In just a few years of living
You have had the chance
To learn some of life's lessons
Like how to put on your pants

You haven't given too much thought
To all that life's about
But here's one simple principle
That helps everybody out ... it's


Try not to be a jerk
Cover your mouth when you sneeze,
'Cause that's how manners work
Share your stuff with others
Who don't have as much as you
Be nice to other people
Even when that's hard to do, and
Try not to be a jerk

When you really want something
That does not belong to you
Taking it from someone else
Is not the thing to do

Don't push other people
Out of your way
And keep your piehole shut
If you have nothing nice to say, and


When you have a disagreement
With a stranger or a friend
And you think you want to hit them
Stop and think again

You might wind up in the hospital
Or maybe behind bars
At the very least
You'll probably end up seeing stars, so


So if you're one of those people
As all of us can be
Kindly take a minute
Lend your ear to me

You don't have to be perfect
Neither do I
All that we can really do
Is give it a try! and
