Life Doesn't Frighten Me


Shadows on the wall




Noises down the hall





Life doesn’t frighten me at all



Bad dogs barking Loud

Big ghosts in a cloud


Life doesn’t frighten me at all


Mean old Mother Goose

Lions on the loose

They don’t frighten me at all


Dragons breathing flame

On my counterpane

That doesn’t frighten me at all




I go boo

Make them shoo

I make fun

Way they run

I won’t cry

So they fly

I just smile

They go wild





Life doesn’t frighten me at all




Tough guys fight

All alone at night

Life doesn’t frighten me at all


Panthers in the park

Strangers in the dark

No, they don’t frighten me at all


That new classroom where

Boys all pull my hair

(Kissy little girls

With their hair in curls)

They don’t frighten me at all




Don’t show me frogs and snakes

And listen for my scream,

If I’m afraid at all

It’s only in my dreams.


Ive got a magic charm

That I keep up my sleeve,

I can walk the ocean floor

And never have to breathe.


Life doesn’t frighten me at all

Not at all

Not at all.


Life doesn’t frighten me at all.   



Jean-Michel Basquiat  and  Maya Angelou
