This is the story about Beanstalk Jack Lives with his mama in a little old shack He went out walking and he hasn't come back Don't you worry about Beanstalk Jack He goes up, up, up Up so high Up, up, up To the sky Up, up, up Don't know why, Now his head's in the clouds And he's fancy free Taller now than the tallest tree Head's in the clouds And he's fancy free

Daydream 02:09
Daydream by a stream Sitting in a sun beam Criss cross apple-sauce Wish the fish were ice cream Daydream by a stream Sitting in a sun beam Criss cross apple-sauce Wish the stones were snow cones Daydream by a stream Sitting in a sun beam Criss cross apple-sauce Wish the sky was cherry pie Daydream by a stream Sitting in a sun-beam Criss cross apple-sauce Wish the fish were ice cream Lazy Jack kicking back Wish I had a little snack Knick knack paddy whack Momma gave me chores to do I'm hiding and I won't go back

Here’s a big castle Here’s a big big door Like nothing you have ever seen before Look what i found It’s a hallowed ground It’s a beautiful beat it’s a brand new sound, There’s music in the air And the devil may care It’s a paradise it’s a land so fair It’s a big world It’s a big big world It’s a big world It’s a big world... There’s fountains of honey There’s piles of money There’s no rain here it’s always sunny It’s all so fancy And it’s all so fine It’s all expensive and none of it’s mine There’s music in the air And the devil may care It’s a paradise it’s a land so fair It’s a big world It’s a big big world It’s big world It’s a big big world The air smells sweet Every breath is a treat Forget my troubles i’ll be dancing in the street Knock knock knock Is there anybody there I’m looking for luck have you any to spare Knock knock knock Is there anybody there I’m looking for luck have you any to spare It’s a big world It’s a big big world It’s a big world It’s a big world
