You can be President Carter,
Maybe Idi Amin, or say Muhammed Ali
Make yourself Marlon Brando, Mickey Mouse,
Anyone you can see
Listen to all these songs
Tell yourself that it's wrong to even go your own way
Throw away your old cloak, put on your mask,
Be a Giant for a Day
Think to yourself you're in Paris,
Tel Aviv, Istanbul, or maybe London or Rome
Close your eyes to be there,
Even though you may be sitting at home.
Listen to all these songs
Tell yourself that it's wrong to even go your own way
Throw away your old cloak, put on your mask,
Be a Giant for a Day
Sitting in a Rolls Royce,
If it's the car of your choice or just a black Cadillac
And if you don't think these suit you,
Just a Porsche or a plain Pontiac
Listen to all these songs
Tell yourself that it's wrong to even go your own way
Throw away your old cloak, put on your mask,
Be a Giant for a Day
Giant for a day, Giant for a day
Put on your mask imagune you're a Giant for a
Giant for a day
You can think your Jack the Ripper,
Mama Belle the stripper, you can fight in the streets
You can be the French Connection, Harvey Oswald,
Or the boys on the beat
Listen to all these songs
Tell yourself that it's wrong to even go your own way
Throw away your old cloak, put on your mask,
Be a Giant for a Day
Listen to all these songs
Tell yourself that it's wrong to even go your own way
Throw away your old cloak, put on your mask,
Be a Giant for a Day
Giant for a day, Giant for a day
Put on your mask imagune you're a Giant for a
Giant for a day
