“Gonna Build A Mountain” Lyrics

I’m gonna build a mountain, from a little hill
I’m gonna build a mountain, whoa-oh, 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

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, whoa, I’m gonna see it through
I’m gonna build a mountain and a daydream, gonna make ’em both come true

I’m gonna build a heaven and a world someday
And the Lord sends Gabriel to take me away
Oh, I want a fine young son, to take my place
I’ll leave my son in the heaven on earth with the good Lord’s grace

I’m gonna build a mountain from a little hill, woo
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

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, I’m gonna see it through
I’m gonna build a mountain and a daydream, gonna make ’em both come true

I’m gonna build a heaven and a world someday
And the Lord sends Gabriel to take me away
I want a fine young son to take my place
I’ll leave my son in my heaven on earth with the good Lord’s grace
I want a fine young son, whoa, to take my place
I’ll leave my son in my heaven on earth with the good Lord’s grace, yeah

Davy: Thank you. Thank you very much. There you go.
Mike: Right now, I wanna set a few things straight in your mind, because you may have heard some rumors, and you—we wanted you to hear it from us. Regardless of what you’ve heard, I don’t care what it is, The Monkees will be on the air this September, right here in Mobile. Thank you. And now! Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems Corporation is pleased to present the hardest working man in show business. The man that brought you such hits as “The Last Train to Clarksville”, “I’m a Believer”. None other than your very own favorite, Micky “James Brown” Dolenz! One, two, three!
