Bright Autumn days that don't get above sixty,

Easy math problems I thought would be tricky,

Bursting out laughing with no reasoning,

These are a few of my favorite things.

Old wooden buttons,

Pretty wall paper,

Newly lit candles,

Good sugar wafers,

Shampoo that smells like a morning in spring,

These are a few of my favorite things.

When the wind bites, when the night howls, when I'm feeling sad,

Simply remember my favorite things,

And then I don't feel so bad.

Moonlight that makes you feel blessed and cared for,

Talking to children,

Old, squeaky screen doors,

Writing so fast you can hear the words sing,

These are a few of my favorite things.

Little glass baubles,

Big lofts in old barns,

Thinking of memories that make your heart warm,

Pillow forts, plushies, marshmallows and rings,

These are a few of my favorite things.

When the wind bites, when the night scares, when I'm feeling sad,

Simply remember my favorite things,

And then I don't feel so bad.
