Chorus:
No! To Tyranny
He shall not have his pleasure
For Goodness shall prevail!

No! To Villainy!
To save our greatest treasure
In this we cannot...
Princess:
In this we cannot fail
King:
My Dearest Daughter
Will no-one save her?

Half my Kingdom!
Chorus:
He offers half his Kingdom!
Will no-one dare to...
Princess:
Save me from the...
Chorus:
Colossus?
Hero:
I Will!

Now all the World is waiting - Ho!
A Maiden I must save - the world is waiting
No time for hesitating

If only I were brave - for Now, is the Hour
Yes I was made the hero - Hero!
It's my call - that's my cue! All eyes on you
It's everything or nothing - Go!
King:
Look out! He's coming through
Hero:
I'll save you princess
Giant:
puny peasants!
Move over!!
Chorus:
Behold the Giant
We stand our ground defiant
Giant:
the princess shall be mine

Oh yes - she will be mine
Ha Ha Ha - who's next??!
Hero:
Hey - you up there with the b-beard!

Oh I was made of Freedom
Nobody pulls my strings
And I can equal any man
In all the grown-up things
Giant:
Wooaarrgh!
Hero:
Yes I was made of mischief
They tell me I must learn
But nothing is coincidence
Whichever way I turn

And I will do or die
For I know one thing after all
The bigger any giant comes
The harder he may fall
Princess:
My Hero!
He saved me
My hero-my-hero-my-hero-my-hero-my-hero!
Chorus:
Hail the hero
King:
At last we have a hero
Chamberlain:
Sire I'm told he is only a-a-a peasant
Chorus:
Only a peasant
He's nothing but a peasant!
Princess:
He's - so daring and handsome and charming
King:
But a peasant - how very alarming
Princess:
He's so clever and brave and heroic
King:
But a peasant - they're all Protozoic
o-y!

All together

All together we dance and play
We're bright and gay - a loud Hooray!
All together we greet the day
All:
Colossus is no more!
All together we celebrate
The very hills reverberate
To the heavens we elevate
The Hero we adore
Ladies:
All of a sudden the world is right
The sun is up and shining bright
All of a sudden the birds can sing
And Spring is at the door...
King and Princess:
All together in harmony
A chorus ring, a symphony
All together the Angels sing
The Giant is no more!!
