Being a person of limited conversation and having nothing else to say the Giant heads home after visiting his friend, the ogre, after just seven years.

Lyrics

Giant:
Seven years ago I went away
To see a Cornish friend and have a stay
Seven years later, nothing left to say
Home again, home again, I’m on my way

I’ve had enough of Cornish blokes
Cornish ogres and Cornish jokes
Tired of talking to my Cornish friends
And eating nothing but Cornish hens
Home again, home again, home again, I’m on my way

Seven years ago I left my home
Forgot my toothbrush, forgot my comb
Got the seven-year-itch and the urge to roam
I headed down the highway like a rolling stone

Had enough of Cornish blokes
Cornish ogres and corn ball jokes
Tired of listening to my Cornish friends
And sleeping in their Cornish dens
Home again, home again, home again I’m on my way
