Ellie told me she had written a song, “in my head” and asked that I type up the lyrics for her.

Done.

Please note every time she sings “be nice” in her special singing voice, it sounds a lot like “be an ass.”

Does it really matter how we walk down the street? Does it? Yeah does it?

Or does it really matter if we’re a good person? Yeah Yeah Yeah

So I think the meaning is, don’t be a bully, be nice

Don’t be a bully, be nice

Don’t be a bully, be nice

Don’t be a bully, be nice

Cause if we’re all a good person, then people can have more friends and everything good can happen—Yeah!

Hey everybody let’s look and see, everyone here is nice I hope

Never be a bully just be nice

Never be a bully just be nice

Never be a bully just be nice

Howdy!

Stage note: When Ellie sings “Howdy!” at the end, she will be wearing a cowboy hat and will throw it into the audience.

Stage note amended: Ellie will still throw the hat but it will be one she doesn’t really like because after she throws it, she’s going to let them keep it.
