The Hollies

The Hollies are an English pop group formed in Manchester in the early 1960s, although the majority of the band members came from towns in East Lancashire. Known for their distinctive vocal harmony style, they became one of the leading British groups of the 1960s and early 1970s. They enjoyed considerable popularity in many countries, although they did not achieve major US chart success until 1966. They had 30 charting singles on the UK Singles Chart, and 21 on the Billboard Hot 100, with songs including, "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", "Carrie Anne", "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress" and "The Air That I Breathe". more »

We met on the shore of a lemonade lake. 
Weeping willows looked down where we lay. 
Orange blossoms I smell in your hair. 
Butterfly, flutter by, butterfly by. 

Waterfalls send your ripples to us 
here on the shore of the lemonade lake. 
Pond lilies play hide and seek with the fish. 
Rabbit run, run rabbit, rabbit run by. 

Roaring mountain is standing close by, 
covered with snowdrops and glistening with dew. 
I hear the sound of a small hummingbird. 
I took your hand and I waltzed off with you. 

Come to the top of the mountain with me. 
Jump on a cloud and we'll float to and fro. 
Seeing the countryside covered with grass 
and the top of the mountain with candy-floss and snow. 

Butterfly lazily drinking the sun, 
lavishly sprinkled and painted with gold. 
Here in the land of the mist and the lake, 
me and my true love will never grow old
