A song about bullying. In the office, street, classroom and home. It's a sad one.


Pray for the end of the day J Gill

Do you know what it’s like to be bullied?
Do you know what it’s like to be pecked?
To feel sick in your gut every time you wake up
And to never know what’s coming next

It could be someone in the classroom
In the office or out on the street
At home he might tell you he loves you
Then he knocks you right off of your feet

And everyone’s laughing but you
And there’s nothing you feel you can say
So you shuffle around with your eyes on the ground
And pray for the end of the day

See the bully he really is clever
Makes you think he’s your very best friend
That you’re part of the gang, then bang
He’ll turn and destroy you again

And when you are just where they want you
They’ll kick you and spit in your face
They’ll make you feel small before others
They’ll make you feel you’re a disgrace

Repeat chorus

They’ll pick on the things that are different
Like y’ hair or your mum or your dad
‘Til you feel that life’s not worth living
That’s the worst feeling you ever had

See the bully he’s all about power
See the bully she’s all about fear
He’s a weak-minded soul
Needs to be in control
He’s been bullied himself down the years

Repeat chorus x2
