"Be A Lion" Lyrics

There is a place we'll go

Where there is mostly quiet

23 17 the-wiz-56

2015 Shanice Williams and David Alan Grier

Flowers and butterflies

A rainbow lives beside it

And from a velvet sky

A summer storm

You can feel the coolness in the air

But you're still warm

And then a mighty roar

Will start the sky to cryin'

But not even light'ning

Will be frightening my lion

And with no fear inside

No need to run

No need to hide

You're standing strong and tall

You're the bravest of them all

If on courage you must call

Then just keep on tryin'

And tryin', and tryin'

You're a lion

In your own way, be a lion

Come on be a lion

I am standing strong and tall

You're the bravest of them all

If on courage you must call

Keep on tryin'

And tryin', and tryin'

I'm a lion

In my own way

Be/I’m a lion
