Description
April Knoll wrote the lyrics and melody for this song about bullying and then asked 9 year old Aditi Iyer of India to sing it. Ed Millican and Melani Cholie added backing harmonies. The music and production is mine. April and I worked up the arrangement together. It's not really raggae but more reggae(ish) rock.

Lyrics
Intro

1st verse

You may think I’m under your spell

But you don’t know me that well

Soon you'll hear my rebel yell

I see your dirty looks from across the room

Go tell the others I’m the one you choose

My will can put up a fight

So you’re not gonna make me cry


Chorus

No match for me

I'm bigger than the words you use

Confidence and no fear attitude

No match for me

The stones you throw aren't getting through

‘Coz I’ve got the strength to beat you

Your bully is no match for me




2nd verse

You may think that we’re not the same

But just like you I feel pain

Everytime you say my name

I hear your laughter trying to make me weak

don’t fit the image that you want to see

My will can put up a fight

So you’re not gonna make me cry



Chorus

No match for me

I'm bigger than the words you use

Confidence and no fear attitude

No match for me

The stones you throw aren't getting through

‘Coz I’ve got the strength to beat you

Your bully is no match for me



Bridge

I've battled you before

Gonna settle up the score

You can end this war

I'm gonna win for sure

- sax solo-


3rd verse

You may think there's no other way

But you can make that change

It's never too late

The high you get from breaking others down

It's like the one you get from feeling proud

My will can put up a fight

So you’re not gonna make me cry


Chorus

No match for me

I'm bigger than the words you use

Confidence and no fear attitude

No match for me

The stones you throw aren't getting through

‘Coz I’ve got the strength to beat you

Your bully is no match for me

Outstanding! What a great vocal!!!! Powerful lyrics delivered through an equally powerful and emotional performance. Great production. The bass and organ really stand out. Killer drum sound. Your drum sounds are always excellent. But this recording seems even more open and live sounding than usual.
