Be sure to take your hostess
A gift that's really dandy
Like a big tin of popped popcorn
Or a lovely box of candy.
Always mimnd your manners
And do everything they ask,
Especially when it's helping out
With some dull household task.
It's never, ever easy
To be a perfect guest,
But remember this is their house
And do what they request.
Of course you'll always make your bed
And offer to do boring chores,
Although you'd rather be hiking
In the glorious outdoors.
