I'm Making a List

I'm making a list of the things I must say
                          for politeness,
And goodness and kindness and gentleness,
                    sweetness and rightness:
                               Hello
                               Pardon me
                               How are you?
                               Excuse me
                               Bless you
                               May I?
                               Thank you
                               Goodbye
        If you know some that I've forgot,
            please stick them in your eye!
