In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
There's a land that's fair and bright
Where the handouts grow on bushes
And you sleep out ev'ry night,
Where the boxcars are all empty
And the sun shines ev'ry day,
Oh, I'm 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 peppermint trees
'Round the soda water fountains,
Where the lemonade springs
And the bluebird sings
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

Singing: "Na, na, na, na, na, na, nee
Na, na, na, na, na, nee, come on sing with me".

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
You never change your socks
And little streams of lemonade
Come a-tricklin' down the rocks,
The hobos there are friendly
And their fires all burn bright,
There's a lake of stew
And soda, 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 peppermint trees
'Round the soda water fountains,
Where the lemonade springs
And the bluebird sings
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

Singing: "Na, na, na, na, na, na, nee
Na, na, na, na, na, nee, come on sing with me".
