                        "The Jolly Green Giant"
                (based on the Olympics' "Big Boy Pete",
                     by Don Harris and Dewey Terry;
                     parody lyrics by Lynn Easton)


	In duh valley of duh jolly...  (Ho - ho - ho)

	Wow!  [rimshot]

Verse 1:

	 F7              Bb          F7       C7
	Heard about the Jolly Green Giant  (potatoes)
	F7      Bb       F7    C7
	He's so big and mean  (artichoke hearts)
	    F7                             Bb
	He stands there laughin' with his hands on his hips
	             C7 [N.C.]
	And then he hits you with a can of beans

	guitar (doubled w/organ); played after each verse:

	(C7)                (F)
	 v   v   v       v     v
	         ^^^^^ triplet

Verse 2:

	He lives down there in his valley  (Brussels sprouts)
	The cat stands tall and green  (spinach)
	Well, he ain't no prize, and there's no women his size
	And that's why the cat's so mean

Bridge 1:

	E F [N.C.]
	    One day he left
	E F [N.C.]
	    His valley pad
	E F [N.C.]
	    I mean to say
	E F [N.C.]
	    This cat was mad
	E F [N.C.]
	    Now listen 'round
	E F [N.C.]
	    He wasn't gone long
	E F F# G [N.C.]                  C7
	         And then he ran into an Amazon

Verse 3:

	Well, this changed his whole complexion  (broccoli)
	He had never seen such a beautiful sight  (corn)
	Well, he looked at her
	And she looked at him
	And she almost passed out from fright

Bridge 2:

	He looked at her
	Thought, "what a dilly"
	He touched her once
	She slapped him silly
	This was something
	He had never sensed
	He looked at her
	As she commenced
	Now listen, pal
	This ain't no fluke
	"I can't see goin' with a big green kook"

Verse 4:

	You've heard about the Jolly Green Giant  (eggplant)
	Don't let his troubles cross your mind  (celery stalks)
	He couldn't get Sally, so went back to his valley
	The cat was color-blind

[repeat verse w/wordless vocal]

	  ... (carrots)
	  ... (canned beans)

[repeat guitar/organ riff; end cold on F]

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
