Julie Andrews
turned 69 - 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."


Here are the
lyrics she used:


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.


Cadillac's and
cataracts, and hearing aids and glasses,


Polident and
Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,


Pacemakers, golf
carts and porches with swings,


T hese 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
pains, 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.


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


Please share Ms. Andrews' clever wit and
humor with others who would appreciate it.
