Stir Up

Baby let’s drive into town
I wanna settle down

Whisper so as to not wake
Everyone and their grandparents
Respect your elders
Talk only when talked about
Yell if it’s slanderous

Please and thank-yous
Amens and hallelujahs
Salutations of every sort
Drowning them in kindness
For they may do the same to you
Goodness breeds goodness
Hate breeds hate
Just remember the silver rule
Kick those who have wronged you three times
Love those who have wronged you four or more
Zealously forgive and be sure to

Choosing your friends well
Vanishing swiftly if you made
Bad choices
Now, remember this one last thing
Mumbling makes you look like an idiot
