I Shall Not Fear
I’m a roaring lion

Haven’t a million

Yes, my pen

Is in my den

It is my spear

I shall not fear

Words apt and raw

l roar a royal roar!

I’ m a roaring lion

Haven’t a million

Yes, my pen

Is in my den

It is my spear

I shall not fear

They go to the fields

My words my shields

Yes, my pen

Is in my den

It is my spear

I shall not fear

Rich with my words

Mightier than swords

Words apt and raw

l roar a royal roar!

I’m a roaring lion

Haven’t a million

I roar a royal roar!

With my pen l soar

I roar a royal ROARRR!!

I roar a royal ROARRR!!
