Mountain Greenery

“Mountain Greenery” is a popular song composed by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Lorenz Hart for the musical The Garrick Gaieties

In a mountain greenery
Where God paints the scenery
Just two crazy people together.
While you love your lover, let
Blues 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!
