“The adult version of ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’ is now ‘Mask, wallet, keys and phone‘“

“Head(s), shoulders, knees and toes” is an exercise song that is common in primary schools. “The adult version of ‘head, shoulders, knees and toes’ is ‘glasses, wallet, keys and phone‘“ is an associated joke, but this changed with face mask requirements associated with the 2020 COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

“I used to sing ‘phone wallet keys phone wallet keys cant leave without those phone wallet keys’ to the tune of niggun neshomele and recently I switched it to ‘phone wallet keys and mask’ to the tune of head shoulders knees and toes” was posted on Twitter by simmy cohen on June 14, 2020. “‘Wallet, Mask, Keys, & Phone’ is the adult version of ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes’” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on July 7, 2020.
