Name of Song: The Manners of the Greet

My own self importance,
It doesn’t really work,
Silently another thinks
I’m probably a jerk.

Finding something interesting
in who I tend to meet,
A better way to make a friend,
The Manners of the Greet.

Chorus
Make them feel important
for who they seem to be,
The key to many friendships
as far as the eye can see.
Make them feel important
for who they want to be,
The key to many friendships
as far as the eye can see.

I know I am invisible,
I’m always hard to see,
Let another be the first
to say who they are being.
