DSC00108I was sent this little piece a few weeks ago (I don’t know who wrote it) and since I found myself humming along to the tune today, thought I would post it. It might amuse. You’ll guess the tune pretty quickly.

Make sure you sing out loudly, especially if you’re at work! (By the way, for all us Brits, Maalox is a drug that prevents bloating, wind and such like.)

MY FAVORITE THINGS (OAP VERSION)

Maalox and nosedrops and needles for knittin’,

Walkers and handrails and new dental fittin’s,
Bundles of magazines tied up with string,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Cadillacs, cataracts, hearing aids, glasses
Polident, Fixodent, 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
Then I remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so sad

Hot tea and crumpets, and corn pads for bunions
No spicy hot food nor food cook’d 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’
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 sad

THEN I REMEMBER THE GREAT LIFE I’VE HAD AND THEN I DON’T FEEL SOOO BAD
