Dancing on the hill‑tops

Language: English

Dancing on the hill-tops,
 Singing in the valleys,
Laughing with the echoes,
 Merry little Alice.

Playing games with lambkins
 In the flowering valleys,
Gathering pretty posies,
 Helpful little Alice.

If her father's cottage
 Turned into a palace,
And he owned the hill-tops
 And the flowering valleys,
She'd be none the happier,
 Happy little Alice.
