The Sound of Music, fave since kid!

"The Sound of Music"

the hills are alive with the sound of music
with songs they have sang for a thousands years
the hills fill my heart with the sound of music
my heart wants to sing every song it hears

my heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds that rise
from the lake to the trees
my hearts wants to sigh like a chime that flies
from a church on a breeze

to laugh like a brook when it trips and falls
over stone on its way
to sing through the night
like a lark who is learning to pray

i go to the hills when my heart is lonely
i know i will hear
what i've heard before
my heart will be blessed with the sound of music
and i'll sing once more



she climbs a tree and scrapes her knee
her dress has got a tear
she waltzes on her way to Mass
and whistles on the stair
and underneath her wimple
she has curlers in her hair
i've ever heard her singing in the abbey

she's always late for chapel but her penitence is real
she always late for everything except for every meal
i hate to have to say it but i very firmly feel
maria's not an asset for the abbey

i'd like to say a word in her behalf
maria makes me laugh

how do you solve a problem like maria
how do you catch a cloud and pin it down
how do you find a word that means maria
a flibbertigibet, a will-o, the wisp, a clown

many a thing to know you'd like to tell her
many a thing she ought to understand
but how do you make her stay and listen to all you say?
how do you keep a wave upon the sand?

how do you solve a problem like maria?
how do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?

when i'm with her i confused
out of focus and be mused
and i never know exactly where i am
unpredictable as weather
she's a flightly as a feathee
she's a darling
she's a demon
she's a lamb

she'll out pester any pest
drive a hornet from its nest
she can throw a whirling dervish out of whirl

she's a gentle, she is wild
she's a riddle, she's a child
she's a headache, she's an angel
she's a girl


"My Favorite Things"

raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
brown paper  packages tied up with strings
these are a few of my favorite things

cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
wild geese that fly with the moon their wings
these are a few of my favorite things

girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
silver white winters that melt into springs
these are a few of my favorite things

when the dog bites
when the bee stings
when i'm feeling sad
i simply remember my favorite things
and then i dont feel so bad



lets start at the very beginning
a very good place to start
when you read you begin with ABC
when you sing you begin with Do-Re-Mi (Do-Re-Mi)
the first three notes just happen to be Do-Re-Mi

Doe (DO) : a deer, a female deer
Ray (RE) : A drop of golden sun
Me (MI) : a name, i call my self
Far (FA) : a long-long way to run
Sew (SO) : a needle pulling thread
La (LA) : a note to follow So
Tea (TI) : a drink with jam and bread
that will bring us back to Doe, oh oh ooh...

when you know the notes to sing
you can sing almost anything

So do la fa mi do re
so do la fa ti la so mi fa mi re ti do
so do!



edelweiss, edelweiss
every morning you greet me
small and white
clean and bright
you look happy to meet me

blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
bloom and grow forever

edelweiss, edelweiss
bless my homeland forever


"Farewell Song"

there's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall
and the bells in the steeple too
and up in the nursery an absurd little bird
is popping out to say "coo-coo"
regretfully they tell us
but firmly they compel us
to say goodbye, to you

so long farewell, auf wiedersehen, good night
i hate to go, and leave this pretty sight
so long farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu
adieu, adieu, to you and you and you

so long farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehen
i'd like to stay and taste my first champagne
(Liesl: Yes? | Captain Von Trap: NO!)
so long farewell, auf wiedersehen goodbye
i leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye..

i'm glad to go i cannot tell a lie
i flit, i float, i fleetly flee, i fly
the sun has gone to bed and so must i..
so long farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye...
