Don't shout, when the lion's about.

Don't squawk, get up and walk.

Don't complain; you can't stop the rain.

Don't kick, you don't get to pick.

Don't run, if you are the one.

Don't blame, take better aim.

Don't fear, love is near.

Don't cry, let it go by.

Don't scoff, brush it off.

Don't fold, a winner is bold.

Don't cheat, admit defeat.

Don't insist, only persist.

Don't pose, admire the rose.

Don't whine, things are fine.

Don't wallow, pain is hollow.

Don't shove, follow the dove.
