Something Good

Something Good

“Something Good” – Maria & Captain Von Trapp [The Sound of Music, 1965]

For here you are, standing there, loving me
Whether or not you should
So somewhere in my youth or childhood
I must have done something good

Nothing comes from nothing
Nothing ever could
So somewhere in my youth or childhood
I must have done something good

My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things

“My Favorite Things” – Maria [The Sound of Music, 1965]

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp appleĀ 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 thingsĀ 

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
