Elijah, starting the first grade
Hit some trouble right away
Really, trouble hit him first
A bully's elbow, nasty words

Elijah told his parents he was scared
They told him not to be afraid
"Elijah, stand up for yourself
Tell that bully that you've had enough."

Next day first grade much the same
Elijah came home cross again
It didn't work, the same effect
Elijah wondered what was next

This is where Elijah's mom stepped in
She said, "I have a thought" to him
Suppose we ask his family here
It's up to you Elijah dear

Elijah took that thought to bed
Wednesday gave the go-ahead
The weekend came, and so did they
Away from school, the two boys played

Eddie's mom expressed regret
She felt her son didn't mean the threats
But no one ever looked beyond
A bully and his anger 'til now

Elijah's grooving on first grade
Because of the new pal he made
And Eddie's even having fun
And much more kind to everyone

All because a little man
Embraced his fear and made a friend
With arms of love, not retribution
So begins a revolution
