    Climb every mountain,
    Search high and low,
    Follow every byway,
    Every path you know.

    Climb every mountain,
    Ford every stream,
    Follow every rainbow,
    'Till you find your dream.

    A dream that will need
    All the love you can give,
    Every day of your life
    For as long as you live.

    Climb every mountain,
    Ford every stream,
    Follow every rainbow,
    Till you find your dream

    A dream that will need
    All the love you can give,
    Every day of your life,
    For as long as you live.

    Climb every mountain,
    Ford every stream,
    Follow every rainbow,
    Till you find your dream.

    (Rolf)
    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

    (Leisl)
    To write on

    (Rolf)
    You are 16 going on 17
    Baby its time to think
    Better beware
    Be canny and careful
    Baby you're on the brink

    You are 16 going on 17
    Fellows will fall in line
    Eager young lads
    And grueways and cads
    Will offer you fruit 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 need someone
    Older and wiser
    Telling you what to do
    I am 17 going on 18
    I'll take care of you

    (Leisl)
    I am 16 going on 17
    I know that i'm naive
    Fellows I meet may tell me I'm sweet
    And willingly I believe

    I am 16 going on 17 innocent as a rose
    Bachelor dandies
    Drinkers of brandies
    What do I know of those

    Totally unprepared am I
    To face a world of men
    Timid and shy and scared am I
    Of things beyond my ken

    I need someone
    Older and wiser
    Telling me what to do
    You are 17 going on 18
    I'll depend on you

    Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
    Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
    Brown paper packages tied up with strings
    These are a few of my favorite things

    Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
    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

    (Repeat all verses)

    MARIA:
    My day in the hills
    Has come to an end, I know.
    A star has come out
    To tell me it's time to go.
    But deep in the dark green shadows,
    There are voices that urge me to stay.
    So I pause and I wait and I listen,
    For one more sound,
    For one more lovely thing
    That the hills might say!
    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.

    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

    How do you solve a problem like Maria?
    How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
    How do you find a word that means Maria?
    A flibbertijibbet! A will-o'-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?

    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 outpester any pest
    Drive a hornet from its 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 pin it down?
    How do you find a word that means Maria?
    A flibbertijibbet! A will-o'-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?
