A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

Adapted from "The Sound of Music"

Sung by two Alumni Nuns

 

Maalox and nosedrops and needles for knittin',

Walkers and handrails and new dental fittin',

Bundles of magazines tied up with string,

These are a few of my favorite things.

 

Cadillacs, cataracts, hearing aids, glasses,

Polident, Fixodent, 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,

Then I remember my favorite things

and I don't feel so bad.

 

Hot tea and crumpets, and corn pads for bunions,

No spicy hot food and no food with onions,

Bathrobes and heat 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 I don't feel so bad.

 

Then I remember the great life I've had,

And I don't feel so bad.
