Someday we'll build a home
On a hilltop high, you and I
Shiny and new, a cottage that two can fill
And we'll be pleased to be called
The folks who live on the hill

Someday we may be adding
A thing or two, a wing or two
We will make changes as any family will
But we will always be called
The folks who live on the hill

Our veranda will command
A view of meadows green
The sort of view
That seems to want to be seen

And when the kids grow up
And leave us
We'll sit and look
At the same old view
Just we two

Darby and me who used to be Jack and Jill
The folks who like to be called
What they have always been called
The folks who live on the hill

Songwriters
KERN, JEROME / HAMMERSTEIN, OSCAR II
