DURATION:  2:44

MARIA
My day in the hills has come to an end, I know.
A star has come out to tell me it's time to go.

But deep in the dark green shadows are voices that urge me to stay.
So I pause and I wait and I listen for one more sound, for one more lovely thing that the hills might say.

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 it hears.

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 the 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.

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.

A, B, C,

MARIA
When you sing you begin with do-re-mi.

CHILDREN
Do-re-mi?

MARIA
Do-re-mi,

The first three notes just happen to be
Do-re-mi.

CHILDREN
Do-re-mi!

Maria
Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti

Come, I'll make it easier for you. Listen.

Doe-- a deer, a female deer,
Ray-- a drop of golden sun,
Me-- a name I call myself,
Far-- a long, long way to run,

Sew-- a needle pulling thread,
La-- a note to follow sew,
Tea-- a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to Do-oh-oh-oh!

GRETL

11) Sixteen Going on Seventeen [ MIDI ]

DURATION:  4:54
FILE SIZE:  25.1 KB

ROLF
The only one I worry about is his daughter.

LIESL
Me? Why?

ROLF
How old are you, Liesl?

LIESL
Sixteen. What's wrong with that?

ROLF
You wait, little girl, on an empty stage,
For fate to turn the light on.
Your life, little girl, is an empty page
That men will want to write on.

LIESL
To write on.

ROLF
You are sixteen going on seventeen,
Baby, it's time to think.
Better beware,
Be canny and careful,
Baby, you're on the brink.

You are sixteen going on seventeen,
Fellows will fall in line.
Eager young lads
And roués and cads
Will offer you food and wine.

Totally unprepared are you
To face a world of men.
Timid and shy and scared are you
of things beyond your ken.

You need someone older and wiser
Telling you what to do.
I am seventeen going on eighteen,
I'll take care of you.

LIESL
I am sixteen going on seventeen,
I know that I'm naive,
Fellows I meet
may tell me I'm sweet
And willingly I believe.

I am sixteen going on seventeen,
innocent as a rose.
Bachelor dandies,
Drinkers of brandies,
What do I know of those?

Totally unprepared am I
To face a world of men.
Timid and shy and scared am I
Of things beyond my ken.

I need someone older and wiser
Telling me what to do.
You are seventeen going on eighteen,
I'll depend on you.

DURATION:  2:49
FILE SIZE:  12.2 KB

CHILDREN
There's a sad sort of clanging
From the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too,
And up in the nurs'ry an absurd little bird
Is popping out to say "coo-coo."

BRIGITTA, GRETL & MARTA
"Coo-coo" "coo-coo"

OTHER CHILDREN
Regretfully they tell us,

BRIGITTA, GRETL & MARTA
"coo-coo"

OTHER CHILDREN
But firmly they compel us

BRIGITTA, GRETL & MARTA
"coo-coo"

OTHER CHILDREN
To say goodbye

BRIGITTA, GRETL & MARTA
"coo-coo"

ALL CHILDREN
to you.

So long, fare well,
Auf wiedersehn, good night,

MARTA
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight.

CHILDREN
So long, farewell,
Auf wiedersehn, adieu,

KURT
Adieu, adieu to yieu and yieu and yieu.

CHILDREN
So long, farewell,
Au' revoir, auf wiedersehn,

LIESL
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne.

No?

CAPTAIN
No!

CHILDREN
So long, fare well,
Auf wiedersehn, goodbye,

FRIEDRICH
I leave and head a sigh and say goodbye,
Goodbye.

BRIGITTA
I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie.

LOUISA
I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly.

GRETL
The sun has gone to bed and so must I.

ALL CHILDREN
So long, fare well,
Auf wiedersehn, goodbye,

Goodbye,
Goodbye,
Goodbye,

GUESTS
Goodbye!

MOTHER ABBESS
Climb ev'ry mountain,
Search high and low,
Follow ev'ry by-way,
Ev'ry path you know.

Climb ev'ry mountain,
Ford ev'ry stream.
Follow ev'ry rainbow
Till you find your dream.

A dream that will need all the love you can give
Ev'ry day of your life for as long as you live.

Climb ev'ry mountain,
Ford ev'ry stream.
Follow ev'ry rainbow
Till you find your dream.

A dream that will need all the love you can give
Ev'ry day of your life for as long as you live.

Climb ev'ry mountain,
Ford ev'ry stream.
Follow ev'ry rainbow
Till you find your dream.
