Go and speak to your niece (do this do that)
Kiss your aunt on the cheek
Don't talk back, now run along
It's gone eight, say goodnight
That's the way that it's done
Boy and girl, girl and boy
This is how you do it and
Who am I to reason why
Wear a shirt, wear a tie
You look smart in a suit
Use your fork in the left
Straighten up shoulders back
This is the way that it's done
