"LOOKING NORTH FROM OSSINING, NEW YORK" Samuel Colman, 1867
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 coverlet 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 looking Beans could get no keener reception in a beanery Bless our mountain greenery home.
Simple cooking means More than French cuisines I’ve a banquet planned which is Sandwiches and beans Coffee’s just as grand with a little sand Eat and you’ll grow fatter boy ‘smatter boy? Huh-huh, atta boy.
In a mountain greenery Where God paints the scenery Just two crazy people together. How-how-how-how we love sequestering Where no pests are pestering No dear momma holds us in tether Mosquitoes here, Won't bite you dear, I'll let them sting me on the finger! Beans could get no keener reception in a beanery Bless our mountain greenery Far from life's machinery Bless our mountain greenery home.
