Manners , ain't nothing wrong with having manners

Show respect and some courtesy
You gotta give yours to receive
Manners , ain't nothing wrong with having manners
Show respect and some dignity
You gotta give yours to receive

Yes sir and yes maam
Thank you sir and thank you ma'am
May I have and pardon me
When you ask for something always say please

No sir and no ma'am
Give our elders a helping hand
Don't you lie, don't you cheat
Help the blind man cross the street

Manners , ain't nothing wrong with having manners
Show respect and some dignity
You gotta give yours to receive

Learn to listen and know when to talk
Keep your head high whenever you walk

Wash your hands and wash your face
Before you eat always say your grace

Brush your teeth before you go to bed
When in the house take that hat off your head
You don't have to use profanity
To try to get your point across to me

Manners , ain't nothing wrong with having manners
Show respect and some courtesy
You gotta give, you gotta give to receive
Manners , ain't nothing wrong with having manners
Show respect and some dignity
You gotta give, you gotta give to receive
