"THE RIGHT WAY TO PLAY"

I went with my kid brother to the park the other day.
A group of kids were fighting and wanting their own way.
Man, they were getting pushy, and one boy banged his knee;
But they just laughed and then kept right on shoving.

We went to help the boy who fell; he could hardly walk.
We sat down on a nearby bench and began to talk.
I said, "I've had some accidents, and caused some others too.
But now I know a better way; I'll show you that...

Chorus
"There's a right way to play and have a real good time.
There's a right way to play, so everyone feels fine.
If we take our turn and be careful and alert,
No one will get hurt and we'll be happy.

 

"I learned an important lesson once when I caused an accident.
It doesn't pay to push your way and risk losing a friend.
You can care about the other guy and still have lots of fun,
And then every one will have a good time. Yes...

[Repeat Chorus]

Chorus
Yes, there's a right way to play and have a real good time.
There's a right way to play, so everyone feels fine.
If we take our turn and be careful and alert,
No one will get hurt and we'll be happy.
No one will get hurt and we'll be happy."
