Go the Second Mile


Go the Second Mile

35395, Children’s Songbook, Go the Second Mile, 167

When there is a task to do, do it with a smile.
Do more than you are asked to do and go the second mile.

In your work and in your play, try it for a while.
You’ll find that you’ll be happy when you go the second mile.
