The camera dips into a green, wooded valley with steep cliffs that descend into a snow-fed lake. Reflections of the hills are viewed in the mirror- like images on the water's surface. As the camera moves over the European landscape and village, it discovers an open, green area nestled between the peaks. It moves closer and zooms into the green field, where it suddenly finds a happy and joyous Maria (Julie Andrews), a novice Salzburg Austrian nun, walking across the wide expanse of land. With open-armed appreciation of the beauty of the surrounding majestic peaks and vistas of the Austrian Alps, she twirls and sings the title song...

The hills fill my heart, With the sound of music. My heart wants to sing every song it hears. My heart wants to beat like the wings Of the birds that rise from the lake To the trees. My heart wants to sigh Like a chime that flies From a church on a breeze, To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls Over stones on its way, To sing through the night, Like a lark who is learning to pray. I go to the hills When my heart is lonely. I know I will hear What I heard before. My heart will be blessed With the sound of music And I'll sing once more… Maria In Maria's nunnery, the nuns walk to chapel chanting, praying, but Maria is nowhere to be found the Mistress of Novices, is uncertain of the future of the independent-minded, spirited nun-in training From the viewpoint of Sister Sophia"...she always seems to be in trouble, doesn't she?" The nuns gossip about the young novitiate's unusual behavior with the song "Maria": She climbs a tree And scrapes her knee Her dress has got a tear. She waltzes on her way to mass And whistles on the stair. And underneath her wimple She has curlers in her hair! I even heard her singing in the abbey. She's always late for chapel, But her penitence is real. She's always late for everything, Except for every meal. I hate to have to say it But I very firmly feel Maria's not an asset to the abbey! I'd like to say a word in her behalf. Maria makes me laugh! When I'm with her I'm confused, Out of focus and bemused, And I never know exactly where I am. Unpredictable as weather, She's as flighty as a feather, She's a darling, She's a demon, She's a lamb. She'd out-pester any pest, Drive a hornet from his nest, She could throw a whirling dervish Out of whirl. She is gentle, She is wild, She's a riddle. She's a child. She's a headache! She's an angel! She's a girl. How do you solve a problem like Maria? How do you catch a cloud and bring it down? How do you find a word that means Maria? A flibbertigibbet! A willo' the wisp! A clown! Many a thing you know you'd like to tell her, Many a thing she ought to understand. But how do you make her stay And listen to all you say, How do you keep a wave upon the sand? Oh, how do you solve a problem like Maria? How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand? My Favorite Things Raindrops on roses, And whiskers on kittens, Bright copper kettles And warm woolen mittens. Brown paper packages Tied up with string, These are a few of my favorite things. Cream colored ponies, and crisp apple strudel. Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles, Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings, These are a few of my favorite things. Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes, Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes, Silver white winters that melt into springs These are a few of my favorite things. When the dog bites, When the bee stings, When I'm feeling sad. I simply remember my favorite things, And then I don't feel so bad!

Something Good Perhaps I had a wicked childhood, So somewhere in my youth or childhood Perhaps I had a miserable youth. I must have done something good But somewhere in my wicked, So here you are standing there loving me miserable past Whether or not you should There must've been a moment of truth. So, somewhere in my youth or childhood For here you are, standing there, I must have done something good Loving me. Nothing comes from nothing Whether or not you should. Nothing ever could So, somewhere in my youth or So somewhere in my youth... childhood ...Or childhood I must have done something good. I must have done something... Nothing comes from nothing ...Something good. Nothing ever could I Have Confidence in Me Oh, I must stop these doubts, All these worries What will this day be like? I wonder. If I don't I just know I'll turn back! What will my future be? I wonder. I must dream of the things I am seeking. It could be so exciting... I am seeking the courage I lack. The courage to serve them with reliance, To be out in the world...to be free! Face my mistakes without defiance. My heart should be wildly rejoicing. Show them I'm worthy Oh, what's the matter with me? And while I show them I've always longed for adventure, I'll show me! To do the things I've never dared. So, let them bring on all their problems, I'll do better than my best. Now here I'm facing adventure I have confidence Then why am I so scared? They'll put me to the test! A captain with seven children... But I'll make them see What's so fearsome about that? I have confidence in me.
