"Manners" - Our Manaiakalani Film Festival Entry.

Last term in literacy we were looking at some important people and events in history and the impact they have had on the world. We looked at Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela, and events such as the Springbok Tour of NZ. A message that came through what we were learning, was that people are equal. We shouldn't discriminate against others just because they are different. We used this as the theme for our rap rewriting the lyrics for the song "Manners" by Chiddy Bang.

Bababababa
There is no one like me
Th-th-there is no one like me, like me


Ma-ma-manners take a second look and you'll see (hey we pretty much amazing)
There is no one like me [x2] (mind your manners)


And all the people should be raising their hands up
Work together make sure that you stand up
I never thought I would be able to shine out   
           But believing in me took away my doubts
Yeah I be keeping it true as long as I could ‘made me feel brand new
Like, like how cool are we
You gotta be like Martin Luther King
Don’t get rejected, be your yourself be accepted
I have dream I can shine like a beam
Of light.  Tell a hater think of better
Don’t put us down but mind your manners


Manners take a second look and you'll see (and you'll see)
There is no one like me (like me)
Th-th-there is no one like me (like me l-l-l-l-like me)


Manners you better reconsider (consider)
Cause you will never do better (do better)
There is no one like me, like me (there's no one like one) (shouts)
(See this is etiquette right here)


Badabababab badabababa (mind your manners)
There is no one like me


Look at Mandela
From South Africa, Was a black lawyer
A surprise WALA And he fought for rights
For equality
Became president, stopped inequality
He helped to show us
How not to be a coward
Their view’s  not true
A stereotype that’s skewed
There’s not any proof
So why not be politeful. Without racism
The world would be delightful


Work hard, you want to make your Mum proud
Everybody is the best let me advise you
Why because I’m feeling incredible
You can achieve anything you set your mind to


I am inspired by people with integrity
People who are honest and speak truthfully
So tell a hater  think better
Don’t put us down but mind your manners!


Manners take a second look and you'll see
There is no one like me
Th-th-there is no one like me


(Mind your manners)
