Verse:
I stop wor - ry - in' when I start hur - ry - in a - way,
From all my dai - ly cares, and lone - some - ness.
Twi - lites hour finds me in a bow - er, where the skies are blue.
And here's a birds's eye view, of hap - pi - ness:
 
Chorus:
High up on a hill - top,  Beau - ti - ful to see,
There's a co - zy cot - tage,  Stand - ing peace - ful - ly.
Skies are nev - er cloud - y,  When the day is done,
Stars are twink - ling "How - dy",  To a set - ting sun.
Just pict - ure lit - tle Jack and Jill,  Run - ning down the hill to meet me.
And there's my lit - tle la- dy fair,  Wait - ing for her share of joy.
Hand in hand to - geth - er,  Hap - py as can be,
High up on a hill - top;  That's heav - en to me.
