SITTIN' ON A HILLTOP From the film "Thanks A Million" (1935) (Music: Arthur Johnston / Lyrics: Gus Kahn) Dick Powell & The Yacht Club Boys (Film Soundtrack) - 1935 I'm sittin' high on a hilltop Tossin' all my troubles to the Moon Where the breeze seems to say, "Don't you worry" Things are bound to pick up pretty soon Here 'neath the sky on the hilltop Seems to be the world is all in tune I forget all the hustle and hurry Tossin' all my troubles to the Moon I know someone will love me And everything will be just grand Just so the stars up above me Continue doing business at the same old stand It's mighty sweet in the evening When I've had a busy afternoon Sittin' high, high, high on a hilltop Tossin' all my troubles to the Moon (While he sits on a hilltop tossin' troubles to the Moon) (We just sit down in the cellar and rehearse) (It's a cinch we're gonna have a nervous breakdown pretty soon) (While that ????? ????? Rubinoff is worse) I don't see why you're complaining (You don't see why we're complaining) (If you haven't played for Rubinhoff, you'd know) Well, at least he pays you weekly (That's the trouble, he pays us weakly) (Very weakly, very weakly) (Ain't so) Well boys, your salary of course is Enough to pay your rent and laundry bill (Let's give three cheers for our bosses) (We never liked 'em and we always will) For musicians with positions like you fellahs, I'm surprised Would you rather be a saleman or a clerk (Yes! So while you sit on your hilltop) (We'll go right down to the hock shop) (Pawn our instruments and really go to work) Now don't be foolish fellahs Cheer up, the skies will be sunny (Our salary is just three weeks late today) Well, I wouldn't worry Cheer up, you might get your money (You know he may be right, he is) ALL: Well then, come on, let's play Ooh-ooh, it's mighty sweet in the evening When I've had a busy afternoon Sittin' high, high, high on a hilltop Tossin' all my troubles to the Moon Si-posa-poso, tossin' all my troubles to the Moon A-rootie-tootie, tossin' all my troubles to the Moon (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2012)
