Streisand, Barbra - Hurry, It's Lovely Up Here Lyrics




Hey buds below ... up is where to grow
Up with which below can't compare with.
Hurry - it's lovely up here ...
Life down a hole takes an awful toll,
What with not a soul there to share with
Hurry - it's lovely up here!
Wake up, bestir yourself, it's time that you disinter yourself
You've got a spot to fill - a pot to fill
And what a gift package of showers, sun and love
You'll be met above everywhere with,
Fondled and sniffed by millions who drift by,
Life here is rosy - if you're a posy
Hurry it's lovely here!
Climb up geranium, it can't be fun subterran-ium
On the exterior, it's cheerier
RSVP peonies, pollinate the breeze,
Make the queen of bees hot as brandy
Come give at least a preview of Easter
Come up and see the good we're giving
Come up and see the grounds for living
Come poke your head out,
Open up and spread out,
Hurry it's lovely here!

    Hey buds below ... up is where to grow
    Up with which below can't compare with.
    Hurry - it's lovely up here ...
    Life down a hole takes an awful toll,
    What with not a soul there to share with
    Hurry - it's lovely up here!
    Wake up, bestir yourself, it's time that you disinter yourself
    You've got a spot to fill - a pot to fill
    And what a gift package of showers, sun and love
    You'll be met above everywhere with,

  9. Myles Garcia

    Re those wide-open garden scenes, I thought they were supposed to have been shot @ the Fordham campus in the Bronx, but the behind-the-scenes documentary about this film says they were shot in California. Does anyone know with certainty where those were shot? (IMDB does not say so.)

    Gary Cross

    Myles Garcia Rose gardens of Exposition park Los Angeles. Exposition park sits between the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and USC. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtNOzWmheOJosu97ahMsoZnaq2NyN5MtV

    Dave Glo

    Myles Garcia I thought the scene was filmed at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. It’s actually walking distance from Fordham University.

    Myles Garcia

    @Gary Cross Thanks, Gary. U're right.

    Myles Garcia

    @Dave Glo Gary is right. Those are @ the Exposition Park in LA, between USC and the Coliseum.

    One of my all time favorite recordings of hers. Her voice is so dreamy and the arrangement is spectacular. Thanks for the widescreen @loafersguy!

    loafersguy

    Babs at her absolute best - thanks for posting.

  13. peter clark

    so,here we have Vincent Minnelli gay ex husband of Judy Garland .father of Liza, directing Barbara in a Hollywood musical...yep me's a gay ! x x

  14. Michael spilman

    Michael spilmanI didn't like the film as such but I love this opening number a great example of director vincente Minnelli cinematographer harry straddling snr and barbbera Streisand all at the top  of their game. wonderfull

  15. Wayne Brasler

    She never seemed at ease in "Hello Dolly." In this, the next film, she seems totally at home. Vincent Minnelli understood her totally and sense how best to present her talents and, even better, how to help her give a memorable performance in the mode of support and appreciation.

    David King

    I think she was glorious in "Hello Dolly". Perhaps a little to young to play the part. No, not at all. Not when you're dealing with such a powerhouse actress as Barbra! "So Long Dearie" I believe is the most effective number from "Dolly". I love this musical, score penned Burton Lane

  16. FarmYardFlavours

    Excellent! Best opening to a movie ever!!

  17. Deborah Golding

    Born in 1969 heard my mother playing this, film probably, sang to it, now 46, bought it , sang along to it, love it, really bum Barbra. Debee the gardener. x
