"Old People Favorite Things"

  1. This is a revision of "A Few of My Favorite Things"
    The original was sung by Julie Andrews in "The Sound of Music".
    Ms. Andrews appeared at Radio City Music Hall, almost 10 years ago now, and sang a revison of her song,

    She called it her "Old People Favorite Things"

    (Sing It! - If you sing it, its especially hysterical!!!)

    Maalox 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 favorite things.

    Cadillacs and cataracts ,and 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 favorite things.

    When the pipes leak,
    When the bones creak,
    When the knees go bad,
    I simply remember my favorite 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 favorite 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 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 then I don't feel so bad!!

    That is PRICELESS!!! And great timing, especially since my doctor appointment yesterday when he told me, "The good news is, your A1C is 5.6. The bad news is, you're getting old."
