Raven’s Jig – My Favorite Things

The Sound of Music is basically a mix of hit songs that would all become icons in musical history, and My Favorite Things has been arranged and rearranged to the max. It is actually one of Agathe’s favorite melodies of all times, which brought her to uncontrollable tears from sheer beauty when she was a little girl. We didn’t dare to touch the amazing original lyrics to this colorful song full of imagery, but we did decide to add our own imagery, with one extra original verse listing some of our favorite things, as a tribute to the original.

Lyrics:
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

Jumping jazz music and sweet sugar sprinkles
First rays of sunshine and bedsheets with wrinkles
Tinkling sounds of curtain rods through their rings
These are a few of my favorite things

Plays from the fifties and heartwarming chatters
Stray thoughts that make you feel like nothing matters
Tears of joy giving cheeks golden linings
These are a few of my favorite things

When this weird world
Pinches my heart
‘Til I might go mad
I start to remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad
