    Julie Andrews Turns 69, this is hysterical

    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 Favourite Things' from the legendary movie 'Sound Of Music'. Here are the lyrics she used:

    (Sing It!) -
    [FONT=&quot]If you sing it, its especially hysterical!!![/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    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 favourite 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 favourite things.

    When the pipes leak, When the bones creak,
    When the knees go bad,

    I simply remember my favourite 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 favourite 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 favourite 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.)

    Brilliant! Although, if you wrote that yourself, apart from well done, don't you spend time in an odd way!

    Only kidding, thought it was great!

    Although quite funny, unfortunately and sadly, Julie Andrews did not sing it because she couldn't, since an operation to remove a polyp went horribly wrong, she lost her singing voice in 1997. More about this here-
