Lyrics

Jack:
There are giants in the sky!
There are big tall terrible giants in the sky!

When you're way up high and you look below
At the world you've left and the things you know,
Little more than a glance is enough to show
You just how small you are.

When you're way up high and you're on your own
In a world like none that you've ever known,
Where the sky is lead and the earth is stone,
You're free to do
Whatever pleases you,
Exploring things you'd never dare
'Cause you don't care,
When suddenly there's a big tall terrible giant at the door.

Baker: A giant?

Jack:
A big tall terrible lady giant sweeping the floor.
And she gives you food
And she gives you rest,
And she draws you close
To her giant breast,
And you know things that you never knew before,
Not till the sky.

Only just when you've made a friend and all,
And you know she's big but you don't feel small,
Someone bigger than her comes along the all
To swallow you for lunch. And your heart is lead and your stomach stone
And you're really scared being all alone,
And it's then that you miss all the things you've known
And the world you've left and the little you own.
The fun is done.
You steal what you can and run!
And you scramble down
And you look below,
And the world you know
Begins to grow: The roof, the house, and your mother at the door.
The roof, the house, and the world you never thought to explore.
And you think of all of the things you've seen.
And you wish that you could live in between,
And you're back again,
Only different than before,
After the sky.

There are giants in the sky!
There are big tall terrible awesome scary
Wonderful giants in the sky!
