Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With String

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 streudels
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

i know, i forgot how much of the lyrics i didnt know. oh well. that doesnt mean i cant try to sing my own jumbled version. for some reason, however, this song is something i always think about when it rains. not that i feel sad when it rains, but because i guess you could add rain to a list of some of my favorite things. You could also add coffee, and reading, and blanket forts onto that list, especially because, onceĀ i think about rain, i think about all the other things that come with it.
