Transcript

Try to be kind

It’s good to share your toys and games

With friends, even if you mind.

But if you don’t want to share today

You should still try to be kind.

 

It’s good to say sorry if you’re wrong

And you’ll feel better, you’ll find.

But if you don’t want to say sorry yet

You should still try to be kind.

 

It’s good to forgive when you feel hurt

Even if someone’s been unkind.

But if you don’t want to listen yet

You should still try to be kind.

 

It’s hard to feel you’re not doing well

Or you wish you could press rewind.

But the most important thing is this,

You should still try to be kind.
