WAS ST PAT SCARED?

St. Pat drove the snakes out of Ireland

Tho' snakes are God's creatures too

And they probably scared St Patrick a bit

And they might even frighten you

But getting rid of all the snakes

Won't make your fear go away

It puts it off for awhile

But your fear will come back some day, some daaaay

Your fear will come back some day

 

So you go somewhere else and get frightened

Maybe by spiders this time

You can crush all the spiders with books, y'know

But killing them's kind of a crime.

Cause all life is sacred

In my heart, I know it's true

These animals just are trying their best

T'stay alive like we do, we dooo

To stay alive like we do.

 

When you kill the things you're scared of

You loose what you need to explore

To learn t'grow and be stronger

To stop being scared like before

So if you hate spiders and snakes

There's one thing that is clear

If you kill em or crush em or chase em away

You never get rid of your fear, your fear

No, you never get rid of your fear.

 

Those creatures are here for a reason

God made em and He's no fool

We can't avoid Life's lessons

We learn that at home and in school.

So don't copy old St Patrick

Who never conquered his fear

God didn't make this world for just us

People living here, my dear,  noooo!

It's for all the creatures here!

 

St Patrick just felt frightened of

What us other creatures do

So give us a break!  Don't be frightened of me

And I won't be frightened of you, of youuu, nooo!

Give us a break!  Don't be frightened of me

And I won't be frightened of you!
