Lyrics by:  Lorenz Hart
Music by:  Richard Rodgers
From the Show:  The Garrick Gaieties  (1925)
---------------------------------------------------


On the first of May, it is moving day,
Spring is here, so blow your job,
Throw your job away!

Now's the time to trust,
To your wanderlust,
In the city's dust you wait, must you wait
Just you wait.......!

In a mountain greenery,
Where God paints the scenery
Just two crazy people together.

While you love your lover,
Let blue skies, be your cover-let,
When it rains we'll laugh at the weather.

And if you're good,
I'll search for wood,
So you can cook... while I stand look-in'

Beans could get no keener reception in a beanery
Bless our mountain greenery home!

Mosquitoes here,
Won't bite you dear,
I'll let them sting, me on the finger!

We could find no cleaner retreat from life's machinery
Then our mountain greenery home.



(Additional verse included in some recordings:)

Simple cooking means
more than french cuisines
I've some(?) planwiches, sandwiches and beans
coffee's just as grand, with a little sand
eat and you'll grow fatter boy, s'matter boy(?), thatta boy
