Manners matter they really do.
Like a mirror they reflect on you.
So use your manners everyday,
No matter where you work or play.
When you meet someone you say “How do you do?”
In Spain, “Como estas?”.
In China, “Ni hao wan.”
In France, “Comment se vas?”
When you want something you say “Please”.
In Spain, “por favor”,
In China, “Chi’in”.
In France, “si vous plait”
When you get something you say “Thank you”
In Spain, “gracias”.
In China “Shi shi nee”
In France, “merci”
In Hindi, thank you’s “Tun ya vad”.
In Japanese, “Duomo”
In Farsi, “Mamood”.
You’re welcome, “Da nada” in Spanish.
In Japanese, “Dou itashimashite”.
In French, “Je vous en prie”.
In Farsi, “Hahesh minkonam”.
