Google & My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things
-Oscar Hammerstein II and Richard Rodgers

It occured to me just today that google would give me these lyrics. Its a song I loved a lot as a kid of 5th std and is associated with sweet memories of my friendship with mew (this is what her friends call her now). Herself, me & S were kind of best pals during those 3 years of school in Delhi and then with my dad getting trfed to Ambala, we lost touch only to be found last year through NamesDatabase.

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.

Girls 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. 

PS: How did I get at this today out of the blue? Actually I am at mom's place & enjoying my vacations. She,  out of sheer love for me & my love for writing, digged out my old diary and that brought back the memories. I tried googling for "rain drops on roses & whiskers" and voila! I got the full song lyrics.. 

Hey Girls! This is dedicated to both of you. me loves u!!
