Tricky People!

Can't Fool Me!


Lyrics

Verse 1
What if you see a guy in town
Who wants his puppy found?
What do you do when he asks for help
And no one is around?

Take three steps back
Take three steps back
That's how you can begin
Take three steps back
Take three steps back
Then run like the wind

Chorus 1
Tricky People,
Tricky, Tricky People
They look like you and me
Tricky People,
Tricky, Tricky People
Are bent where you can't see

Verse 2
What if a guy shows you a badge
And he says he's a cop?
Now, what should you do?
How do you check?
Before you go - you stop!


Call 9-1-1
Or call "0"
That's how you can begin
And if they say "No!"
Take three steps back,
Then run like the wind

Chorus 1
Tricky People
Tricky, Tricky People
They look like you and me
Tricky People
Tricky, Tricky People
Are bent where you can't see

Verse 3
What if a guy gives you some cash
If you'll go with him now?
What if the little voice inside of you
Says "No sir!," "No way!," "No how!"

Take three steps back
Take three steps back
That's how you can begin
Take three steps back
Take three steps back

Chorus 2
Tricky People, Tricky, Tricky People
Have pain down in their heart
They're Tricky People
They can't fool me
"'Cause I'm too smart

About the song
Tricky People!

Tricky People! is an upbeat, classic rock and roll tune. It is the best way to catch children's attention and translate a subject that brings up fear to one of empowerment. This approach to the tricks that adults use is a far cry from the "big, dark stranger on a corner" that children often conjure up when left to their own imaginations. This song had two main objectives: (1) to help children recognize the tricks used by Tricky People and (2) to instruct them on what to do if they are ever approached by a Tricky Person. The engaging "sounds-like-Mom" singer instructs kids about Tricky People using four typical scenarios (tricks) in a completely non-fearful way. She definitely helps make the safety rules for dealing with the tricks of Tricky People unforgettable.

"Take three steps back and run like the wind!"
- Lyrics from the song, Tricky People!

"Your children learn simple lyrics attached to memorable songs. They are left with a joyous image of running like the wind... but in a time of crisis these lyrics come right back and they act on them to stay safe."
