Todd Rundgren – Mountaintop lyrics

Well, the old man called me to his dying bed
There's only one thing in this world I like to see, he said
I tried so many times but I've never done it
Often made the climb but never reached the summit
So I could look down on this pissant little town
I took one step
And another step
But I could not reach that mountaintop
I couldn't reach the mountaintop
So I picked him up and put him on my back
And strapped him in just like a hiking pack
I took off up the hill at a steady pace
I said: don't die on me now, we're gonna win this race
So we can look down on this pissant little town
I'll take one step
And another step
Til I reach that mountaintop
I'm gonna reach the mountaintop
