TYLER, Texas — As if Neil Diamond wasn't legendary enough, he's changed the lyrics to one of his most popular songs to promote hand washing amid the coronavirus outbreak.
We all know the tune, "Sweet Caroline":
Hands, touching hands
Reaching out, touching me, touching you
Sweet Caroline (BA, BA, BA!)
Good times never seemed so good (SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD!)
Well the 79-year-old singer has switched up those famous words and is encouraging listeners to stay healthy and safe.
He performed the following during a fireside concert Saturday night via Twitter:
Hands, washing hands
Reaching out, don't touch me, I won't touch you
Thank you, Neal Diamond. Thank you!
