A Shack in the Back of the Hills

< instrumental opening > 
 
It's only a shack in the back of the hills,
but it's more than a palace to me!
It may be a shack in the back of the hills,
but it's heaven for Molly and me!
There's a cute little thing
that we vowed to back there,
and he rules like a king from his tiny highchair!
 
It's only a shack in the back of the hills,
but it's more than a palace to me!
 
< instrumental bridge with whistling > 
 
There's a cute little thing
that we vowed to back there,
and he rules like a king from his tiny highchair!
 
It's only a shack in the back of the hills,
but it's more than a palace to me!
