Seven Principles Song

Seven Principles Song, to the tune of Do Re Mi, sung at the beginning of each class

One, each person is important
Two, be kind in all you do
Three, be free to learn together
Four, and search for what is true
Five, each person needs a vote
Six, build a fair and peaceful world
Seven, take care of earth’s lifeboat
And that guides UUs in what we do
