My Favorite Things

a new version by Douglas A. Bauman


Trifles and turtles and chestnuts in roses;
Bright colored pictures of things in odd poses;
Symphonic music with trumpets and strings;
These are a few of my favorite things;

Bagels for breakfast with coffee and creamer;
Colors of autumn when leaves won't be greener;
Fine lyric verses a gay songbird sings;
These are a few of my favorite things;

Steep mountain passes and hillsides with flowers;
Bike rides to places in long country hours;
Coy flirting tidings a new email brings;
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.
