[Verse 1]
C                        F           C
When I was a little kid, not so long ago
   F             C              Dm          G
I had to learn a lot of stuff I didn’t even know
       C                           F
How to dress myself, tie my shoes, how to jump a rope
       Am          F               Dm             G
How to smile for a picture without looking like a dope
       F                C          F                C
But of all the things I learned my favorite of them all
      F           C              Dm           G
Was a little poem hanging on the Kindergarten wall:

[Chorus]
G7 C                  F                 C
Of all you learn here remember this the best:
F               C         Dm            G
Don’t hurt each other and clean up your mess
C                     F
Take a nap every day, wash before you eat
     Am              F             Dm                   G
Hold hands.  Stick together.  Look before you cross the street.
      F          C           F            C
And remember the seed in the little paper cup:
          C    G    F                 F     G     C
First the root goes down and then the plant grows up!

[Chorus]
G7 C                  F                 C
Of all you learn here remember this the best:
F               C         Dm            G
Don’t hurt each other and clean up your mess
C                     F
Take a nap every day, wash before you eat
     Am              F             Dm                   G
Hold hands.  Stick together.  Look before you cross the street.
      F          C           F            C
And remember the seed in the little paper cup:
          C    G    F                 F     G     C
First the root goes down and then the plant grows up!

[Verse 2]
            C         F          C
Well it was 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade, 4th grade too
        F              C                 Dm       G
Where I had to learn a lot of stuff that big kids do
   C                           F
To add, subtract and multiply, read and write and play
       Am                F                    G
How to sit in a little uncomfortable desk for nearly half a day
       F                   C             F                 C
But of all the things they taught me, of all the great and small
         F                C           Dm           G
Still my favorite was the poem on the Kindergarten wall

[Chorus]
G7 C                  F                 C
Of all you learn here remember this the best:
F               C         Dm            G
Don’t hurt each other and clean up your mess
C                     F
Take a nap every day, wash before you eat
     Am              F             Dm                   G
Hold hands.  Stick together.  Look before you cross the street.
      F          C           F            C
And remember the seed in the little paper cup:
          C    G    F                 F     G     C
First the root goes down and then the plant grows up!

[Verse 3]
    C                             F               C
But lately I’ve been worried as I look around and see
   F            C                Dm             G
An awful lot of grown-ups acting foolish as can be
  C                                     F
I know there’s lots of things to know I haven’t mastered yet
         Am                   F                  Dm               G
Still it seems there’s real important stuff that grownups soon forget
    F                C             F               C
I’m sure we’d all be better off if we would just recall
     F           C              Dm           G
That little poem hanging on the kindergarten wall.

[Chorus]
G7 C                  F                 C
Of all you learn here remember this the best:
F               C         Dm            G
Don’t hurt each other and clean up your mess
C                     F
Take a nap every day, wash before you eat
     Am              F             Dm                   G
Hold hands.  Stick together.  Look before you cross the street.
      F          C           F            C
And remember the seed in the little paper cup:
          C    G    F                 F     G     C
First the root goes down and then the plant grows up!
