GOOD LISTENER 

words & music by ray andersen


Everybody's talking at the same time
Nobody hears a word that said
Your cute little ears are wondering what's up
They wanna learn and hear the things around your head

chorus 
Be a good listener!
When your teacher speaks
Be a good listener!
It's a kind way to be
Be a good listener!
Can you hear me?
Take your turn when you're talking
Let your manners do the walking
Pay attention!

How're you gonna learn if you don't hear
The things your teacher's telling you
And with your friends 
You wanna talk some cool stuff
But you can be a good listener, too 

chorus 
Be a good listener!
When your teacher's speaks
Be a good listener!
It's a kind way to be
Be a good listener!
Can you hear me?
Take your turn when you're talking
Let your manners do the walking
Pay attention!

If you're talking
No one's listening
It's such a mess 
But if you're listening
Together we say yes to each other

Be a good listener!
When your teacher's speaks
Be a good listener!
It's a kind way to be
Be a good listener!
Can you hear me?
Take your turn when you're talking
Let your manners do the walking
Pay attention!

Be a good listener! Be a good listener!
