When I'm afraid
Of the dark at nightMy granddaddy's big handsHold me tight
When I am sadAnd feeling grayMy auntie's smileBrightens up my day
When I am lonelyWith no one to careMy friend is thereWith funny stories to share
When I'm worriedAnd don't know what to doMy mama's comforting wordsHelp to see me through
I can call my daddyWhen I'm in a mess
If I need to talkMy teacher is the best
My brother is the oneWhen I want to have fun
And when I need someone to careMy sister is always there
