Lyrics
Gonna build a mountain
From a little hill
Gonna build a mountain
Least I hope I will
Gonna build a mountain
Gonna build it high
I don't know how I'm gonna do it
I only know I'm gonna try

Gonna build a daydream
From a little hope
Gonna push that daydream
Up the mountain slope
Gonna build a daydream
Gonna see it through
Gonna build a mountain and a daydream
Gonna make 'em both come true

Gonna build a heaven
From a little hell
Gonna build a heaven
And I know darned well
If I build my mountain
With a lot of care
And take my daydream up the mountain
Heaven will be waiting there

(Instrumental)

When I build that heaven as I will someday.
And the lord sees Gabriel to take me away.
With a fine young son to take my place.
I'd leave a son in my heaven on earth.
With the good lord's good praise.
Gonna build a mountain.

With a fine young son to take my place.
I'd leave a son in my heaven on earth.
With the good lord's good praise.
