtube link.

Three Dog Night: “Joy to the World”

Jeremiah was a bullfrog
He was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine
Singing joy to the world
[can start rinsing here]
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me!

Tempo taken from :07 to :38 of this Youtube video.
