Mockin' Bird Hill
(Vaughn Horton)

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 the birds in the treetops on Mockin' Bird Hill.

cho: Tra la la, tweedle dee dee dee
     It gives me a thrill,
     To wake up in the  morning
     To the mockin' bird's trill.
     Tra la la tweedle dee dee dee
     There's peace and good will;
     You're welcome as the flowers
     On Mockin' Bird Hill

Got a three-cornered plow and an acre to till
And a mule that I bought for a ten-dollar bill
There's a tumble-down shack and a rusty ol' mill
But it's my Home Sweet Home up on Mockin' 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 ol' whippoorwill
Singin' songs in the twilight on Mockin' Bird Hill.
