Manner Songs


This is sung to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It”

If you have manners and you know it just say please,
If you have manners and you know it just say please,
If you have manner and you know it then don’t be afraid to show it,
If you have manners and you know it just say please.

If you have manners and you know it say thank you,
If you have manners and you know it say thank you,
If you have manners and you know it, Then don’t be afraid to show it,
If you have manners and you know it say thank you.

You can add verses using you’re welcome, yes ma’am, yes sir, excuse me, etc.


I don’t remember where I picked this song up but it’s an oldie Two little magic words, That can open any door with ease.
One little word is thanks,
And the other little word is please.


This is a song we sing to encourage good manners.

to the tune of fara jacquera
please and thank you
please and thank you
don’t we say
don’t we say
when we have our snack time
when we have our snack time
every day
every day.


This is a song I learned from a colleague a long time ago. I do not know the origin, but the kids love it.

Think of Others Please!

Think of others please when you cough or sneeze. Cover your mouth. One more time you’ll have it. Then it will be habit. Cover your mouth. When you’ve got a cold, you need to go to bed. Cover up and rest your head. Think of others please when you cough or sneeze. Cover your mouth!


(To the tune of If You’re Happy and You Know It)
When you’re talking to a friend look at him
When you’re talking to a friend look at him
Listen to his words
Because he’s wanting to be heard
When you’re talking to a friend look at him.
