lyrics

[Matthews]

I'm not afraid of the dark no more
I'm brave enough to sleep with the hallway light off
I'm not scared, it's not scary
The dark should be afraid of me

When I was smaller I'd be terrified
Of everything that bumped in the night and made a sound
It could be goblins, it could be fairies
That will take all of your teeth and replace them with a pound

Or scary clowns that make bad jokes
And stare you down till you laugh and hope
They'll go away
But they just stay

It could be vikings or even trifle
That will move all on its own as it wobbles fro and to
It could be homework stacked up higher than
Another pile of homework that I don't want to do

Or bright green goo that bounces round
But Robin Williams can't be found
To calm it down
It makes me frown

But Flubber's just a film, it's not real

So I'm not afraid of the dark no more
I'm brave enough to sleep with the hallway light off
I'm not scared, it's not scary
The dark should be afraid of me

Simon are you afraid of the dark?

[Panrucker]
I used to be, yeah!

[Matthews]
Can you tell me about it?

[Panrucker]
When I was smaller I would listen to
The sound of dinner jazz playing on my radio
To calm my mind from working overdrive
Imagining the monsters hidden down below

And when I had to take a wee
I'd pass the staircase speedily
So I did not spy what the darkness hides

[Matthew]
Oh my goodness, what was it?

[Panrucker]
But now I realise it's not real

[Matthew]
Oh phew!

[Panrucker]
So I'm not afraid of the dark no more
I'm brave enough to sleep with the hallway light off
I'm not scared it's not scary
The dark should be afraid of me

[Matthews]
When I get scared I shout
And clap my hands to freak the darkness out
When I get scared I roar
And stamp my feet to show the dark what for

And sometimes I like to whistle

[Whistling]

Let's sing it together Simon

[Panrucker]
Sure

[Both]
We're not afraid of the dark no more
We're brave enough to sleep with the hallway light off
We're not scared, enough's enough
The dark should be afraid of us
