Sounds of Aging

To commemorate her 69th birthday on October 1, 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." However, the lyrics of the song were changed for the entertainment of her audience.Here are the lyrics she sang :

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, 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 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 feeeeeeeel, so bad.

Hot tea and crumpets, and corn pads for bunions,
No spicy hot food or food cooked 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',
Weak 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

."Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd that lasted over! four minutes and repeated encores."
The Wizard has always been a fan of Miss Andrews since "Mary Poppins"......I have it in my dvd collection
BTW , I even liked "Thoroughly Modern Millie" !!!
