In a small city, in a distant country,

In a small room, lived

a little tailor.

Who worked happily in his

sewing, all day long.

MerJames are sold!

MerJames are sold!

Jams for sale, and

he's so hungry.

Mmm, very good!

This is very good too.

It's wonderful!

But the little tailor wanted

only a very small jar of jam,

and the woman had climbed

all those stairs uselessly.

Aha!

One, two, three, four,

five, six, seven.

Seven of a single blow!

The little tailor wanted

everyone to know...

that he had killed seven

flies in a single blow,

so he decided to

write on his belt:

Seven of a single blow!

The little tailor, proud of having

killed seven flies in a single blow,

He decided to go out and try

his luck in the big city.

Night fell, and the

doors were closed.

The King of that city

was very worried,

because two giants had

been scaring people,

and could not find anyone

with strength to catch them.

The people of the city

were surprised to read...

that the little tailor had

killed seven of a single blow.

They thought he had

killed seven men.

Someone of such bravery would

be able to capture the giants.

A knight had been sent

to capture the giants,

and had returned defeated.

The soldier ran to tell the King the

news about the tailor's courage.

The king asked the tailor if

he could capture the giants,

and the little tailor told

him that it was nothing,

for someone who had killed

seven in a single blow.

Then the King put the little tailor

at the command of the soldiers,

and ordered him to go

and capture the giants.

A messenger ran to the city carrying the

news of the triumph of the little tailor.

And everyone went to see the giants,

brought to the city as prisoners.

And so, the dashing little tailor

got married to the princess,

and they lived happily ever after.
