Lyrics to My Favorite Things.

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 strudels,
door bells 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 a white dresses
with a 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.
