Paroles "The Folks Who Live on the Hill (Remastered Version)" - Nina Simone

Many men with lofty aims
Strive for lofty goals
Others play at smaller games
Being simpler souls

I am of the latter brand
All I want to do
Is to find a spot of land
And live there with you

Someday we'll build a home on a hilltop high
You and I
Shiny and new a cottage that two can fill
And we'll be pleased to be called
"The folks who live on the hill"

Someday we may be adding a thing or two
A wing or two
We will make changes as any fam'ly will
But we will always be called
"The folks who live on the hill"

Our veranda will command a view of meadows green
The sort of view that seems to want to be seen
And when the kids grow up and leave us
We'll sit and look at the same old view
Just we two

Darby and Joan who used to be Jack and Jill
The folks who like to be called
What they have always been called
"The folks who live on the hill"
