The Lonely Goatherd

This song is by Rodgers and Hammerstein and appears on the movie soundtrack The Sound of Music (1965).


[Maria]
High on a hill was a lonely goatherd
Lay odl-lay odl-lay hee-hoo
Loud was the voice of the lonely goatherd
Lay odl-lay odl-lay odl-loo

Folks in a town that was quite remote heard
Lay odl-lay odl-lay hee hoo
Lusty and clear from the goatherd's throat heard
Lay odl-lay odl-lay odl-loo

[The children]
O ho, lay-dee-odl-lee o, o ho lay-dee-odl-lay
O ho, lay-dee-odl-lee o, o ho lay-dee-odl-lay

[Maria]
A prince on the bridge of a castle moat heard
Lay odl-lay odl-lay hee-hoo
[Kurt]
Men on a road with a load to tote heard
Lay odl-lay odl-lay odl-loo

[The children]
Men in the midst of a table d'hote heard
Lay odl-lay odl-lay hee-hoo
[Maria]
Men drinking beer with the foam afloat heard
Lay odl-lay odl-lay odl-loo


One little girl in a pale pink coat heard
Lay odl-lay odl-lay hee-hoo
[Brigitta]
She yodeled back to the lonely goatherd
Lay odl-lay odl-lay odl-loo

[Maria]
Soon her Mama with a gleaming gloat heard
Lay odl-lay odl-lay hee-hoo
What a duet for a girl and goatherd
[All]
Lay odl-lay odl-lay odl-loo


Ummm (ummm)
Odl-lay ee (odl lay ee)
Odl-lay hee hee (odl lay hee hee)
Odl-lay ee
(Yodeling)

[Brigitta]
One little girl in a pale pink coat heard
[Maria]
Lay-de odl, lay-de odl, lay woo-woo
[Brigitta]
She yodeled back to the lonely goatherd
[Maria]
Lay-de odl, lay-de odl, lay-de odl-loo

[Maria]
Soon her Mama with a gleaming gloat heard
Lay-de odl, lay-de odl, lay hmm hmm
What a duet for a girl and goatherd
Lay odl-lay odl-lay odl-loo

[All]
Happy are they
Lay-de odl, lay-de de [yodeling]
Soon the duet will become a trio
[Maria]
Lay-de odl-lay-de odl-lay odl-loo

[All]
Odl-lay ee, old-lay ee
Odl-lay hee-hee, odl-lay ee
Odl-lay odl-lay, odl-lay odl-lee, odl-lay odl-lee
Odl-lay odl-lay odl-lay

[The children]
HOO!
