Something good to start the new school year.
Home of the brave and the land of the free;
a new school year and it’s beckoning bright.
This year I will not let Bob bully me.

Each year with Bob would be a bully spree;
taunting me teasing me picking a fight.
Home of the brave and the land of the free.

I’d see him come and at once I would flee;
It was a cowardly pitiful sight.
This year I will not let Bob bully me.

He’d push and shove me and do it with glee;
bad to be traumatized with utter fright.
Home of the brave and the land of the free.

Facing a challenge with courage is key;
I am afraid yet I know it is right.
This year I will not let Bob bully me.

Now I’m alive and as good as can be;
I’m standing tall and I savor the height.
Home of the brave and the land of the free;
this year I will not let Bob bully me.
