Julie Andrews Turning 79 – This is hysterical!

My Note:  Growing older requires a good sense of humor. This one is a great one to enjoy. Thanks to my sister-in-law Carol for sending this.
UPDATE: I received an email with this link from SNOES that this message is false. Here is the Comment:
If this link will actually show, here’s the truth about the parody and more about why, unfortunately, Julie Andrews couldn’t sing the song.     http://www.snopes.com/humor/iftrue/andrews.asp.








To commemorate her 79th birthday, actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special
appearance at Manhattan ‘s Radio City Music Hall for a benefit. One of the musical
numbers she performed was ‘My Favorite Things’ from the legendary movie
‘Sound Of Music’ .


Here are the lyrics she used:
(Sing It!) – If you sing it, its especially hysterical!!!
Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,

Bundles of magazines tied up in string,

These are a few of my favorite things.
Cadillacs and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses,
Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,

Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,

These are a few of my favorite things.
When the pipes leak, When the bones creak,
When the knees go bad,

I simply remember my favorite things,

And then I don’t feel so bad.
Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,

Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring,

These are a few of my favorite things.
Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin’,
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin’,

And we won’t mention our short shrunken frames,

When we remember our favorite things.
When the joints ache, When the hips break,
When the eyes grow dim,
Then I remember the great life I’ve had,
And then I don’t feel so bad.

Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd
that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores. Please

share Ms. Andrews’ clever wit and humor with others who

would appreciate it.
