Yo yo! This song is dedicated to Greg Barrett Shout out to him for confronting his bully Yeah So anybody out there that’s been bullied Like myself… Sometimes bullies don’t recognize that they’re being bullies… So you gotta let ‘em know. If you know someone that picks on kids just because they're smaller than he is THATS A BULLY And nobody likes a bully Yeah And if you know someone that's mean or cruel even when you tell them that it’s not cool THATS A BULLY (I know that’s right) And nobody likes a bully. (I know that’s right) Yeah VERSE 1 I knew a kid in middle school named Omar All the teachers told him that he wouldn't go far So all he did was lash out, punch people in the mouth And believe me this dude hit so hard He would target the kid with low self-esteem Move in like a vulture and selfishly Pretend that he was gonna help the team But if he didn’t get his way he would yell and scream And he was always mean - so don’t get in his way It could be something you wear, could be something you say Could be the look on your face , could be the time of the day,.. It was bound to get bad if you decided to stay And as the year went on a new kid came in He bullied omar he was bigger than him It was on that day that he understood fully That maybe its not so cool to be a bully. Hook Verse 2 LB Usually a bully will have a reason Sometimes more than 1, 2 or 3 when Lashin’ out and bein’ Nasty, angry, or the meanest person that you could ever think of No it ain’t cool, and your style ain’t the cleanest If you’re pickin’ on others as your way to get even But, try to understand their perspective Maybe there’s a reason why they took that direction? Maybe there isn’t, at least there is a question Like, why? That’s more difficult than just saying “Hi” My name is ______ wanna hang some time? I just wanna make a friend and you caught my attention We don’t have the whole story But, we can be wholesome and just ignore these Kids who just wanna to bring themselves glory Stand for yourself by standing for peace If you know someone that picks on kids just because they're smaller than he is THATS A BULLY And nobody likes a bully Yeah And if you know someone that's mean or cruel even when you tell them that it’s not cool THATS A BULLY (I know that’s right) And nobody likes a bully. (I know that’s right) Verse 3 I remember early mornings waiting up for the bus Hoping and praying I wouldn’t get punched in the gut By the neighborhood bully that would always walk past Asking everybody for their lunch time cash I was on the free program cause we was poor Couldn’t get quarter waters from the neighborhood store Saw a friend fall victim, til he said no more Used to hide in the bathroom on the third floor And in his eyes were tears ,so overcome with fear this is how a lot of kids spend their adolescent years They say to tell adults but what if they aren’t there And what if they do hear you and they don’t even care? The truth is a bully really does need help They lash out at you because they hate themselves And they might not even realize it it fully So you gotta let em know, yo you’re being a bully If you know someone that calls you names Picks on you, tryin’ to put you shame THATS A BULLY (I know that’s right) And nobody likes a bully. (I know that’s right) And if you know someone that pushes you around/ Makin’ others laugh at you even though you ain’t clown/ THATS A BULLY (I know that’s right) And nobody likes a bully. (I know that’s right) True story, yo.

When I come around everybody clears the way But after I pass they usually have something to say They assume that I’m evil or wild But I still greet strangers with a big old smile I’m like candy, because I’m incredibly sweet I got huge teeth and i’ve got big feet I’m a big guy but i show big love If you ask for it, I’d even give you a big hug I know my size can be scary to most Make you wanna scream (aahhh) but I’m hoping you won’t Get to know me and you see that I’m friendly and polite I may be big and scary but I’m really pretty nice Don’t be afraid I don't mean any harm There’s no need for alarm I may be big and scary but I’m really quite nice Don’t be afraid I don't mean any harm There’s no need for alarm I may be big and scary but I’m really quite nice I like to play outside but I don’t do sports I can’t catch well, my arms are too short I run and jump but I’m not so fast When I dive in the pool I make a really huge splash Don’t play hide and seek; I’m way too big to hide every single time I’m the first one they find So most days, I just sit down on the side Hoping that another kid will come and say hi You *might be afraid of my size at first sight But don’t be alarmed I rhyme, I don’t bite Just get to know me and take my advice I may be big and scary but im really pretty nice V3 Sometimes I wanna question why people stare I heard that was rude, but they don’t seem to care I want to say something but I don’t ever dare Cause I worry that if I approach they’ll get scared Blame me for something I would never do Say something about me that just wasn’t true My mom used to tell me “they’re just jealous of you” Cause you’re handsome, strong and intelligent too So when I’m excited I make lots of noise Knowing nothing in the world can stop my joy So if you happen to see me take a sec and think twice I may be big and scary but I’m really pretty nice People get scared when they see me at night I may be big and scary but I’m really quite nice But after they meet me they know I’m alright I may be big and scary but I’m really quite nice So if you pass judgment you should think twice I may be big and scary but I’m really quite nice Cause I can be your best friend if you act right I may be big and scary but I’m really quite nice goodnight

There was a little boy and his name was Dre Dre was about to go to the 3rd grade He Got dressed for the very first day And at breakfast he had a sad look on his face His mom asked, son what’s the matter? He said nothing but his expression got sadder First day of school brings all kinds of doubt There’s New people and a new school to figure out He said Mom, what if the new kids don’t like me ? They Have parties and ride bikes without me What if they’re mean, and they tease me Or if I struggle cause the work isn’t easy Man Mom knew just how to reply She said look at me and hold your head up high you got places to go and people to see But first things first, repeat after me! I’m good enough I’m smart enough I’m lovable and I’m capable And if I put my mind to it I know that I can do it Cause I’m lovable and I’m capable Yo, it seems so simple when you hear it But you gotta know it and believe it in your spirit People see me now and say “he’s so confident” When I was young it was “he’s so opposite” Cause They went left, and I went right I wrote songs about whatever I liked Not what would make me a success overnight Just Loving each part of myself, and appreciating what makes me unique putting it on beats to show it off to each person I meet And Now I know happiness is greatness And being normal is kinda overrated Your differences are what make you special So be yourself, dude, you don’t need no one to let you Look close Find the beauty in it all Face the world stand up tall And tell em I’m good enough I’m smart enough I’m lovable and I’m capable And if I put my mind to it I know that I can do it Cause I’m lovable and I’m capable Anything that you want to do Anything that you want to be It’s all possible all you got to do Is believe Anything that you want to do Anything that you want to be It’s all possible all you got to do Is believe I’m good enough I’m smart enough I’m lovable and I’m capable And if I put my mind to it I know that I can do it Cause I’m lovable and I’m capable

(Don’t let the bedbugs bite) 2x Its been a long day of chasing you around I know you hate it but its time to lay it down Set the toys in the toybox and close it tight I see you fighting it, but it’s time to say goodnight This mean Another adventure comes to an end But Before you know it you'll be back up playing with friends A nice warm bath and some milk to match Your favorite book in hand you got some z’s to catch Goodnight I see your Eyes getting heavy like a ton of bricks Dozing off in the whip from another trip, You try as you might to hold your head up, I see that stumble in your walk as you get up Time to lay it down, like tile, I see that last smile kiss you in the cheek tell you that I’ll see you in a while Hope you have the best dreams possible Cause seeing you happy is the best thing I can do Know when you get older you gonna be unstoppable Grow up to change the world and achieve the impossible Early to bed early to rise Makes a growing baby healthy and wise so close your eyes Goodnight Sleep tight Please sleep all night Baby, its about that time Rest your bones and close your eyes I’ll see ya tomorrow… (Goodnight sleep tight buddy) I’ll see ya tomorrow..
