Lyrics
Sticks and stones

Blood and bones,

Go lock your door,

I'm strong I'm sure,

I'm big and tall,

You're not, you're small,

'Cause thirteen years of fighting tears are over,

are over,



Cause I'm Jack, the giant killer,

I'm Jack, the giant killer.



Don't make believe

Don't move, don't breathe,

Don't laugh at me,

Do you see me,

I'll knock you down

I'll break your crown

Yesterday I was afraid but that's over,

Yeah that's over.



Cause I'm Jack, the giant killer,

I'm Jack, the giant killer.



Daddy says there's nothing here,

Daddy tells me not to fear,

but Daddy's not what he appears,

There be giants here,



Cause I'm Jack, the giant killer,

I'm Jack, the giant killer.

There be giants here.

This is fantastic! I love this song and it's a great choice here. It really captures the madcap, determined rebellion against injustice that I have always loved about this film, and I love the way you show Matilda bringing all of the other kids with her in standing up to Miss Trunchbull. Just brilliant, thank you so so much. <333

Oh, this is great! Perfect song for Matilda and I love that you expanded it at the end to have Miss Honey and the other kids being inspired to stand up to the Trunchbull too.

This is so great, I love how you showed the ripple effect that one person making a stand can have!

Perfect song for this source. She's such a brave child and it's so encouraging to see her succeed against all her hardships.

Awww this is so cute! The lyrics fit so well for the movie and I love how you showed Matilda's fight against injustice and how she rallies all the other kids as well.
