"Mountains" as written by and Wendy Melvoin Prince Rogers Nelson (pka: Prince)....
Once upon a time in a land called Fantasy
Seventeen mountains stood so high
The sea surrounded them and together they would be
The only thing that ever made you cry
You said the devil told you that another mountain would appear
Every time somebody broke your heart
He said the sea would one day overflow with all your tears
And love will always leave you lonely

I say it's only mountains and the sea
Love will conquer if you just believe (oh, yeah)
It's only mountains
And the sea
There's nothing greater, you and me

Once upon a time in a haystack of despair
Happiness sometime hard to find (yeah)
Africa divided, hijack in the air
It's enough to make you want to lose your mind

I say it's only mountains and the sea
Love will conquer if you just believe (oh, yeah)
It's only mountains
And the sea
There's nothing greater, oh-oh, you and me

Guitars and drums on the one, huh, whoo
Whoo
(Bobby on the drum, ah)

It's only mountains (oh, yeah)
And the sea (and the girls sing)
There's nothing greater, you and me

Starvation, ow

Mountains
