The Lyrics

little ditty...about jack and five beans
an american kid...reachin' out to his dreams
jackie's gonna deal...his mama's cow
some beans, what he wants...i'll get, is jackie's vow

swappin' out mama's cow...in sight, some magic peas
mama gave his hand a rap...what hell good are these ?
jackie said, "hey, ma...just back off...i made a savvy deal
risin' up, there'll be a stalk, and right on up, i'l steal

jackie say...oh yeah, i'll climb on
i'm after some thrills....don't grieve when i'm gone
oh yeah, i'll climb on
i'm after some thrills....don't grieve when i'm gone

jackie steps back...he grabs the stalk and starts mountin'
reaches the clouds...and robs the giant, clean
with the goose in hand...and the harp, singin' pretty
giant comes...and he is pissed off and mean

jackie say...oh yeah...i'll climb down
he's after to kill...he wishes to pound
oh yeah...i'll climb down
he's after to kill...he wishes to pound

gonna cut the stalk...hew the pole
watch the giant fall on down...and make a big hole
run for my life then...it seems a good plan
cause he'll hit the ground real soon
as hard as he can

little ditty...about jack and five beans
an american kid...reachin' out to his dreams
