My Baby Is Afraid Of Sharks

My baby’s scared of the dark.
She says the night is full of monsters.
But when I press my body against hers.
I kiss her goodnight and I count to four.
My baby’s not scared of the dark any more.

My baby’s afraid of fire.
She see’s visions of flames and intensities*.
But when I call her name it makes her heart beat.
She see’s waves of water break’in onto the shore.
My baby doesn’t fear no fire, no more.

My baby’s scared of thunder.
She hates it when there are storms at night.
But when I hold her in my arms real tight.
She goes back to sleep and starts to snore.
My baby’s not scared of thunder anymore.

And then she’s like David**, Come here!
and stay with me, for a minute.
Take away my fear and take me where it is quite!
David, Come here.....and sing something easy.
Whisper it in my ear, make my place a safe place.

And my baby she’s scared of strangers.

Because once she was hit with a baseball bat.

But when i’m with her in her flat.

She doesn’t even bother putting a lock on the door.

My baby’s not scared of strangers anymore.

And my baby, she doesn’t like cars.

Because she thinks they’re a nuisance in this town.

But when I drive her around.

She doesn’t mind riding shotgun.

My baby thinks that’s fun!

And my baby she’s afraid of sharks.

She always thinks she saw a fin.

But when I tell her It’s a dolphin!

She comes back swimming faster then an alligator!

My baby’s not afraid of sharks anymore.
