I’m Scared

Lyrics

I’m scared of monsters (growl),
I’m scared of dogs (ruff),
I’m scared of nights so dark,
I’m even scared of frogs (ribbit).

I’m scared of giants (moan),
I’m scared of worms (yuck),
I’m scared of loud noises (boom),
I’m even scared I’ll catch germs (achoo)!

I wish I wasn’t so afraid,
I wish I wasn’t scared,
But every time I try to be brave,
I shudder, I shake and hide under my bed.

I’m scared of thunder (crash),
I’m scared of ghosts (boo),
I’m scared of spiders (creep),
But you know what I’m scared of the most?

I’m scared I’ll be all alone,
With no one to hug and no one to hold,
So, hug me now and I won’t be scared,
Won’t shudder, won’t shake or hide my bed.
(Now I feel better.)

Now I’m not scared of monsters (growl),
I’m not scared of dogs (ruff),
I’m not scared of night so dark,
But do you know what I’m still scared of?
(No! What?)
I’m still scared of frogs! (ribbit).

It’s not unusual for children to be frightened by various things in life. In this song, I try to reduce their fears, to sort of take off the edge in a sense, by introducing the idea of fun.

Mommy, Get off the Phone (Daddy Too)

Lyrics

Mommy, you’ve got so much to say.
Mommy, can’t it wait for another day?
I am just so tired of waiting all alone,
Please, Mommy, get off the phone.

Mommy, you said you’d read to me,
Mommy, I’ve been waiting patiently,
I am just so tired of waiting all alone,
Please, Mommy, get off the phone!

She talks when she works, she talks when she rests,
It’s really something to see.
She talks through the day and through the night,
Even when she’s kissing me.
Oh, Mother dear, before you’re through,
Your ear will turn to stone.
Please, Mommy, get off the phone!

Mommy, you’ve got so much to say,
Mommy, can’t it wait for another day?
I am just so tired of waiting all alone,
Please, Mommy, get off the phone.
Please, Mommy, get off the phone!

(Okay, daddies, now here’s one for you.)

Daddy, you’ve got so much to say,
Daddy, can’t it wait for another day?
I am just so tired of waiting all alone,
Please, Daddy, get off the phone!

He talks on the phone at work or at home,
And when I sit on his knee.
That funny thing attached to his ear,
Is really something to see.
Oh, Daddy dear, before you’re through,
I may be fully grown,
Please, Daddy, get off the phone!

Daddy, you’ve got so much to say,
Daddy, can’t it wait for another day?
I am just so tired of waiting all alone,
Please, Mom and Dad, get off the phone,
Please, Mom and Dad, get off the phone,
Hallelujah, they’re off the phone!

Brrring! Not again!

One teacher said that the song changed her relationship with her child for the better when she reduced her phone time and paid more attention to her.
