"Polite"


       
   
1.

Oh who's the friendly little chap,
That always thinks to lift his cap,
And says "Good morning," says "Good night?"
'Tis Paul Polite! 'Tis Paul Polite.
Three cheers for Paul Polite!

       
   
2.

Who jumps so quickly to his feet,
If any lady needs a seat,
As courteous as a gallant knight?
'Tis Paul Polite! 'Tis Paul Polite.
Three cheers for Paul Polite!
