Marie: There was a girl
Donny: There was a boy

Donny:
There was a girl, there was a boy
If they had met they might have found a world of joy
But he lived on the morningside of the mountain
and she lived on the twilightside of the hill

Marie:
They never met, they never kissed
They will never know what happiness they've missed
'Cause he lived on the morningside of the mountain
and she lived on the twilightside of the hill

Both:
For love's a rose that never grows
without the kiss of the morning dew
And every Jack must have a Jill
to know the thrill of a dream that comes true

Donny:
And you and I are just like they
For all we know our love is just a kiss away

Marie:
But you are on the morningside of the mountain

Donny:
And you are on the twilightside of the hill

Both:
And you and I are just like they
For all we know our love is just a kiss away

Marie:
But you are on the morningside of the mountain

Donny:
And you are on the twilightside of the hill

Marie:
There was a girl...

Donny:
There was a boy...
