"THE BIGGER THEY COME"

Chorus 1 [sung]
The bigger they come,
So strong on their own,
The finer the dust that's left
By the wind to be blown.
Don't be afraid to be weak,
Afraid to be small,
'Cause the bigger they come,
The harder, the harder they fall.

Verse 1 [Rap]
Little shepherd boy David
Wouldn't be intimidated
By the ironclad giant's size.
He said with authority,
"One with God is a majority.
Comin' at you right between the eyes."
The big important king
Said, "Go out & do your thing,
But take my armor for your own protection."
Old Saul was amazed,
Later jealous & enraged,
'Cause he never made the simple connection:

Chorus 1 [sung]
The bigger they come,
Standing so strong & tall,
The harder they crash
From Humpty Dumpty's wall.
It's such a long way down
To a low, slow crawl,
'Cause the bigger they come,
The harder, the harder they fall.

Verse 2 [Rap]
Empires of the world,
We've seen 'em come, we've seen 'em go
With the same old sad, sad story.
It's more blessed to be meek,
Not Babylonian or Greek,
With all their wealth & their fadin' glory.
And what do you know, the boy with the sling
Grew into a king,
And a man after God's own heart.
He didn't trust in his horses
Or his mighty armed forces,
But the only "How great Thou art!"

Chorus 3
The bigger they come,
Strong in their own eyes,
The greater the shock,
They're in for a surprise,
'Cause in the end
The meek inherit it all.
The bigger they come,
The harder, the harder they fall.

Music break:

Chorus 4
The bigger they come,
Mighty & high,
The greater the sound
Coming down, & that's why
I'm not afraid to be weak,
Like David, not Saul,
'Cause the bigger they come,
The harder, the harder they fall,
The harder they fall!
The harder they fall!
