from 1965 movie with the same name, sung by Julie Andrews, music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II Lyrics with pictures from video 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 hearsMy 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 tripsTo laugh like a brook when it trips and falls over stones on its way / To sing through the night like a larkTo 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've heard before / My heart will be blessed with the sound of musicwill be blessed with the sound of music / And I'll sing once more!

Maria character: A free-spirited young Austrian woman, studying to become a nun. Due to her often singing and seeming somewhat out of place in the abbey, Mother Abbess sends her to the nearby city of Salzburg to be governess to the seven children of Captain von Trapp. Although initially hostile toward her, the children come to love Maria through her introducing the joys of music and singing, and she develops a special relationship with Liesl, the eldest. Throughout the film, the Captain grows closer to both his children and Maria through the reintroduction of music, and Maria falls in love with him. Fearful of how returning the Captain's affections might seem in God's eyes (as she is the children's governess), Maria returns to the abbey, but is convinced to return and see what her love might bring. Eventually, the Captain admits his feelings for her, and they marry. Julie Andrews was nominated for Best Actress at the Academy Awards for her performance.
