SHOW RESPECT

By Josie Whitehead

Show Respect

Speak nicely to your parents, dear -

     And do as you are told.

Remember that you're young my love,

     Whilst both of them are old!

Speak nicely to your parents, dear –

      You are their little treasure.

Of course they like to tell you off: 

     It is their only pleasure.

Speak nicely to your parents, dear -

       And when they're cross, just learn.

One day you'll be a parent too -

      And then you'll have your turn!
