Band Of The Grenadiers – El Capitan lyrics

Climbing a mountain all day long is somethin' I like to do, so,

You'll find me hangin' from a rope, the side of a cliff or hill,
I won't be home for supper, lunch or breakfast or snack, I will be
Climbing mountains, Climbing mountains, Climbing mountains,
All the time, you bet!
You don't know how it feels to swing like Tarzan from peak to peak
I love this kind of stuff, so I'll be gone for at least a week,
I'm climbing mountains, Climbing mountains, Climbing mountains,
Ev'ry day, you see;

So there's El Capitan! The mountain that speaks to me at night,
It never has left my line of sight.
My dreams are now at hand,
Because I am goin' to climb El Capitan, (you don't believe me?)
Here I go, my friend! The mountain is calling me to climb
I've never had feelings so sublime

Yes, here I go again! I'm really a fan of old El Capitan! You bet, sir!

Gee, I think I'd like to climb the Matterhorn today,
The Matterhorn, some way, the Matterhorn, hooray!
Oh, I think that I could even climb Mount Everest today
Mt. Everest, the very best you've got, uh huh, uh huh!
Golly gee, I'd also like to climb Mt. Washington someday,
(Mt. Jefferson's ok) in Oregon today,
And I'd like to climb the mountains of Bolivia, Ole!
But now I'd like to say, I've got the time, I'm in my prime,
So take me to a mountain I can climb!

Yes, I'll climb up El Capitan, because I'm some kind of macho man!
Please understand, it's my Master Plan to put my brand (on) El Capitan.
I just can't stand living in Spokane where every man drives a minivan
So here's my plan: (don't you think it's grand?
) to get a tan (on) El Capitan!
So come with me to Afghanistan, where we can climb mountains hand in hand;
I understand you're a Yankee fan, but my old man was Charlie Chan, man!
