Two Words, Please
Song For Teaching Children How Answer Politely
Cathy Bollinger


This song is available on Cathy Bollinger's Ready to Learn! Songs for School Success.
 

Chorus:
Two words, please
Two words, please
Add a word or two and make it good for you
Two words, please

When you give an answer like "yes" or "no"
Or even a response like the dreaded "so"
It sounds so hard and not so kind
Add another word and it’s all fine

Chorus:
Two words, please
Two words, please
Add a word or two and make it good for you
Two words, please

Now maybe when your Dad asks if you’d like some cake
“Yes, I would” sounds great
Or your teacher asks if you are set
You could say "No, not just yet”

Chorus:
Two words, please
Two words, please
Add a word or two and make it good for you
Two words, please

"Yes" or "no," when said alone
Can cause some folks to quietly moan
Add another word or two
and you’ll see people smile at you

So try to think of other ways to say
"Yes" or "no," it’s a game to play
Add a "thank you," add a "please."
Before you know it, it’s a breeze

Chorus:
Two words, please
Two words, please
Add a word or two and make it good for you
Two words, please
Add a word or two and make it good for you
Two words please
