Verse 1 School was out for the new kid in town
The other kids, they gathered round
They called him names and they knocked him down
Mean as kids can be

I found him cryin all alone
His books all scattered where they'd been thrown
I picked him up and I walked him home
The new kid in town and me
Chorus A simple act of kindness can go a long, long way
Oh, an act of kindness can go a long, long way
Verse 2 I asked that kid to come over to play
Pretty soon it was every day
All that summer we spent that way
The new kid in town and me
Chorus A simple act of kindness can go a long, long way
Oh, an act of kindness can go a long, long way
Verse 3 Years went by, I watched him grow
Much to learn, so much he wanted to know
Top of the class, three years in a row
But he still made time for me
Chorus A simple act of kindness can go a long, long way
Oh, an act of kindness can go a long, long way
Bridge Then graduation day, it came around
All of us looked so good in our caps and gowns
He stood up on the stage and he read from a folded page
He said, "People, I've got something I want to say"
He said, "People, I've got something I want to say"
Verse 4 Let me tell you a story about a new kid in town
On the edge, with a plan going down
Would have ended it all but for the friend he found
Then he looked up and smiled at me
Chorus A simple act of kindness can go a long, long way
Oh, an act of kindness can go a long, long way

A simple act of kindness can go a long, long way
Oh, an act of kindness can go a long, long way
An act of kindness can go a long, long way
