Mockin' Bird Hill Lyrics

Mockin' Bird Hill (知更鸟山) - Les Paul/Red Skelton/Anita Ellis

Written by:HORTON, VAUGHN

When the sun in the morning peeps over the hill

And kisses the roses 'round my window sill

Then my heart fills with gladness

When I hear the trill

Of those birds in the tree tops

On mocking bird hill

Tra la la tweedlee dee dee

It gives me a thrill

To wake up in the morning

To the mocking bird's trill

Tra la la tweedlee dee dee

There's peace and goodwill

You're welcome as the flowers

On the mocking bird hill

 

When it's late in the evening I climb up the hill

And survey all my kingdom while everything's still

Only me and the sky and an old whippoorwill

Singing songs in the twilight on mockingbird hill

Tra la la tweedlee dee dee

It gives me a thrill

To wake up in the morning

To the mocking bird's trill

Tra la la tweedlee dee dee

There's peace and goodwill

You're welcome as the flowers

 

On the mocking bird hill
