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!
