The Lyrics

Brave Sir Robin ran away, bravely ran away, away
When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled
It's a trend that I wish would leave
Act like one's stronger than you'll be
When the threat you swear you'll leave
In seven pieces shows up, geez
Beat up mobsters in a fight
Scare the bear off with just your eyes
You'll never find a place to hide
It's always proved to be lies

Ev'ry time you get called to live up to your ruse
We always see your cowardice and film it for hard proof
You're brave 'til you're not
Brave 'til you're not

An easily disproven claim
Shove a toy spider in your face
And the mess you're soon to make is yours to deal with
Swear you've got the biggest balls
The first to say you'll "take 'em all"
But the quickness that you haul ass ain't surprisin'

The emergency call we make's not for bad dudes
It's to dampen your cowardice to leave a tree, it's true
You're brave 'til you're not
Brave 'til you're not, brave, brave

So quick to run, to run inside when danger's approachin', -pproachin'
I'm there to run with you if it's somethin', somethin' worth the freakin'
I wouldn't run inside if the thing that is approachin' is a
Single bee, friendly dog, you look loco

Ev'ry line on your blog is how you're Rambo 2
Not hard to read the cowardice between the lines, it's true

Fight or flight? No bet called which option you'll go to
We all have seen your cowardice, it's like a damn cartoon
You turn white, then a ball of clouds the shape of you's
Left when you leave from cowardice because some kid said "Boo!"

Brave 'til you're not (yellow streak's long)
Brave 'til you're not
Brave 'til you're not (that's the truth)
Brave 'til you're not
Brave 'til you're not (that's just cowardice)
Brave 'til you're not
Not brave, brave, brave, brave, yeah (sick of you)

Lies you spout off
Tape, might use
This cowardice
Is your truth

Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about and gallantly he chickened out
Bravely taking to his feet, he beat a very brave retreat
Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin!
