There Is A Mountain

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


That's nice!

The lock upon my garden gate's
A snail, that's what it is
The lock upon my garden gate's
A snail, that's what it is
First there is a mountain
Then there is no mountain, then there is
First there is a mountain
Then there is no mountain, then there is

Oh, yeah! That's nice!

The caterpillar sheds his skin
To find a butterfly within
Caterpillar sheds his skin
To find a butterfly within
First there is a mountain
Then there is no mountain, then there is
First there is a mountain
Then there is no mountain

Oh, Anita, oh, Anita
Oh, Anita, I call your name

Oh, the snow will be a blinding
Sight to see as it lies on yonder hillside
The lock upon my garden gate's
A snail, that's what it is
The lock upon my garden gate's
A snail, that's what it is
Caterpillar sheds his skin
To find a butterfly within
Caterpillar sheds his skin
To find a butterfly within

Everybody, everybody!
Ah, my, my

First there is a mountain
Then there is no mountain, then there is
First there is a mountain
Then there is no mountain, then there is
First there is a mountain
Then there is no mountain, then there is
First there is a mountain
Then there is no mountain, then there is
First there is a mountain...
