The Lyrics

he got only six beans
only six beans
he was taken so
cause he was too dumb
he fell for stuff
when he should have just said no

our calf, cash would bring
we need many things
so off my son did go
but he was too dumb
the deal was muffed
now we have no calf, you know

and oh, how i lost my cool so fast
it shouldn't have happened, my friend
cause he was a mere...child...who liked beans !
i raged, i fear, at him

he got only six beans
only six beans
soon, that beanstalk did grow
and on it, he clung
and climbed above
and i was the last to know

the giants all live
on clouds, so vast
they'll never treat us as friends
but i'm in good cheer
cause of six beans
we've gotten rich since then

he got only six beans
only six beans
oh...and eggs made of gold
cause he stole the hen
that laid such stuff
the giant's too dumb to know
yes, he stole the hen
that laid such stuff
the giant's too dumb to know
