"HELPFUL HABITS"

I'll remember to wash up before I eat.
I'll try to keep my bedroom nice and neat.
Put my clothes back on the shelf,
Clean up after my self,
And always sit up straight in my seat.

Chorus 1
These helpful habits I am trying to learn,
To do my part around the house to show concern.
At first it's difficult, I'll take 'em one day at a time.

After dinner I'll tell Mom, "It was delicious!"
And then I'll help to wash the dirty dishes.
I'll sweep the kitchen floor, and do my other chores;
And Mom says, "Thank you," with hugs and kisses.

Chorus 2
These helpful habits I am trying to learn,
To do my part around the house to show concern.
It's getting easier, I'll take 'em one day at a time.
[One day at a time!-]

Helpful Habits! Helpful Habits!
Helpful Habits!
Yeah!

I'll be considerate in what I say and do,
And remember to say "Please" and "Thank you."
When I'm asked a question, I'll give my full attention,
And give a smile when introduced.

Chorus 3
These helpful habits I am trying to learn,
To do my part to show I care and I'm concerned.
These helpful habits are now easy to do,
Just keep on tryin', you can learn 'em too.

Chorus 4
These helpful habits I am trying to learn,
-To do my part to show I care and I'm concerned.
These helpful habits are now easy to do,
Just keep on trying, you can learn 'em too.
These helpful habits
Just take 'em one day at a time.
[Oooo, take, take 'em, one day at a time.]
These helpful habits
Just take 'em one day at a time.
