Every Goliath Has Its David

  • I've got a little bag of marbles and a catapult
    Wound around my fingers and I feel very small
    But I could make myself big if I wanted to
    There is nothing courageous about anything I do

    I'm trying to balance on an upturned milk crate
    As I fumble with my catapult
    And my hands are trembling as I try to aim it
    But every Goliath has its David

    And I know kung fu
    And I'm not afraid of you
    'Cause I might be small
    But I'm not a coward
    I've got puppy powers
    That I'm not afraid to use

    My fists are balled up in my pockets of my anorak
    And I've got a peashooter hidden behind my back
    All I need to do is sit and wait to be attacked
    If I thought that it would make me happy then I would

    Tie a handkerchief to a stick and surrender
    But that isn't what I want to do
    I will never live up to my expectations
    Every Goliath has its David

    And I know kung fu
    And I'm not afraid of you
    'Cause I might be small
    But I'm not a coward
    I've got puppy powers
    That I'm not afraid to use

    I'm trying to balance on an upturned milk crate
    As I fumble with my catapult
    And my hands are trembling as I try to aim it
    But every Goliath has its David

    And I know kung fu
    And I'm not afraid of you
    'Cause I might be small
    But I'm not a coward
    I've puppy powers
    That I'm not afraid to use Writer/s: JONTHAN OWEN, PETER HOBBS
