Fee Fi Fo Fum - The Music

The Soundtrack



Solo/Duet

Have you heard the story
About a boy called Jack?
He climbed up a beanstalk
And did not look back,
Even though there were giants in the clouds.

Group 1 join in
He was in a pickle
When he sold his cow for beans.
He thought that they were magical
But his mother was not pleased,
Group 2 join in
So she threw them out the window.
But what she didn’t know
Was that they would
(+Group 3) Grow and
(+Group 4) Grow and
(+Group 5) Grow and grow...
Grow into a beanstalk
About a hundred metres high,
And Jack would bravely climb it
’Til he reached the sky__.

Walk a mean walk, talk a mean talk.
Now it’s time to climb the beanstalk!
(x2)
Have you heard the story... (etc.)

Chor. Left Giants in the clouds.

Jack

Getting up at 4:30 isn’t easy,
’Cos I’m hardly feeling bright and breezy.
My hair’s a mess,
Got sleep in my eyes.
The sun’s not even started to rise.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, it’s hard to endure.
My breath is foul, it smells like manure!

Group

(fanning noses) Phwoar!
And now I feel a little queasy...
Getting up at 4:30 isn’t easy.

Mother

(spoken) Jack? That cow isn’t gonna
milk itself, you know.
[All repeat from the top.]


Brewster

Time to give the 5 o’ clock alarm.
It’s another morning on the farm.

Jack

Time for me to earn my keep
And play my part.
So much to do I really don’t know
Where to start.

Sheep/Pigs

Maybe you should start with good ol’ Daisy.
She’s been a little lazy for a week or two.

Jack

I’m sick and tired of waiting
For her to start lactating!

Sheep/Pigs

Better fi nd another job to do.

All

You’ve got to:
Plant the seeds and pull the weeds
And feed all the chickens.
Livin’ on a farm is quite slim pickin’s.
Time to muck the pigs out.
If only you could get out
Of cleaning up the hay and piggy do,
Doo, do-doo, doo, dooo!

Pigs

Oink, oink, oink.

Sheep

Yee hah!

Chorus L

Just keep calm and cut the corn.

Chorus R

A farmer’s work is never done.

Chorus L

There’s a job for everyone.

Chorus R

Shear the sheep and spin the yarn.

Chorus L

Pack and stack and fi ll the barn.

All

It’s a hard life - down on the farm.

All

Come on Daisy, you’re his little cash cow!
Time to take the bull by the horns right now.
He’s poor as a church mouse,
His piggy bank’s run dry.
Come on Daisy, give it one more try.

Daisy

Moo

Jack

This is hopeless!

All

If you don’t give us milk,
You will have to go!

Jack

Guess I’ll still be trying
’Til the cows come home!

All

Plant the seeds and pull the weeds
And feed all the chickens.
Livin’ on a farm is quite slim pickin’s.
There’s no use complaining.
At least it isn’t raining...

Sheep/Pigs

Uh-Oh...

All

Oh well, shucks,
It’s nice weather for ducks!

Ducks

Quack, quack, quack...

Jack

I used to take vacations,
Had higher aspirations
Than being stuck in heaps of
Smelly dung!

Ducks

Phwoar!

Sheep

Yee hah!

Chorus L

Just keep calm and cut the corn.

Chorus R

A farmer’s work is never done... (etc.)


All

Daisy, Daisy, give me some milk, do try.
Don’t be lazy; don’t tell me you’ve gone dry!
This just can’t continue.
I know you’ve got it in you,
So Daisy please, a drop you must squeeze
Or we’ll have to say goodbye.

Jack

She needs a bit of encouragement.
Could everybody help?


All

Off we go to market
To sell our Daisy cow,
Down the path and
Through the field
Then on the road to town.
Off we go to market
As quick as we can be.
Think of all the lovely things
That we are gonna see.
There might be...

Chorus L

Quiches ’n’ pies of quite a size
To feed the hungry farmers.

Chorus R

Tables ’n’ chairs, apples ’n’ pears. Gimme a bunch of bananas!

Chorus L

Carrots ’n’ peas, bread ’n’ cheese Tasty as can be.

