Peace Songbook

Say You're Sorry

Music by Valerie Smalkin, lyrics by Valerie Leonhart Smalkin

This simple verse encourages taking responsibility for our own actions and making amends when we're wrong.


Parts 1 & 2: Say you're sorry if you hurt a friend,

With your words or something you have done.

Part 3: I'll say, "Sorry," when I know I'm wrong.

I'll say, "Sorry," then we'll get along.

Teach your students or audience Parts 1 & 3 and have them sing them together. It works!
