THE FOLKS WHO LIVE ON THE HILL From the film "High, Wide And Handsome" (1937) (Oscar Hammerstein II / Jerome Kern) Peggy Lee - 1957 Also recorded by: Mel Torme; Bing Crosby; Val Doonican; Stan Getz; Johnny Hartman; Maxine Sullivan; Carol Sloane; Stephane Grappelli; George Shearing; Oscar Peterson; Sylvia McNair; Kiri Te Kanawa; Diana Krall; Helen Merrill; Nina Simone; Jo Stafford; Carmen McRae; Bill Henderson; Andrea Marcovicci; Bobby Hutcherson; Sammy Davis Jr. Many men with lofty aims, Strive for lofty goals, Others play at smaller games, Being simpler souls. I am of the latter brand; All I want to do, Is to find a spot of land, And live there with you. Someday 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". Someday we may be adding a thing or two, A wing or two. We will make changes as any fam'ly will, But we will always be called, "The folks who live on the hill". Our veranda will command a view of meadows green, The sort of veiw that seems to want to be seen. And when the 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, The folks who like to be called, What they have always been called, "The folks who live on the hill".
