   With a sweeping aerial view, the film opens with
    a left-to-right camera pan through the clouds
    and across rocky, snow-covered mountains.
   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 are alive
With the sound of music,
With songs they have sung,
For a thousand years.
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!
    You Are Sixteen, Going On Seventeen
You wait, little girl, on an empty stage
For fate to turn the light on
Your life little girl is an empty page
That men will want to write on (To write on…)
You are sixteen going on seventeen. Baby, it's time to think
Better beware...be canny and careful. Baby, you're on the brink
You are sixteen going on seventeen. Fellows will fall in line
Eager young lads and rogues and cads, offer you food and wine
Totally unprepared are you to face a world of men
Timid and shy and scared are you, of things beyond your ken
You'll need someone older and wiser, telling you what to do,
I am seventeen going on eighteen. I'll take care of you!

And up in the nursery an       So long, farewell, auf
absurd little bird             Wiedersehen, adieu,
Is popping out to say          adieu, adieu, to yieu and
"cuckoo“Cuckoo, cuckoo
Regretfully they tell us       yieu and yieu
Cuckoo, cuckoo                 So long, farewell, au
But firmly they compel us      revoir, auf wiedersehen
Cuckoo, cuckoo                 I'd like to stay and taste
To say goodbye . . .
Cuckoo! . . . to you           my first champagne
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye --
Goodbye!
I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly
The sun has gone to bed and so must I
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye,
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye!

                     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.
