    It was from the film - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang - not sure who sang it tho :crazy:

    Full lyrics:

    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

    In the film it was sung by the Dad - Charactacus Potts played by **** van Dyke - it all comes back now. Love Chitty Chitty Bang Bang - great film :eek:

    But according to Google - Bobby Gentry has also sung it. It's one of those that's been around :D
