    Come in Anger, get out of the rain.
    Leave your coat on my chair.
    Come on, don't start up.
    Look, Love is over there.

    Peace is here too.
    And her true love, Gratitude.
    Stop all that yelling now,
    Drop all that attitude.

    Hope really looks nice tonight.
    And Grace is so giving.
    Take off that dark coat,
    Anger, this party is for the living.

    Forgiveness is lighting incense.
    Faith always plays that guitar.
    Stop it, Anger, don't get upset
    If Mercy offers you a star.

    Compassion is a great teacher,
    But Happiness just loves to dance.
    Heart wants to keep Ego out,
    And Desire cant keep on his pants!

    Anger, some of us know you well
    We know sometimes you get wild.
    But for this very moment, this party
    Could you just relax and smile?
