These Are a Few of My Favorite Things



Lee in the window and hands all a helping

 Rubbish composting and little eyes sleeping
Views of the hills that all seem to sing
These are a few of my favorite things.

Holes that are gone and debris stacked in piles

Complete kitchen walls and Philip all smiles

New and old lemons and peppers to bring
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the tools drill, when the dust clings
When I’m being a crab
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so mad.

Clean copper pipes and blooms that can’t hide
Green Boston ivy climbing there on the side
 New baby to welcome before next spring
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the back aches, when the clothes clings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad.
