Music Monday #6 {Jess}

There’s nothing like hearing your mama sing you a song. As I mentioned in my About Jessica page, my mama used to sing “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music. It wasn’t until years later that I saw the movie and fell in love. I don’t think there was a time in my childhood that my mama didn’t sing this song to me at bedtime. It was very calming and comforting.

“My Favorite Things” made me fall in love with The Sound of Music, and I think the movie made me fall in love with all musicals. So, if you love musicals as much as me and if you feel sentimental in the very least, watch/listen to this short song again.

Lyrics:

“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen 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

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.”

Nothing like a song to make you feel at home. What’s your favorite song from a musical?
