‘The Rock’ Sings ‘Coronavirus Has Gotta Go’ With Daughter, Changes Lyrics in Popular Moana Song [Video]
- Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sings You’re Welcome from Moana while teaching his daughter the 20-second recommended technique for washing your hands.
- The actor changes lines from the original song, singing “coronavirus has gotta go” instead.
- Health experts say that hand scrubbing motions, lathering hands with soapy water minimizes the disease transmission during this outbreak.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sings You’re Welcome from Moana, this time to teach his youngest daughter Tiana Gia (who turns 2 this month) how to properly wash her hands. The version posted on Instagram was different from how Maui sang the original song in the 2016 Disney film.
The taped video demos hand scrubbing motions of the girl looking at her father, lathering her hands with soapy water while following the recommended 20-second washing. The rendition changes the lyrics of the original song to “coronavirus has gotta go” in line with the underlying goal to teach kids how to properly wash their hands, precautionary to the disease outbreak.
The Rock captioned his post, “Our sheltering at home, pre daddy’s shower ritual ????????????,” adding “Before my showers now, Baby Tia (mama mia) demands I sing the rap portion of my song ‘You’re Welcome’ from MOANA, while I wash her hands.”
“We realized a few weeks ago that the rap portion of the song is perfect timing when getting your little ones to have fun washing their hands,” The Rock added. “Stay healthy and safe, my friends,” ending it with, “And gotta love how at the start of this vid, baby Tia is like, ‘just shut your mouth and sing daddy’ ????.”
This is not the first time the actor posted tribute videos for her daughters. The Rock posted another video for his three daughters, Tiana, Jasmine Lia, and Simone Alexandra in line with the celebration of International Women’s Day last month.
He shared what he most feels proud of his daughters. In the video he posted for Tiana, he asks her daughter, “Can you say, ‘I’m a pretty girl?’” after which she repeated the words from her father.
“More importantly than that, can you say, ‘I’m an awesome girl?’” The Rock asked her daughter on the sink, who repeats the lines after him, “I’m a smart girl,” “I’m a very smart girl” and “I can do anything” — ending with “Daddy’s the best” before giving her mom Lauren Hashian a shout-out with, “Mother!”
“The world will one day hear from you too, my strong little love,” The Rock captioned the video. “And I can’t promise you I’ll love you for the rest of your life, but you have my word I’ll love and protect you for the rest of mine.”