All

All set out by traders there
For everyone to see.
There might be...

Chorus R

Knick knacks ‘n’ bric-a-brack
And second hand pyjamas.

Chorus L

Trousers ’n’ skirts, colourful shirts
That come from the Bahamas.

Chorus R

Slippers ’n’ boots, dresses ’n’ suits, Stylish as can be.

All

All set out by traders there
For everyone to see.
Off we go to market... (etc.)

All

Have a banana! (shout) Oi!


Mother

Beans? Beans? Three measly
beans? There may have been worse
crimes, but these are diffi cult times.
Beans? How could you be so foolish?

All

How could you be so foolish?
How could you be so dim?
You gave away poor Daisy.
What a crazy whim!
Where’s the money, Jack?
You shouldn’t have come back with
Beans, beans, three measly beans.
There may have been worse crimes
But these are diffi cult times.
Beans, beans, beans…
spoken) How could you be so stupid?

Jack

I think I should head for the hills.
Our cupboard is bare
And it seems we don’t have a prayer.
Beans won’t pay the bills!

All

How could you be so stupid?
How could you be so rash?
Cos now you can’t go shopping.
Should have got some cash!
Where’s the money, Jack?
You shouldn’t have come back with
Beans, beans, three measly beans.
There may have been worse crimes
But these are diffi cult times.
Beans, beans, beans…

Mother

Your behaviour is troubling. You know we
are struggling. Bills to pay, and all you can
say is “Here’s a few beans”? Well give them
to me! Watch them go out of the window!


Jack

Oh what a gullible fool I am,
Led like a silly little lamb.
The wool was pulled over my eyes.
I didn’t even realise.
What a gullible fool I am.

Goodnight to you all, and this I pray
I hope tomorrow brings a better day.


Jack

Jack, we never doubted you.
Oh Jack, you know what you must do.
Jack, this is your destiny.

Have you heard the story
About a boy called Jack?
He climbed up a beanstalk
And did not look back.
Oh, Jack!

Climb, climb, climb the beanstalk,
Climb, climb, climb.
Climb, climb, climb the beanstalk
All the way to the top.

Come on Jack, don’t look back.
The story needs a happy ending.
Come on Jack, keep ascending.

Climb, climb, climb the beanstalk... (etc.)

Jack you’ve always been a dreamer,
Your head up in the clouds.
Now hold your head up proud.
You’ve got the world at your feet
So reach for the sky!

Climb, climb, climb the beanstalk... (etc.)

Come on Jack, don’t look back... (etc.)

(spoken)
Climb, climb, climb the beanstalk
Climb, climb, climb the beanstalk
Climb, climb, climb the beanstalk
(sung)
All the way to the top! Yes!


Giant

Fee, fi e, fo, fum!
I smell the blood of an Englishman.
Be he alive or be he dead,
I’ll grind his bones to make my bread.

All

Stay out of sight, Jack,
And don’t make a sound.
You will be eaten if you are found!
Who could foretell:
Giants have a keen sense of smell.

Mrs. Giant

You’re imagining things! Go and
have a wash, and I’ll get your breakfast.
[Giant & Chor. L., and Mrs. Giant & Chor. R.
sing simultaneously.]

Giant/Chorus R

Fee, fi e, fo, fum!
Fee, fi e, fo__, fum!
Be you alive, or be you dead,
He’ll grind your bones to make his bread.

Mrs Giant/Chorus R

Stay out of sight, Jack... (etc.)
[repeat section in higher key]

Giant

(spoken) Be he alive or be he dead,
(sung) I’ll grind his bones to make my bread.

A haunting tune of hope I sing.
Peaceful slumber’s what I bring
With beautiful music,
Played__ on golden strings.

The strings of my harp are aching
And my heart is breaking.
Day and night I play this tune.
I pray my knight will be here soon
To rescue me.

Peaceful slumber’s what she brings
With beautiful music,
Played__ on golden strings.

Climb back down the beanstalk,
Climb back down.
Climb back down the beanstalk,
All the way to the ground.

To make his bread.

All the way to the ground.
