STRANGERS

If a great big ugly guy walks by

While you are playing in your yard

And he sez “Hey Little Kid!  You want a

Stick of gum or a cho’late bar?

Would you take it from him?    NOOO!

What if it’s your favorite?    NOOO!

What if he has ice cream?    NOOO!

And we know why!

 

Cho: Cause he’s a stranger!  Someone we don’t know!

He’s a stranger, he might be nice, but even so

We follow safe advice

So t’strangers we say,    NOOO!

 

If a pretty lady’s at your door

She rings your bell, you’re home alone

And she says, “Hey Little Kid!  I’m lost!

Please let me in to use your phone!

Would you let her in?    NOOO!

What if she is smiling?    NOOO!

What if she looks like a movie star?    NOOO!

What if she says she’d been lost for forty-two days

and hasn’t had anything to eat in three weeks

and she needs a great lookin’ little kid like you

to let her in right now to use the phone

Would you do it?    NOOO!

And we know why!

 

Cause she’s a stranger!  Someone we don’t know!

She’s a stranger, she might be nice, but even so

We follow safe advice

So t’strangers we say,    NOOO!

 

Now LET me get this straight, a stranger’s

ANYONE I don’t know, so I

SHOULDN’T talk to strangers or go

OFF alone with someone who I

DON’T know because strangers are not

ALWAYS ugly looking sometimes

THEY act nice and friendly but they’re

STILL a stranger even if I

THINK I might have seen them I should

NEVER let them get too close

and we know why!

 

Cause they’re a stranger!  Someone we don’t know!

They’re a stranger, they might be nice, and even so

We follow safe advice,

So t’strangers we say    NOOO!

To strangers we say    NOOO!

To strangers we say    NOOO!
