The Lyrics

Hello, mountain, my old friend!
I've come to dance on you again
Because a sunrise slowly creeping
Led me here where I'm now leaping,
And a young lark who was learning how to pray
Flew my way
And sang its sound of music.

Through bubbling brooks I ran alone,
Picked some flowers, threw some stones,
Sang the songs of a Salzburg lass.
I left my wimple in the waving grass.
Then my mind was grabbed by the flash of a future sight
That gave me fright
And paused my sound of music.

And in this vision then I saw
Some seven children and their Pa:
Children marching without playing!
Children study'ng without dancing!
Children stifling songs their voices never share!
Who could dare
Bring them the sound of music?

"Kids," said I, "You ought to know
Ti la sol fa mi re do!
Hear my notes that I might reach you!
Sing my songs that I will teach you!"
But their Dad like Nazi troopers yelled!
(Handsome, swell!)
Objected to my sound of music.

On the hills I sang and prayed.
For an hour or so I stayed.
Then the convent rang its warning:
Time for prayers in the Mass Morning!
And the bells said, "Again, late, Maria?
You're never gonna be a nun!
You love too much fun."
I run back, to the sound of music.

Excellent use of OS and movie together, with titles that were meant for each other. Well done!

Truly creative, at times quite moving...

"Ti la sol fa mi re do" was pure genius! 555+

Have you heard of the "smooshing" technique that was popular here a year or two ago? You do the flip side, by taking the "Sounds of Silence" lyrics and fitting them to the tune of "Sound of Music". Completes the pair, so to speak. (examples on request).

She was in denial about not wanting to be a nun. After all she met a baron who lived in a mansion. Good adaptation.

Tommy: I was considering doing just that. Everyone: thanks for the comments!

Wonderfully told ballad, Melanie. I also thought the reverse "Do Re Mi" was a bit of genius. Well done. _

ABC- Nice job, but i'm with Bob, never heard the OS and never seen the film...I'm sure it'd be a lot funnier if I knew them.

It's been a looong time since I saw The Sound of Music, but I can appreciate the good rhyming and story line here. Well paced.
