Life Doesnít Frighten Me

Shadows on the wall

Noises down the hall

Life doesnít frighten me at all

 

Bad dogs barking loud

Big ghosts in a cloud

Life doesnít frighten me at all

 

Mean old Mother Goose

Lions on the loose

They donít frighten me at all

 

Dragons breathing flame

On my counterpane

That doesnít frighten me at all.

 

I go boo

Make them shoo

I make fun

Way they run

I wonít cry

So they fly

I just smile

They go wild

 

Life doesnít frighten me at all.

 

Tough guys fight

All alone at night

Life doesnít frighten me at all.

 

Panthers in the park

Strangers in the dark

No, they donít frighten me at all.

 

That new classroom where

Boys all pull my hair

(Kissy little girls

With their hair in curls)

They donít frighten me at all.

 

Donít show me frogs and snakes

And listen for my scream,

If Iím afraid at all

Itís only in my dreams.

 

Iíve got a magic charm

That I keep up my sleeve

I can walk the ocean floor

And never have to breathe.

 

Life doesnít frighten me at all

Not at all

Not at all.

 

Life doesnít frighten me at all.
