[SFX SCHOOL BELL]

[KIDS EXCITEMENT PACKING UP AND HEADING OUT]


>> MR CHIPPER: Ok kids, line up, Penny, you’re the line leader, then Gertie, then Dani, then Dutch, then Piper, then Ziggy, then Miko … [trailing off]


>> PENNY

Dani! You did it! 


>> GERTIE

Did you get a sticker?


>> DANI

Yep! 


>> DUTCH

What about the x-ray vision part? Can you read minds now?


>> DANI

No … x-rays are just like pictures. And I didn’t even get one - they don’t do that every time. 


>> GERTIE

Uh Dani? … Look! What do I do?


>> DANI

Wow! You lost a tooth, too! 


WELCOME TO THE CLUB, 

THINGS ARE LOOKING UP, 

YOU LOST A TOOTH


your imagination

Could Make up a creation

That's nothing like the truth


Cause now I know

How this thing goes

Here's what I learned


I KNOW YOU CAN BE BRAVE

ALL THAT YOU NEED

BEGINS IN YOUR HEART

DON’T FEAR THE UNKNOWN

AND YOU CAN START 


LOOK FOR YOUR FRIENDS

AND YOUR FAMILY AND THEN

YOU CAN FIND COURAGE TIL THE END


TRUST YOURSELF AND YOU MIGHT FIND

THERE’S NOTHING STRONGER THAN WHAT’S INSIDE


>> DUTCH

But Dani, what happened at your big kid checkup? 


>> GERTIE

Yeah, tell us! 


>> DANI

Actually, it wasn’t any different than a regular check up! 


>> PENNY

So… no turkey, huh? 


>> DANI

No, but they had this awesome tool called… a saliva ejector!!


>> FRIENDS

COOL!!!


>> DANI

TRYING NEW THINGS 

CAN BE STRANGE

BUT IF YOU 


TAKE YOUR FEARS

AND REARRANGE THEM


LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE WHO KNOW

OR A DREAM DENTIST OR A FISH


>> FRIENDS

What?


>> DANI

Nevermind

THEY CAN HELP YOU BE BRAVE, TODAY


NO MATTER HOW SMALL

YOU MIGHT FEEL

YOU CAN FACE THE WORLD

LIKE IT’S NO BIG DEAL


SO LET YOURSELF TRY

YOU’LL FIND YOU CAN RELY

ON YOURSELF, FRIENDS AND FAMILY 


I LEARNED THAT 


COURAGE COMES FROM DEEP INSIDE

AND GROWS FROM EXPERIENCES TRIED. 


SO LET SCARED FEELINGS COME AND GO

LEARNING FROM THEM HELPS YOU GROW


SO WE CAN BE BRAVE

WE CAN BE STRONG

WE’LL SING IT PROUDLY

HEAR OUR SONG


WE KNOW WE WILL BE BRAVE


AND IT STARTS TODAY

YOU CAN BE

YOU CAN BE

BRAVE
