“Gonna Build A Mountain” Lyrics

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

I’m gonna build a daydream from a little hope
I’m gonna push the daydream, whoa, up that mountain slope
I’m gonna build a daydream, whoa, I’m gonna see it through
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, whoa, to take my place
I’ll leave my son in my heaven on earth with the good Lord’s grace

I’m gonna build a mountain from a little hill
I’m gonna build a mountain, least I think I will
Whoa, 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
Yeah, 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 the heaven on earth with the good Lord’s grace
I want a fine young son, yeah, to take my place
I’m gonna leave my son in the heaven on earth with the good Lord’s grace, yeah-ah

Davy: Thank you. Woo! Thank you very much. Here he is, here you go, Mike.
Mike: Before we go any farther in the show, I’m gonna talk to you for just about a half a second, so be, be quiet just a minute. Oh, wait a minute, cool it. Um, we know that you have probably heard some things that uh, may or may not have upset you, so we want to straighten it out, and we want you to hear it directly from us, so we’re gonna tell you right now. Regardless of what you have heard or what you have not heard or anything concerning this matter, The Monkees will be seen on television this fall on NBC. Alright! And now, here he is, the hardest workin’ man in show business. Man that brought you such hits as “The Last Train to Clarksville”, “I’m a Believer”. Columbia Pictures Corporation and Screen Gems is proud to present none other than Micky “James Brown” Dolenz. One, two, three.
