Gonna Build a Mountain Lyrics

Artist: Monkees
Album: Live 1967

1: I'm gonna build a mountain, from a little hill.
I'm gonna build a mountain, least I hope I will.
I'm gonna build a mountain, I'm gonna build it high.
I don't know how I'm gonna do it, only know I'm gonna try.
2: I'm gonna build a daydream, from a little hope.
I'm gonna push the daydream, up that mountain slope.
I'm gonna build a daydream, woah, I'm gonna see it through.
Gonna build a mountain and a daydream,
Gonna make 'em both come true.
3: I'm gonna build a heaven, as a will someday,
And the Lord sends Ga-bri-el to take me away.
Woah, I wanna fine young son, to take my place.
I'll leave my son in my heaven on earth with the good Lord's grace.
4: I'm gonna build a mountain, from a little hill.
I'm gonna build a mountain, least I hope I will.
I'm gonna build a mountain, yeah, gonna see it through.
Gonna build a mountain and a daydream,
Gonna make 'em both come true.
5: I'm gonna build a daydream, from a little hope.
I'm gonna push the daydream, up that mountain slope.
I'm gonna build a daydream, woah, I'm gonna see it through,
Gonna build a mountain and a daydream,
Gonna make 'em both come true.
6: I wanna build a heaven, as a will someday,
And the Lord sends Ga-bri-el to take me away.
I wanna fine young son, to take my place.
I'll leave my son in my heaven on earth, with the good Lord's grace.
I wanna fine young son, yeah, to take my place.
I'll leave my son in my heaven on earth, with the good Lord's grace.
Yea-eah.

I'm pretty sure that the heaven is built on top of the mountain.
another lyric you've got wrong is that the last line is "gonna build a heaven from this world of pain".
