    To commemorate her birthday , actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at
    Manhattan 's Radio City Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP.
    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.

    Julie Andrews was probably THE greatest voice in this generation. It is a huge disappointment that she can't really "sing" anymore. But I'm glad that she has re-focused her creative energies into writing children's books.

    LOVE it BW! Sound of Music is one of my favourite films and Julie sang like an angel - I still get goosebups when I see that early scene when she's arriving at the Von Trapp house - I Have Confidence - love it!

    Very funny, whoever wrote it. I have mailed it round the office and it has given us all a giggle!

    But I found this on Snopes.com when I was searching to see if any clips of her performing it might be on Youtube. http://www.snopes.com/humor/iftrue/andrews.asp

    Just in case anyone else was going to look.
