The Folks Who Live on the Hill

The Folks Who Live on the Hill
 (words: Oscar Hammerstein II music: Jerome Kern)
 (c)1937 by T.B. Harms Company

 Some day 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."

 Some day 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 verandah 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 that same old view,
 Just we two, Darby and Joan 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."
