The Question Is The Key

by Bonnie Seach

Mother, you told me if I'm not smart, I'd best be a good friend - Why?
Well, look at it this way Sweetheart, being popular is the trend - How?
It all depends on how you act.
Be sweet and kind and gentle - When?
When you're with friends and reaching out, be helpful and sentimental - Where?
At school, at work, and at your play -- Good manners set apart a desirable maiden with a flair for stealing a loving heart - Who?
I hope a fine young gentleman with goals that have deep meaning...
Now stop the questions; Let them pass - Why?
Because you'll have me screaming! - When?
