alt-J - Hares On The Mountain Lyrics




Oh Sally, my dear
It's you I'd be kissing
She smiled and replied
"You don't know what you're missing"

If all the young men
Were hares on the mountain
How many young girls would take guns and go hunting?

If all the young men
Were fish in the water
How many young girls would undress and dive after?

If the young men could sing
Like blackbirds and thrushes
How many young girls would go beating the bushes?

But the young men are given
To frisking and fooling
So I'll leave them alone
And attend to my schooling

alt-J Hares On The Mountain Comments
  1. eastcoastdan

    I see this title on Netflix and immediately scroll past every time.
    Then this song comes up on my Alt-J station and I see that same ridiculous ass guy on the thumbnail pic next to the track.
    This song is so amazing I might just watch the movie.

  2. Vincent Van Gogurt

    only good thing about this movie lmao

  3. Angelo Kioumourtzis

    Shit’s gone full Mezzanine

  4. Tom Buchanan

    I love this song cause it has this dark medieval sound to it yet at the same time is modern just like the movie Bright

  5. Jess Gillis

    I want to watch this movie just for this song. I think I will be disappointed.

  6. Arzooerk

    the song eats my entire soul everytime ; the movie tho.. no.

  7. Whitakerrr

    Have y'all heard The Local Honeys version of "Hares on the mountain"?

  8. Mother Mushroom

    This song just feels good to listen to

  9. subg88

    They left out the best verse...oh sally, my dear, I wish I could bed you; she smiled and replied then you'd say I'd misled you

    B G :]

    subg88 hey :), in what version of this song does he say this?

  10. Luka Mrković

    Am I the only one who feels that “hunt them”, or “hunt’em” would fit better than “hunting”?

  11. Elizabeth Bengtsson

    NOICE

    Bastille and alt-J 's music in the same movie

  12. 7th Level Music

    This is good. All Them Witches released a haunting version of it on their new EP as well.

  13. Solatic

    What kind of genre is this? Can someone show me more songs like this?

    Aidan Spousta

    maybe try Lorn or massive attack depends what you like

    Angelo Kioumourtzis

    Listen to Massive attack’s Mezzanine

  14. P V

    nice.....fuzz form / acid.....good to see a nicely done fuzz form soudtrack after a loong time.

  15. Luke Hanson

    I thought it was in 6/8.

    Luke Hanson

    But it should be!

  16. Adam Szasz

    Don't really care about the movie. But any time I see Alt-J, I click.

  17. Madyson

    gorgeous, gives me chills :)

  18. Jeppe Løger

    This caught me by surprise. Really nice.

  19. Katie Youngblood

    Does anyone else feel like this song is being pumped straight into their soul when they listen to it. It’s just so entrancing to me.

    Natali Fattaleh

    kathy rhino yes

  20. Chance

    horrible fucking movie, but totally something alt-J would fuck with

  21. Matthew Weston

    alt-J went from around 407,000 listeners a month on Spotify, to over 4 million after this song came out... They're getting to big, stop, I need to keep them for myself.

  22. Matthew Weston

    alt-J went from around 400 thousand viewers a month to over 4 million after this song came out, that's crazy.

  23. GoldTides

    Definitely getting Hunger of the pine vibes from this

  24. Ridge Babb

    Dear lord this makes me want another Alt J album

    Diogo Cruz

    Dark lord this makes me want another Alt J album

  25. deon wyman

    Never heard of him but I like this Bruh

    The Perpetual Procrastinator

    Willie Wyman then you should listen to more. I honestly cannot recommend any other band that’s this good.

    Potato Person

    There’s 3 of them in the band

  26. Your Entertainment City

    🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥I've waited for this

  29. Sophie Asha

    Oh Sally, my dear
    It's you I'd be kissing
    She smiled and replied, "You don't know what you're missing."

    If all the young men
    Were hares on the mountain
    How many young girls would take guns and go hunting?

    If all the young men
    Were fish in the water
    How many young girls would undress and dive after?

    If the young men could sing
    Like blackbirds and thrushes
    How many young girls would go beating the bushes?

    But the young men are given
    To frisking and fooling
    So, I'll leave them alone and attend to my schooling

    Kaptain Kommunist

    Ju Del Rey It doesn't because netflix hates Alt-J.

    Nicholas Rocca

    When Will Smith calls his wife to say her to leave the city this song is in the back in the bar. So sad...

  36. julia astarina

    This sounds familiar and foreign at the same time as something from Alt-J.

    Alex Stopforth

    Lyrics are similar to Interlude I (Ripe and ruin)...

    Omar Diaz

    Alex Stopforth Not even close lol

    Alex Stopforth

    +Omar Diaz To clarify, I mean this is a folk song, and Interlude I is LIKE a folk song

  37. FernandaBean

  38. Cheyenne Miller

    OKAY
    SO FIRST WE GET BASTILLE

  40. Makayla Curtis

    It saddens me that a lot of people only listen to the songs when the people are well-known instead of listening to them all.

    JavanLawJH

    I'm a simple man, I see alt-J I press the like button. Also this movie, just by looking at the synopsis seems like something alt-J would do too.

    Filippo Soraperra

    Filippo Soraperra
