The Lyrics

We must learn to be gracious
And to have patience, oh
We all need help with both
Gotta take the good times
Along with the bad times
We're all aware that there is always room for growth

Courtesy, courtesy
We all could use some, more
Of hospitality
Courtesy, courtesy
It's not common, like it's 'sposed to be

We need to abide by the golden rule
Let keep our cool when tempers rise
'Cause maybe, there's some misperception, or
Something that missed our eyes

Courtesy, courtesy
Lets stretch ourselves, with
some longanimity
Courtesy, courtesy
It's not common, like it's 'sposed to be

We should be minding our manners as much as we can
We should always be polite
We should shape our dispositions
After Mr. Rogers now
Who could refute those pearly whites?

Courtesy, courtesy
Lets reach inside, for
Some equanimity
Courtesy, courtesy
It's uncommon, in today's society
