From the Album: The Sound of Music. Genre: Broadway, Soundtrack. 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. The song was sung by Mary Martin in the 1959 original Broadway production. The version of the song which is perhaps the best known was sung by Julie Andrews in the 1965 film version, with a reprise by the Von Trapp family later in the film.
