Julie Andrews favorite things at 79

December 16, 2016

From someone who ought to know, Ken Wilhelm

 

 

Julie Andrews Turning  79 - this is hysterical!   

To commemorate her birthday, actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at Manhattan's Radio  City Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP. One of the musical numbers she performed was 'My Favorite Things'  from the legendary movie 'Sound Of Music'.   Here are the lyrics she used: 

  
Botox 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 favourite things. 

Cadillacs and cataracts, 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 favourite things. 

When the pipes leak, When the bones creak, 
When the knees go bad, 
I simply remember my favourite 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 favourite things. 

Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin', 
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',   
And we won't mention our short shrunken frames, 
  When we remember our favourite 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.

Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd 
that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores.
