HUSHABYE MOUNTAIN
Music and Lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
From the Movie Musical: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

A gentle breeze from Hushabye Mountain
Softly blows o’er Lullaby Bay
It fills the sails of boats that are waiting
Waiting to sail your worries away

It isn’t far to Hushabye Mountain
And your boat waits down by the key
The winds of night so softly are sighing
Soon they will fly your troubles to sea

So close your eyes on Hushabye Mountain
Wave goodbye to cares of the day
And watch your boat from Hushabye Mountain
Sail far away from Lullaby Bay
And watch your boat from Hushabye Mountain
Sail far away from Lullaby Bay
