Mountains O’Things [VIDEO]

Mountains O’Things  [VIDEO]

 


By  Tracy Chapman

The life I’ve always wanted 
I guess I’ll never have 
I’ll be working for somebody else 
Until I’m in my grave 
I’ll be dreaming of a live of ease 
And mountains 
Oh mountains o’ things 

To have a big expensive car 
Drag my furs on the ground 
And have a maid that I can tell 
To bring me anything 
Everyone will look at me with envy and with greed 
I’ll revel in their attention 
And mountains 
Oh mountains o’ things 

Sweet lazy life 
Champagne and caviar 
I hope you’ll come and find me 
Cause you know who we are 
Those who deserve the best in life 
And know what money’s worth 
And those whose sole misfortune 
Was having mountains o’ nothing at birth 

Oh they tell me 
There’s still time to save my soul 
They tell me 
Renounce all 
Renounce all those material things you gained by 
Exploiting other human beings 

Consume more than you need 
This is the dream 
Make you pauper 
Or make you queen 
I won’t die lonely 
I’ll have it all prearranged 
A grave that’s deep and wide enough 
For me and all my mountains o’ things 

Oh they tell me 
There’s still time to save my soul 
They tell me 
Renounce all 
Renounce all those material things you gained by 
Exploiting other human beings

Mostly I feel lonely 
Good good people are 
Good people are only 
My stepping stones 
It’s gonna take all my mountains o’ things 
To surround me 
Keep all my enemies away 
Keep my sadness and loneliness at bay 

The life I’ve always wanted 
I guess I’ll never have 
I’ll be working for somebody else 
Until I’m in my grave 
I’ll be dreaming of a live of ease 
And mountains 
Oh mountains o’ things 

I’ll be dreaming, dreaming… 
Dreaming…
