From the recording "The Selfish Giant"
At last the Giant understands.
The giant’s heart melted
He looked at the scene
The little boy crying his doleful keen
The North Wind howled so harsh and mean
“How selfish,” he said, “how selfish I’ve been”
Now I can see why Spring would not come
How many months now it seems like so long
I’ll take my great ax, I’ll knock this wall down
I’m really so sorry for what I have done
