lyrics

Don’t be afraid of bugs baby they just creep around,
Don’t be afraid of graveyards either they’re just hallowed ground,
Don’t be afraid of the closet when I turn out the light,
Don’t be afraid of the creaking on the stairs at night,
You think the dawn’s not coming? Baby, wait and see.
Why be afraid of the dark when you should be afraid of me.

Don’t be afraid of the noises from your radio,
Don’t be afraid of the absence of a TV show,
Don’t be afraid of Jabberwocky baby, he ain’t real,
Don’t be afraid to tell the truth now that’s just how you feel,
You think the dawn’s not coming? Baby, wait and see:
Why be afraid of the dark when you should be afraid of me.

Don’t be afraid of bats baby, they won’t get in your hair,
Don’t be afraid to ride in cars babe, you’re not going anywhere,
Don’t be afraid of the rats that live inside of the wall,
Don’t be afraid your cat is dead (now he’s just sleeping that’s all),
You think the dawn’s not coming? Well just wait and see.
Why be afraid of the dark when you should be afraid of me.

Don’t be afraid of your dad he’s burried deep in the ground,
Don’t be afraid of that mailman who keeps hanging around,
Don’t be afraid of the hustlers they’re just punk ass kids,
Don’t be afraid of the neighbors that’s just the way that they is,
You think the dawn’s not coming? Then just wait and see.
Why be afraid of the dark when you should be afraid of me.

Don’t be afraid to scream babe, don’t be a-fraid to shout,
Don’t be afraid to eat your food now you just cut that shit out,
Don’t be afraid of the bathtub ‘cause you ain’t gonna drown,
Don’t be afraid of clowns, well, maybe you should be afraid of clowns, You think the dawn’s not coming? Just you, wait and see,
Why be afraid of the dark when you should be afraid of me.

about

The Jitters Worcester, Massachusetts

Hailing from Worcester MA; stitched together from fragments of sloppy bayou blues, sleazy rockabilly,fuzzed-out garage, and the creeping, half-dead remnants of nightmares; the musical talents of Ryan Hatt and Nik McCarter are tied to a slab and thrust into the heart of an electrical storm to breath again as The Jitters! ... more
