On a Dsummer A7day In the Dmonth of A7May
A Dburly A7bum came Dhiking Down a shady A7lane
Through the Dsugar A7cane He was Dlooking A7for his Dliking
As he A7roamed along He Dsang a song
Of the A7land of milk and Dhoney Where a bum can A7stay
For Dmany a A7day And he Dwon’t A7need any Dmoney
DOh the buzzin’ of the bees In the cigarette trees
Near the Gsoda water Dfountain At the A7lemonade springs
Where the Dbluebird sings
A7On the big rock candy Dmountain

 

1. On a summer day In the month of May
A burly bum came hiking Down a shady lane
Through the sugar cane He was looking for his liking
As he roamed along He sang a song
Of the land of milk and honey Where a bum can stay
For many a day And he won’t need any money
Oh the buzzin’ of the bees In the cigarette trees
Near the soda water fountain At the lemonade springs
Where the bluebird sings
On the big rock candy mountain

2. There’s a lake of gin We can both jump in
And the handouts grow on bushes
In the new-mown hay We can sleep all day
And the bars all have free lunches
Where the mail train stops And there ain’t no cops
And the folks are tender-hearted
Where you never change your socks
And you never throw rocks
And your hair is never parted
Oh the buzzin’ of the bees In the cigarette trees
Near the soda water fountain At the lemonade springs
Where the bluebird sings On the big rock candy mountain

3. Oh, a farmer and his son, They were on the run
To the hay field they were bounding
Said the bum to the son, Why don’t you come
To that big rock candy mountain?”
So the very next day They hiked away,
The mileposts they were counting
But they never arrived At the lemonade tide
On the big rock candy mountain
Oh the buzzin’ of the bees In the cigarette trees
Near the soda water fountain At the lemonade springs
Where the bluebird sings
On the big rock candy mountain
