lyrics

If you're a hustler
Come and sell me your magic beans
I'll give you my prize cow
And I'll die beyond my means
I'll climb up to the heavens
And steal some golden eggs
I'll chop down that old beanstalk
Before the Big Man eats my legs

I'll live off of his money
Like a thief, a common crook
Before the real monsters come
And take half of what I took
They'll be on my doorstep
With a first and final demand:
"Give us your money, and make it quick!
It's for the good of all the land."

Fee Fie Foe Fum
I smell the blood of a tax-paying man
Be he live or be he dead
I'll grind his bones to make my bread

So keep your empty promises
Keep your magic beans
I'll just keep my cow
and I'll live within my means
I'll drink it's milk and munch on greens
Maybe raise a crop or two
I'll live my life and be myself
And with any luck, I'll make do
Oh, they'll still be on my doorstep
But I'll say that I have none
I might have had some money once
But now it's surely gone
Just go and see that Big Man in the sky
He's got a money laying hen
That you can suck until it's dry

Fee Fie Foe Fum
I smell the blood of a tax-paying man
Be he live or be he dead
I'll grind his bones to make my bread


Fee Fie Foe Fum
I smell the blood of a tax-paying man
Fee Fie Foe Fum
I smell the blood of a tax-paying man
Be he live or be he dead
I'll grind his bones to make my bread
I'll grind his bones to make my bread
I'll grind his bones to make my bread
I'll grind his bones to make my bread
I'll grind his bones to make my bread
