Big Rock Candy Mountain

Kids love this song and why not... it's an ode to a magical land where they get to follow their happy childhood wishes!  The delightful lyric is by Tom Chapin and John Foster.  From Red's award-winning Favorite Sing Along Songs CD.

Big Rock Candy Mountain

I'll tell you ‘bout a land I know
It's not far from here
And every time you blink your eyes
The strangest thing appears

Chorus
Oh, the buzzing of the bees in the bubblegum trees
And the soda water fountain
The lemonade springs where the bluebird sings
On the Big Rock Candy Mountain

Oh, the Big Rock Candy Mountain is a perfect place for kids
Your allowance grows on bushes
And the cookie jars don't have lids
You can have your choice of any pet in the Big Rock Candy Zoo
There's a root beer lake you can dive into
You can paddle all around it in a big canoe
In the Big Rock Candy Mountain

Chorus

In the Big Rock Candy Mountain you never change your socks
And the little streams of apple juice
Come a bubblin' down the rocks
There's no such thing as homework
It's your birthday all the time
You can stay up late and your folks don't care
You can come to lunch in your underwear
In the Big Rock Candy Mountain

Chorus
