Julie Andrews – My Favorite Things lyrics

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,
Brown paper packages tied up with string;
These are a few of my favourite things!

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels,
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzels with noodles,
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings,
These are a few of my favourite things!

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes,
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eye lashes,
Silver white winters that melt into spring,
These are a few of my favourite things!
When the dog bites, when the bee stings,
When I'm feeling sad. I simply remember
My favourite things!
And then I don't feel - so bad!
"repeat the whole thing"
