"When Giant Giants Attack!"

© 2007 by Andersen Silva

I watched the foxy news anchor,
     Couldn't believe my ears!
Our fair city was being invaded
     As I downed a couple more beers!

Then they showed some video footage,
     And there, to my surprise,
I saw beasty-looking giants
     Three and a half times my size!

CHORUS:
When giant giants attack,
     You don't know what they'll do.
Will they tie you in a sack?
     Will they play chess with you?
This giant giant attack
     Scares us beyond belief!
Lots of oversized monsters
     Will surely bring us to grief.


The leader of the giants
     Was a fearsome-looking thing.
But when he tore into O'Malley's,
     We all found out he could sing!

He belted out Madonna,
     Modern Lovers, Madness, too;
The karaoke crowd there
     Just did not know what to do.

CHORUS:
When giant giants attack,
     You may find they're just like us.
Just don't aggravate them,
     They may overturn your bus.
The giant giant attack
     Wasn't so scary after all.
Those big lugs want to party,
     So c'mon, give them a call!


I played softball with the giants;
     I did it on a dare.
Not a good idea,
     They kept knockin' it outta there.

They're great big homely creatures,
     But they're fun to be around.
The giant giant invasion
     Was really a mixer, I found!

CHORUS:
When giant giants attack,
     They might just want some friends.
They're socially inelegant;
     Attacks are just means to ends.
The giant giant attack
     Turned out happily after all.
Those big lugs want to party,
     So c'mon, give them a call!
