I know a place
Pretty as pie
Out where the riverbend hits up with the end of the sky
It's left of Nebraska and over a crest
On a little patch of heaven way out west
Know what I mean?
Darlin', it's quite the sweetest sight thatcha ever done seen
Ain't nothin' much out there, just life at its best
On a little patch of heaven wayout west
Bees by the dozen are buzzin' real peaceful
Doggone it, smells nice
Even the tumblin' tumbleweed
Slows down to match your speed
On my tiny half-an-acre of paradise...
Ev'ry which way
Out on the hills, the daffodils are enjoyin' the day
What could be better than settin' to rest
On a little Patch of Heaven way out West?
Hummin' birds flutter in utter contentment
Ev'ry darn daisy feels lazy, you bet
Even the skeeters an' the fleas say, "May I", "Thanks" and "Please"
Why, it's just as close to perfect as you can get!
Darlin', I swear
Once you've been there
There ain't a view beneath the blue that could ever compare
The only thing missin' is you as my guest
On a little Patch of Heaven way out West
Why don't you come visit?
There's room in the nest
On that little Patch of Heaven way out West!
In the movie version, some lyrics from the soundtrack are absent.
In both versions of the song (not counting the soundtrack version with additional lyrics), one of the chicks begins crowing like a rooster during the end of the song during the beginning and end of the film.
