"MOMMY, I'M SCARED"

Intro:
Oo-oo oooo ooo
It will be a better World for a little girl

[Girl:]
Mommy, I'm scared by all that I see,
When we go out or watch the TV.
Peo-ple are mean, they fight and they lie - tell me why!

When I grow up and you are gone and I must go out all on my own,
What will I do, 'cause I am not strong at all!

[Chorus, sung by girl:]
Oh Mommy, it's so bad out there,
I think that I'll be really scared,
Can't you stay with me always
And keep the bad people away?
Can't the good men win instead
Like in the stories that we've read,
Can't it be a better World for a little girl?

Our city has so much dirt and noise,
Why do the wars kill all the boys?
When Bobby grows up will he have to go and die?
Mary's Dad left her and her Mom,
Who will take care of them from now on?
Will our Daddy stay? Are you also afraid at night?

[Chorus, sung by Mother:]
Oh darling, yes it's bad out there,
And sometimes even I am scared,
But Jesus has a special plan,
He holds the World within His hands.
Though it's now run by evil men,
Very soon His Love will win,
And it will be a better World for a little girl.

Oh darling, yes it's bad out there,
And sometimes even I am scared.

[Girl:]
But Jesus has a special plan,
He holds the World within His hands.
Though it's now run by evil men,
Very soon His Love will win,
And it will be a better World for a little girl.
[Mother:] For a little girl,
[Both:] For a little girl.
