Big Rock Candy Mountain
For this week's challenge, think of a land of milk and honey. Think of cigarettes (better make those candy cigarettes!) hanging from trees, and hamburgers growing on bushes. Lemonade fountains and ice cream hills, hard boiled eggs, roast chickens, and banana splits. Candy by the landscape full. Whatever your heart desires -- in the Big Rock Candy Mountain.
"Oh, the buzzin' of the bees and the cigarette trees,
The soda water fountain
Where the lemonade springs and the bluebird sings,
In that Big Rock Candy Mountain.
In the Big Rock Candy Mountain
The cops have wooden legs
The bulldogs all have rubber teeth
And the hens lay soft-boiled eggs
The farmers' trees are full of fruit
The barns are full of hay
I want to go where there ain't no snow
Where the sleet don't fall and the wind don't blow
In that Big Rock Candy Mountain."
