Going The Extra Mile

Lots of people go to work, and do their very best,

But there are individuals,  Who stand out from the rest,

They go above and beyond, They don't complain, 

But give a cheery smile,

When they have done all they can,

They go the extra mile. 

 

Going the extra mile,

Going the extra mile,

For dignity and respect,

Going the extra mile.

Carers, nurses, keyworkers   And volunteers too,

Not working because they have to,

But because it's the right thing to do,

Always showing Dignity and Respect, With a caring hand, and a smile,

When they have worked,  As hard as they can,

They then go the extra mile. 

 

Going the extra mile,

Going the extra mile,

For dignity and respect, 

Going the extra mile. 

Tutors and teachers, 

Professionals of all kinds,

Demonstrating Dignity,

To individuals that they find,

Treating others as you would yourself,

Is something that makes me smile,

When they've reached the end of the road,

They don't stop, They carry on to go the extra mile. 

 

Going the extra mile,

Going the extra mile,

For dignity and respect, 

Going the extra mile.  We need to spread the word, Everywhere we go, 

We are all equal,  So it's time to treat them so,

When you feel like you’re dying inside and its hard to carry on

a champion will be there a with smile, 

sharing a selfless caring act, 

Just simply, going the extra mile. 

Going the extra mile,

 

Going the extra mile,

For Dignity and respect,

Going the extra mile,

For Dignity and Respect,

Going the extra mile.
