My Favorite Things

Words & Music:

Richard Rogers & Oscar Hammerstein III

(from "The Sound Of Music")


G  C  [vamp]



Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,


Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,

Am7         D7       G            C

Brown paper packages tied up with strings,

G           C         F#m7b5   B7

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,

Am7          D7           G         C

Silver-white winters that melt into springs,

G           C         F#m7b5   B7

These are a few of my favorite things



Em                  F#m7b5   B7          Em               C

When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad,

  C                  A7                  G            C    D7 G

I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad.


G  C  [vamp]
