Song Lyrics

FIGHT BAC!®

There's something lurking in your home, quiet and invisible
In the kitchen, on your hands, bacteria.
It's hiding at the grocery store, creeping round the playground
Follows you back to your home, bacteria.
But don't be frightened, don't be scared because we have a plan, together we can...

FIGHT BAC!®, we'll fight BAC!®, we'll fight bacteria
FIGHT BAC!®, we'll fight BAC!®
We'll learn to know it's coming, quickly send it running
And clean up our act, we'll fight BAC
FIGHT BAC!®, we'll fight BAC!®, we'll fight bacteria
FIGHT BAC!®, we'll fight BAC!®
We'll learn to see it coming, quickly send it running
And clean up our act, we'll FIGHT BAC!®

Wash

1,2,3, hup, everybody wash with us
Pump that soap and wash those hands
20 seconds every time fights bacteria and grime
Scrub them, rub them, wash those hands
Even when it seems they're clean
There's some stuff that can't been seen
Scrub bacteria off of those hands

Cook It

(Chorus) 
Cook it, cook it, cook it through and through
Cook it till its done inside
Give the BAC!® no place to hide
Cook it, cook it, cook it all the way
Killing that bacteria each and every day
BAC!® is hiding in that raw fish, hiding in raw meat

Cook your food and cook it well cause BAC!® can't take the heat
Raw eggs in the cookie batter? BAC!® is in there too
Eating it could make you sick; let's keep a healthy you

Meat or poultry, cook it through and through
Cook it till its done inside
Give the BAC!® no place to hide
Cook it, cook it, cook it all the way
Killing that bacteria each and every day
Killing that bacteria each and every day

Chill

Chill the food, friend, clean up the mess, 
into the fridge in two hours or less
Chill the food, friend, don't wait around, 
Yucky stuff can grow without a smell or a sound
Chill the food

Pop it in the fridge or in the freezer, now you know,
That if you don't bacteria may come and grow
On your food, friend, making you ill
You'll avoid the yucky stuff if only you will 
Chill the food, Chill the food, Chill the food, Chill the food, Chill the food.

Food Detectives

Spoken: "We have an alert: Suspect bacteria is believed to be lurking on unwashed fruits and vegetables, raw fish, meats and eggs, foods left at room temperature for more than 2 hours. We're calling all Food Detectives to FIGHT BAC!®"

Here they come, to answer the call
Food Detectives giving their all
Willing to wash their hands and fight
Fight bacteria day and night

(chorus)
We're calling all Food Detectives, 
giving out the tools to win
We're raising up Food Detectives, fight BAC to win

Washing fruits and vegetables, 
won't eat meats or fish when raw
Washing plates, counter tops and knives, 
we won't let bacteria hide
