They Might Be Giants

  • Hang on
    Hang on tight

    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants
    They might be rain
    They might be heat
    They might be frying up a stalk of wheat

    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants
    They might be brain
    They might be washed
    They might be Dr. Spock's back-up band

    To make the merry-go-round go faster
    So that everyone needs to hang on tighter
    Just to keep from being thrown to the wolves

    Tabloid footprints in your hair
    Tabloid footprints everywhere
    We can't be silent
    'Cause they might be giants
    And what are we going to do unless they are

    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants
    They might be bald
    They might be snow
    They might be something else in the snow

    Hang on tight

    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants
    They might be fake
    They might be lies
    They might be big, big, fake, fake lies

    Tabloid footprints in your hair
    Tabloid footprints everywhere
    We can't be silent
    'Cause they might be giants
    And what are we going to do unless they are

    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants (boy)

    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants (boy)

    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants (boy)

    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants (boy)
    They might be giants (boy) Writer/s: JOHN FLANSBURGH, JOHN LINNELL, JOHN C. FLANSBURGH, JOHN S. LINNELL

  • Fred from Laurel, MdThe self-introductory song idea also brings to mind "We" by The Roches ("We are Meggie and Terre and Suzzy/Meggie and Terre and Suzzy Roche/We don't give out our ages/And we don't give out our phone numbers/ ..."). Hey, there's no Roches songs on this site! We've got to remedy that!
