Lyrics sample - 
Have you heard of the blame game?

It’s no fun to play.

Getting into a blame game,

Always spoils your day.

It can lead to arguments,

It can lead to fights.

But there is a special word

That helps to put things right.

‘Sorry’ is the word that mends

If you hurt a friend

And you know you’ve done wrong.

‘Sorry’ is the word to say

When you need a way

To make things ok.

‘Sorry’ is the word to say.
