Mountains O' Things - 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 life 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
    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


    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


    I'll be dreaming, dreaming, dreaming, dreaming, dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
    Dreaming ...
    Repeat 3x
