Mind your manners

Mind your manners
Surely you've heard
Parents would say
And meant every word

Good manners you have
When opening doors
For those in your car
And entering stores

Please and thank you
Means you’re polite
Well mannered people
Will not pick a fight

When introduced
Say, “how do you do”
Before you leave
Say, “nice meeting you”

It's Sir or Ma’am
As a sign of respect
For those with manners
This is correct

Thank you notes
Should quickly be sent
Telling the person
How much their gift meant

Mind your manners
But be sincere
Don’t talk about people
Because they're not near
