    From the movie "Sound of Music"
    Things to remember when we grow old...............


    Maalox 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 and 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,
    hen 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 pains, confused brains, and no fear of 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.

    Kya yaar Aruna...

    Khubsoorat geet ko aisa khooni kar diya thune?!!:rotfl

    Hey, I was reading Satchi's nominated post in Snippets on the same song and saw a link to this on that page. Didn't know you had already doctored it here!!

    Ok, this sounds more befitting to my age! But, I don't like to believe it and shall wait for few more years and come back here to read this again!!

    L, Kamla
