Hey U!
Get out on this dance floor!

Once upon a time n a land called Fantasy
17 mountains stood so high
The sea surrounded them and 2gether they would b
The only thing that ever made U cry
U said the devil told U that another mountain would appear
Every time somebody broke ur heart
He said the sea would 1 day overflow with all ur tears
And love will always leave U lonely

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

Once upon a time n a haystack of despair
Happiness sometimes hard 2 find there
Africa divided, hijack n the air
It's enough 2 make U wanna lose ur mind

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

Guitars and drums on the 1, huh
Whoo
Ooh
Oh
Bobby on the drum (Yeah!)

It's only mountains (oh yeah) and the sea
And the girls say...
There's nothing greater, oh, U and me
Oh

Starvation
Ow!
Mountains, uh
Ow! Ow!
