I met a giant,
While playing at the park,
I had to look up very high,
His hair was long and dark.

And to my surprise,
This giant was so very gentle,
His smile like the sunrise.
traveled all around the world,
We played on land and shore,
We made it back in just an hour,
But I wanted to play more.

But if I came back tomorrow,

Away above the rainbow.
