There’s something in a simple hug
That always warms the heart;
It welcomes us back home
And makes it easier to part.
A hug’s a way to share the joy
And sad times we go through,
Or just a way for friends to say
They like you ’cause you’re you.
Hugs are meant for anyone
For whom we really care,
From your grandma or your neighbor
Or your cuddly teddy bear.
A hug is an amazing thing,
It’s just the perfect way
To show the love you’re feeling
But can’t find the words to say.
It’s funny how a little hug makes
everyone feel good;
In every place and language,
It’s always understood.
And hugs don’t need new equipment,
Special batteries or parts.
Just open up your arms
And then open up your hearts.
