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.
