Lyrics
Gonna build a mountain
From a little hill
Gonna build me 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 me 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 them both come true

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

When I build that heaven as I will someday
And the lord sends Gabriel to take me away
What a fine young son to take my place
I'll leave a son in my heaven on earth
With the good lord's grace

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

Gonna build a mountain
