Once upon a time N a land called Fantasy
17 mountains stood so high
The sea surrounded them & 2gether they would B
The only thing that ever made U cry
U said the devil told U that another mountain would appear
Everytime somebody broke ur heart
He said the sea would 1 day overflow with all ur tears
& love will always leave U lonely
But say it's only mountains & the sea
Love will conquer if U just believe
Oh yeah

It's only mountains
& the sea
There's nothing greater, oh
U & me

Once upon a time N a haystack of despair
Happiness sometimes hard 2 find, yeah
Africa divided; hijack N the air
It's enuff 2 make U wanna lose ur mind
But say it's only mountains & the sea
Love will conquer if U just believe
Oh yeah

It's only mountains
& the sea
There's nothing greater, oh
U & me

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

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

Starvation
Ow!
Mountains, uh
