What are you thinking, right now this minute,
Is it a good thought with you in it?
Or is it a thought that you are not good enough?
You can’t do something because it’s too tough.
Are you thinking about having some fun
Playing with friends out in the sun?
Or are you thinking your friends won’t play
Because they were unkind to you yesterday
You might be thinking of your birthday treat
With all the presents and good things to eat
Or are you thinking your birthday is so far away
There is no point in getting excited today
There are good thoughts and there are bad
Some make you happy and others make you sad
If you are not sure if one is good
Does it make you feel better as it should
Try always to do your best
To think good thoughts above the rest
Whatever you are thinking, you can change that thought
Into your mind, a better one is easily brought
Although there are two ways to think
What is most important is their special link
For the more often you think in one way
Will affect what you do and what you say
Over time what you think is what you become
So think happy thoughts and you won’t be glum
Whatever you are thinking is important you know
For it will determine which way you will go
No matter what happens you always have the choice
So listen to your friendly, happy inner voice.
