Gonna Build A Mountain - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics

1: i'm gonna build a mountain, from a little hill.
I'm gonna build a mountain, least i hope i will.
I'm gonna build a mountain, i'm gonna build it high.
I don't know how i'm gonna do it, only know i'm gonna try.
2: i'm gonna build a daydream, from a little hope.
I'm gonna push the daydream, up that mountain slope.
I'm gonna build a daydream, woah, i'm gonna see it through.
Gonna build a mountain and a daydream,
Gonna make 'em both come true.
3: i'm gonna build a heaven, as a will someday,
And the lord sends ga-bri-el to take me away.
Woah, i wanna fine young son, to take my place.
I'll leave my son in my heaven on earth with the good lord's grace.
4: i'm gonna build a mountain, from a little hill.
I'm gonna build a mountain, least i hope i will.
I'm gonna build a mountain, yeah, gonna see it through.
Gonna build a mountain and a daydream,
Gonna make 'em both come true.
5: i'm gonna build a daydream, from a little hope.
I'm gonna push the daydream, up that mountain slope.
I'm gonna build a daydream, woah, i'm gonna see it through,
Gonna build a mountain and a daydream,
Gonna make 'em both come true.
6: i wanna build a heaven, as a will someday,
And the lord sends ga-bri-el to take me away.
I wanna fine young son, to take my place.
I'll leave my son in my heaven on earth, with the good lord's grace.
I wanna fine young son, yeah, to take my place.
I'll leave my son in my heaven on earth, with the good lord's grace.
Yea-eah.
