Gonna Build a Mountain

CD: I've gotta be me the best of Sammy DAVIS JR. ON REPRISE
Composer: Leslie Bricusse/Anthony Newley
Date: 1962


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