Queen of the Mountain (lyrics only)

Author unknown

Run and skip, jump and fall
You think you’re tall
But you’re so small
Mother calls for supper,
No more play
Soon they’ll come tomorrow
Another day

Singin’ hay ladida, oh ladidi
Oly otindo and ali oxen free
Oh I can run faster than Jimmy Brown
I’m the queen of the mountain
And you’ll never get me down.

Gotta get up early
Got a lot to do
Gonna build a castle
And go to the zoo
Visit Mother Goose
And storybook land
Why does mommy hold my hand?

Singin’ hay ladida, oh ladidi
Oly otindo and ali oxen free
Oh I can run faster than Jimmy Brown
I’m the queen of the mountain
And you’ll never get me down.

I’m pretty old now
Five and a half
Gonna be like Daddy
And never laugh
Cuz when you’re old
You’ve got to be strong
You’re not a child for very long

Singin’ hay ladida, oh ladidi
Oly otindo and ali oxen free
Oh I can run faster than Jimmy Brown
I’m the queen of the mountain
And you’ll never get me down.

I’m full grown now,
On my own,
How I wish I could
Go back home
And play all day
With my old friends
Why does childhood have to end?

Singin’ hay ladida, oh ladidi
Oly otindo and ali oxen free
Oh I can run faster than Jimmy Brown
I’m the queen of the mountain
And you’ll never get me down.
