"MANNERS"

Chorus:
Manners, thoughtful manners,
Showing love to everybody everyday.
Manners, thoughtful manners,
Being cheerful in the things I do and say.
Manners, thoughtful manners,
Forget myself and think of those around!
It's simply thinking more about the others,
And that's how love is found!

There are many times each day
When you and I can show
A little deed of kindness,
Everywhere we go. [Can I help you?]
Remember love is noticed
By the things we do and say, [Thank you so much!]
So let's try a little love
And help someone today!

[Repeat chorus]

I show respect for Mom and Dad,
For family members too,
I say, "Good morning, everyone", [Good morning, everyone!]
And ask, "How are you?" [How are you?]
I say, "Goodbye" to everyone
When I leave each day, [Goodbye!]
I find by showing love
That I am happier this way!

[Repeat Intro]

Spoken:
[Man:] Oh dear, this bus is so crowded,
I won't find a place to sit down!

[Girl:] Excuse me, Sir.
[Man:] Yes?
[Girl:] Would you like to have my seat?
[Man:] Oh! Why yes, little girl What kind manners!
[Girl:] Oh, you're welcome, Sir!

[Repeat chorus]

I know that keeping clean
Is always part of manners too,
I wash my hands before I eat
And keep my hair combed too!
Doing unto others
As I'd have them do to me [Here's a kiss for you] -
This is love and kindness
And the loving way to be!

[Repeat chorus]

It's simply thinking more about the others,
And that's how love is found!

Spoken:
[Man:] -Well, this is where I get off!
Thank you, little girl, you can have your seat back now!
[Girl:] Oh, you're welcome, sir! ...
Hmmm, it sure pays to be kind!
