A Lesson in Politeness. Fabulous. Enjoy.

Jay - Jay's Junction

A Lesson In Politeness
by Ada Leonora Harris

Politeness costs nothing, although, as you go
Through the world, you will find it of use;
So take my advice, and be sure and say "Bo!"
Whenever you meet with a goose.

A Goose says Bo

And while you're about it, remember that "Neigh,"
And not "No," should be said to a horse;
While, when you encounter a donkey, you'll say,
"Hee Haw!" as a matter of course.

Donkey goes Hee-HawHorse
goes Neigh not No

On meeting a cow you will not find it hard
To remember to murmer "Milk-oo!"
And if a cock crows as you pass a farmyard,
You should answer, "How-doodle-you-doo?"

Cow goes Milk-ooCock crows How-doodle-you-doo

"Bow-wow" and Mia-ow," to a dog or a cat,
Cost no more than a kick or a cuff;
"Politeness to all" is my motto, and that
For one lesson, I think is enough.

Abbey goes
Bow-wowSweepy goes Mia-ow


Printed around 1917, but I can't be certain. I do know from checking online that she did write a lot of songs and there is a chance that she came from Australia, please get in touch if you have anymore information.
