He is long coming Mother
Yes, she's sold Jack and Mother

Love is a magic lifted Princess
I left you at the market Jack and Princess
Most of all blessings Giant
Love is a magic lifted (Reprise) Princess
Be quick! He is after me! Jack and Princess
Did he come this way? Giant and Princess
He will steal you too, will he? Giant
Be quick! He is after me! (Reprise) Jack and Princess
