The secret, the secret to living,
The secret to living is simple but true.
Treat others, treat others the way,
Treat others the way you’d like them to treat you.
Your smile is worth nothing, ‘til given away,
The words, ‘May I help you?’ will not go astray.
Say, ‘Yes, please’, and ‘Thank you’ and ‘Have a nice day!’
‘Excuse me’ to someone who’s blocking your way.
Let’s try to be friendly, show others we care,
If somebody needs us, we’ll try to be there;
And when people don’t think the way that we do,
We’ll listen while they share their own point of view!
