Gotta crossbow. String pulled tight with an arrow
Gunna let it fly through the air.
Gotta hand grenade: The sound of the pin and it hits the floor
Gunna watch it blow apart.
Gotta big knife. The shine of the blade as it hits the light
Before it does dirty work.
Gotta catapult. The groan of the wood as it pulls the line taut
Launching heavy rock.
These are a few of my favorite things.
Catch a ride on a big train. Keep the coals on a hot flame
Make steam on down track.
Going to the River— The Mighty Old Man River
Gonna fix me and make me right.
Water my packhorse. Stay alive on rough course
Gotta see what I can find.
Going to the Mountain. The Great Big Mountain.
Talk to The Man in the Sky.
