Folks Who Live on the Hill Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Someday we'll build a house 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 fam'ly will
And we will be pleased to 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 our kids grow up and leave us
We'll sit and look at the same old view, just we two

Darby and Joan, who used to be Jack and Jill
And we'll be pleased to be called
What we have always been called
The folks who live on the hill

Songwriters
KERN, JEROME / HAMMERSTEIN, OSCAR II
