Most bullies are cowards
Most dictators are liars
Criminals and backstabbers
In the face of tough fighters
They run and hide under the beds
They fear reprisals and raids.
The best way to fight and defeat a bully
Is to use at least equal force. Be brave
Fight and punch like a fearless slave
Of a few centuries ago. Be plucky
‘Cause bullies lose all the time
And always pay for the crime.
I don’t condone violence
I believe in good defense
Be prepared for anything
Be nice and be ready to sting
Like the great Muhammad Ali
Like a strong and friendly bee.
Most bullies are afraid to fight
They run after the first roaring strike
I know, I was once young, that’s right
Be unafraid to tell them to take a hike
Safety and defense come first and heroism last
Always help others and learn from the past.
