In The Sound of Music Maria and the children sing a lovely song about a lonely goatherd, but do you know the story? I’ve seen the movie numerous times but never paid attention to the words. In case you’re in the same boat, gather round and I’ll explain it to you.
Once upon a time there was a lonely goatherd on a high hill. He yodeled loudly and was heard by a remote village, a prince, laden men, men eating dinner (table d’hote), men drinking beer and last but not least, a girl with a pale pink coat.
The girl in the pale pink coat responded with a yodel of her own and the girl’s mother soon heard a gleaming gloat. A yodeling duet (you can guess who the duet consists of) ensued and the duet would soon become a trio. (I’m guessing that means they were going to have a baby). The end.
It’s an admittedly short story without much of a plot, but it’s entertaining nonetheless. Odl-lay-e-ooh.
