Words and Music by Tommy Tucker. Arranged by Jos. Schwenseck.

Politeness is a virtue that's possessed by very few.
But those are just the folks that get along;
If over this you ponder you'll And that it is true,
So act upon it and you won't be wrong.
A kind word spoken often will prevent a sad affray
When in a hot debate or faction tight.
And you will find that always a does pay,
lf at all times you try to be polite.

Always be polite, boys, always be polite.
Follow up this maxim, you will come out right,
Never give short answers, but speak up quick and bright,
Always be polite, boys, always be polite.

The girls they all do like to catch a handsome, nice young man,
Especially one who has got plenty cash;
It's through the streets they ramble, each bearded face they scan,
To try if they can catch a dashing mash.
And when they've caught a lover who suits them to a T,
It makes their hearts feel happy, gay and light;
The way to keep them true to you is to do like me.
And speak in tones quite tender and polite.-Chorus.

Politeness to our parents is what we should cultivate,
No matter what our station in this world;
For surely we'll regret it, when, of course, it is too late,
And on our own resources we are hurled;
When we look back and think of them who brought us through
The hardships of this life both day and night.
We'll know how much they suffered and what for us they did do,
So at least to them we ought to be polite.-Chorus.
