It's wondrous what a hug can do
A hug can cheer you when you're blue
A hug can say, "I love you so,"
Or, "I hate to see you go."
A hug is "Welcome back again."
And "Great to see you! Where you been?"
A hug can soothe a small child's pain
And bring a rainbow after rain
The hug, there's just no doubt about it
We scarcely could survive without it
A hug delights and warms and charms
It must be why God gave us arms
Hugs are great for fathers and mothers
Sweet for sisters, swell for brothers
And chances are your favorite aunts
Love them more than potted plants
Kittens crave them, puppies love them
Heads of states are not above them
A hug can break the language barrier
And make your travel so much merrier
No need to fret about your store of 'em
The more you give
the more there are of 'em
So stretch those arms without delay
