When I feel mad, I hiss like a snake (ssss).
I roar like a bear (grrr). What a noise I make!
I stomp my feet, and I might just shout (Hey!).
But I don’t have to hurt anybody to let my anger out.
`Cause I use words, words make me strong
And I can tell everybody just what is wrong.
I can say “Stop!” (Stop, Stop). I can say “No!” (No).
I can say I need a turn, I can say leave me alone.
And when I’m mad, here’s how I know.
I’ve got some place in my body that tells me so.
Could be my throat (gulp!).
Could be my chest (cough!).
Could be my fists or my belly,
My body knows the best!
Our songs for children about peace and justice, resolving conflicts, and celebrating our global family are more important than ever in these troubled times. These Peace Resources are intended to help us all move forward with hope and tools for song and action as we work together to build a healthier, more peaceful world.
