Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water

Jack fell down and rolled around

With his lordship's daughter

The Count was grieved to see the girl behaving in that fashion

He grabbed the lout and kicked him out

To quell the young man's passion

Good old Jack and his poor mum said "what will happen now!"

And so, hell-bent to pay the rent,

Jack went to sell the cow

He sold the cow for magic beans, which really made his day

His mum went red and smacked his head

And threw the beans away

A beanstalk grew throughout the night that burst the stony ground

All came to see this magic tree

From miles and miles around

A hand came down and snatched poor Jill right off the garden floor

None could resist that giant fist

And Jill was seen no more

A Fee-Fi-Fo and then a Fum drowned out Jill's desperate cry

All looked to Jack to get her back

Who climbed towards the sky

"Though I have passed the stage up to which panto, if done competently and with a feeling for spectacle and glamour, is a source of undiluted delight, I found myself passing a very pleasant evening"
