Goodfellows follow a simple code
It’s helping the chap who’s bearing a load.
It’s bringing a smile to a youngster’s face, Restoring his trust in the human race.
It’s sharing the warmth of year-end joys,
With thousands of worthy girls and boys.
It’s helping the young and old to know
That someone cares when ill winds blow.
It’s smoothing the way when the road is rough. It’s understanding a neighbour’s plight,
And caring enough to do what’s right.
It’s living again the ancient law
When the Good Samaritan came and saw,
And did not pass on the other side
But offered his hand, a friend to guide.
This, in the Goodfellows’ Code is writ:
The best of life and the worth of it
Is not, how much can I get for me
But what I have done to be neighbourly.
