My Favorite Things

Lyrics: [Oscar Hammerstein]
Music: Richard Rodgers

An instrumental played by Phil Lesh & Friends. The original song comes from the musical "The Sound Of Music", but the Phil Lesh & Friends version derives from John Coltrane's interpretation of the tune, first recorded in 1960.

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 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 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
