Momus – Mountain Music lyrics
I've got that mountain music in me
But not since I was born
I learned about it yesterday
From a CD-ROM

I've got that mountain music in me
I'll play it till I'm dead
Like a synthesizer sequencer
I've got it in my head

Singing ah ah yuppy digital deck
Johnny Cash, Jupiter, 24 track

Anyone can do it
That's the beauty, see
A Pakistani Indian
Or a kid from Tennessee

Well you can play that music straight
But mix a synthesizer in
And it might become a symbol of the world we're living in

I've got that mountain music in me
Deep in memory
Time-stretched in my sampler
On my Rio mp3

I've got the mountains on a Minidisc
Right next to my heart
And when I press the play button
I hear the music start

It never was so simple
It never was so pure
The folks who made it never were
So ignorant and poor

They traveled round the world
And never stayed where they belonged
And if they had we'd never have
These lovely mountain songs

'Moon Of Alabama' is my favorite country tune
It's got lyrics by a communist and music by a Jew
And when those fellers wrote it they were living in Berlin
I guess that is a symbol of the world we're living in

Ay ay yuppy, digital deck
Johnny Cash, Casio, Dylan and Beck

Grand Ol' Oprah Winfrey, Massive Attack
Johnny Cash, Casio, Bruce Haack

Ay ay yuppy, Dylan and Beck
You and me might as well be on Star Trek
