Who’s Afraid Of Little Old Me?

The Who’s who of “Who’s that”
Is poised for the attack
But my bare hands paved their paths
You don’t get to tell me about sad

If you wanted me dead
You should have just said
Nothing makes me feel more alive

So I leap from the gallows
And I levitate down your street
Crash the party like a record scratch as I scream
“Who’s afraid of little old me?”
You should be

The scandal was contained
The bullet had just grazed
At all costs, keep your good name
You don’t get to tell me you feel bad

Is it a wonder I broke?
Let’s hear one more joke
Then we could all just laugh until I cry

So I leap from the gallows
And I levitate down your street
Crash the party like a record scratch as I scream
“Who’s afraid of little old me?”

I was tame, I was gentle
‘Til the circus life made me mean
“Don’t you worry folks
We took out all her teeth”
Who’s afraid of little old me?

Well, you should be (You should be)
You should be (You should be)
You should be
You should be (You should be)
You should be (You should be)
You should be

So tell me everything is not about me
But what if it is?
Then say they didn’t do it to hurt me
But what if they did?

I wanna snarl and show you
Just how disturbed this has made me
You wouldn’t last an hour
In the asylum where they raised me

So all you kids can sneak
Into my house with all the cobwebs
“I’m always drunk on my own tears”
Isn’t that what they all said?
That I’ll sue you if you step on my lawn
That I’m fearsome and I’m wretched and I’m wrong

Put narcotics into all of my songs
And that’s why you’re still singing along

So I leap from the gallows
And I levitate down your street
Crash the party like a wreckage scratch as I scream
Who’s afraid of little old me?

I was tame, I was gentle
‘Til the circus life made me mean
“Don’t you worry folks
We took out all her teeth”
Who’s afraid of little old me?

Well, you should be (You should be)
You should be (You should be)
You should be
‘Cause you lured me (You should be)
And you hurt me (You should be)
And you taught me

You caged me and then you called me crazy
I am what I am cause you trained me
So who’s afraid of me?
Who’s afraid of little old me?

Who’s afraid of little old me?
