THE SOUND OF MUSIC
(BAR)-Rodgers & Hammerstein
4/4 1...2...123 (without intro)
(4 beats each)
The hills are alive with the sound of music,
With songs they have sung
for a thousand years.
The hills fill my heart with the sound of music.
My heart wants to sing ev'ry song
My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds that rise from the lake to the trees.
My heart 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 stones on its way,
To sing through the night, like a lark who is learning to pray.
