“The adult version of ‘head, shoulders, knees and toes’ is ‘glasses, wallet, keys and phone‘“

"The adult version of ‘head, shoulders, knees and toes’ is ‘glasses, wallet, keys and phone’” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” is a children’s song.

“The adult version of ‘head, shoulders, knees, and toes’ is ‘phone, wallet, keys, and smokes’” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on February 13, 2019. It was posted again on Reddit—Showerthoughts on February 22, 2019, and people suggested “Once you’re older it’s phone, wallet, keys and glasses” and “No, its Wallet, glasses, keys and phone.”

“The adult version of ‘head, shoulders, knees and toes’ is ‘wallet, glasses, keys and phone’” was posted on Twitter by The Frugal Dietitian (and others) on April 11, 2019.


Wikipedia: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
“Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” is a children’s song. The song has been documented as early as the 1950s, and is often sung to the tune of “There Is a Tavern in the Town”.

Sayings like “Turn-around, don’t drown” help us remember important things and just as one radio station suggested that the adult version of the kids song “Head, shoulders, knees and toes” should be “Wallet, glasses, keys, and phone” to help older folks remember their daily routine, so is the Nixa Police Department now mounting a Facebook campaign called the 9 p.m. Routine, reminding you to bring in your valuables from the car, lock your doors and shut your garage door every night before going to bed.
