There is a mouse in my treehouse, a little one.
He wears and suit and tie and drinks hot tea, very hot tea.
When I go up there I sit at the table, with him.
He teaches me about courtesy.
Say "Please, pretty please."
Say "Excuse me" and such.
Say "I’m sorry and forgive me."
Say "Thank you very much."
He placed a napkin on my lap (he said that’s where it goes)
For there was sap that fell on my lap and hit my nap- kin.
"Chew with your mouth closed," said the mouse.
"You still use manners in a treehouse."
Chorus (x 2)
We should always use our manners!
Our songs for children about peace and justice, resolving conflicts, and celebrating our global family are more important than ever in these troubled times. These Peace Resources are intended to help us all move forward with hope and tools for song and action as we work together to build a healthier, more peaceful world.
