Big Rock Candy Mountain
On a summer's day in the month of May
A honey little bum came hiking
He was traveling down lanes through the sugar cane
Just a-looking for his liking
He was looking for a land that's far away
Beside the crystal fountains
I'll see you all this coming fall
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
There's a land that's fair and bright
Where donuts grow on bushes
And you sleep out every night
Where the bulldogs all have rubber teeth
And the hens lay soft-boiled eggs
There's a lake of stew and of soda pop too
You can paddle all around 'em in a big canoe
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

Oh the buzzin' of the bees
In the chocolate trees
The soda water fountain
Where the lemonade springs
And the wing-doodle sings
On the big rock candy mountain

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
You never change your socks
And the little streams of orange squash
Come a-trickling down the rocks
You never have to go to school
And all the cops are blind
Bound to go where there ain't no snow
Where the rain don't fall and the wind don't blow
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

Oh the buzzin' of the bees
In the chocolate trees
The soda water fountain
Where the lemonade springs
And the wing-doodle sings
On the big rock candy mountain
