Lyrics to the Time Timer Song:

How Long Does it Take?

How long does it take to tie your shoe?
That only takes a minute or two.

How long does it take to feed your dog, Spot?
Maybe 5 minutes, maybe not.

If your clothes are laid out before saying good night,
I bet 10 minutes to dress would be just right.

How much time do you need to eat lunch?
Maybe 15 minutes... unless you eat a whole bunch.

How long to get really dirty?
On a bright sunny day, I’d say about 30.

What can you do if you have a whole hour?
The list is so long, go eat some clam chowder.

You can mix up some cookies,
And bake several batches.

You can measure and cut and sew new patches.

You could do laundry and fold to the moon.

You could help your mom clean your dirty room.

You could play with your toys,
Put them away.

You could count up your blessings for each new day.

It’s helpful to see that time is your friend,
When you know how much longer it is till the end.

How long? 
How long?
How long?
How long?
How long?
