lyrics

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
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

Boys 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

Rain never falling and whisked-away kittens
Evacuations and cats people live in
Kangaroos burning and birds with no wings
These are a few of my favorite things.

Beautiful sunsets ironically colored
Homes with no power and kids with no mothers
Smug politicians with necks we could wring
These are a few of my favorite things.

Boris and megxit and scotty and isis
and bushfires and wildfires and climates in crisis
Silver white icebergs that melt into springs
these are a few of my favorite things

when the dogs die
when the bees die
when i’m feeling blue
i’ll simply remember my favorite things
OH NO I’LL BE DEAD LIKE YOU.
