Someday I'll be a farmer, working the land
I wish I was a farmer, to work with my hands
'Cause it's been too long a ride, too high the fare
Well, I built an-climbed a mountain
But it wasn't there
And I been lookin' all around looked everywhere
Well, I built and climbed a mountain
But it wasn't there
It isn't there, dum ta dum
It isn't here, it isn't there, nor anywhere

I'm gonna pick an apple right from the tree
I'm gonna eat the apple 'cause it grew there for me
And it's been to long a ride, too high the fare
Well, I built an-climbed a mountain
But it wasn't there
And I been lookin' all around, looked everywhere
To build and climb a mountain if it isn't there
It isn't there, dum ta dum
It isn't here, it isn't there, nor anywhere

I wish I was a farmer, working the land
Some day I'll be a farmer to work with my hands
'Cause, it's been too long a ride, too high the fare
You know I built and climbed a mountain
But it wasn't there
And I been lookin' all around, looked everywhere
Well, I built an-climbed a mountain, but it wasn't there
And I been lookin' all around, looked everywhere
To build and climb a mountain if it isn't there
It isn't there, dum ta dum
It isn't here, it isn't there, nor anywhere

I wish I was a farmer, working the land
Some day I'll be a farmer to work with my hands
Hah da da ti da ti dum dum ti dum da da da dum
