Neil Diamond Sings 'Hands, Washing Hands' Parody To 'Sweet Caroline'

In this musical treat from Neil Diamond, the singer performs a ‘Hands, Washing Hands’ parody to his song ‘Sweet Caroline.’


“Hi everybody! This is Neil Diamond. And I know we’re going through a rough time right now, but I love ya,” says the singer at his home while he is sitting beside the fireplace with his cute dog beside him. “And I think maybe if we sing together, well, we’ll just feel a little bit better. Give it a try, ok?”

That’s when Neil Diamond starts to play the tune to a song that so many people know like the back of their hand. It is one of those songs that you can’t help but sing along to! But Neil Diamond has comically updated the lyrics to keep safety in mind during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Hands, washing hands, reaching out
Don’t touch me, I won’t touch you
Sweet Caroline, good times never seemed so good
I've been inclined to believe they never would”

What a fun and uplifting video! And Neil Diamond’s voice is as impeccable as it was before. What a true talent he is.

“Nothing makes me smile more than a fabulous singer/songwriter parodying one of his biggest hits just to cheer us all up. Mission accomplished. Thank you, Neil,” writes one person on YouTube.

“Now that is what a super star looks like cheering everybody up. That put a smile on my face and added warmth to my heart,” comments another person on YouTube. “Thank you, Neil Diamond, for sharing your wonderful, endless, talent and ability to bring joy to a drab, worried, world. You are a national treasure.”

What a wonderful gift music is to the world. Enjoy this sweet video by Neil Diamond and have some fun singing along with him to this classic song!
