Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens Brown paper packages tied up with strings These are a few of my favorite things Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings These are a few of my favorite things Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes Silver white winters that melt into springs These are a few of my favorite things When the dog bites, when the bee stings When I'm feeling sad I simply remember my favorite things And then I don't feel so bad ************************ Humourous version as performed by Julie Andrews at the Radio City Music Hall, New York, in October 2004: Maalox and nose drops and needles for knitting Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings Bundles of magazines tied up in string These are a few of my favorite things Cadillacs and cataracts and hearing aids and glasses Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings These are a few of my favorite things When the pipes leak, When the bones creak When the knees go bad I simply remember my favorite things And then I don't feel so bad Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring These are a few of my favorite things Back pains, confused brains, and no fear of sinnin' Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin' And we won't mention our short shrunken frames When we remember our favorite things When the joints ache, When the hips break When the eyes grow dim Then I remember the great life I've had And then I don't feel so bad (Contributed by Shelley Botka - January 2006) ************************ FRENCH VERSION: MES JOIES QUOTIDIENNES (My Favorite Things) Pétales de roses et moustaches de chatons Bonnes mitaines et bon feu qui brille Beau cahier quadrillé cheveux mouillés C'est là un peu de mes joies quotidiennes Gros mille feuilles tarte aux pommes fraîches Grand bol de crème dont on se pourlèche Belle oie sauvage qui s'envole dans la plaine C'est là un peu de mes joies quotidiennes Gaie robe claire coiffures en nattes Doux flocons blancs sur mon nez écarlate Les fleurs d'avril en bouquets qui reviennent C'est là un peu de mes joies quotidiennes Quand le chien mord quand l'abeille pique Quand ça marche mal C'est simple je pense à mes joies quotidiennes Et tout alors va très bien ************************
