Growing Old is not a laughing matter, but it is nothing wrong to have a bit of fun and humour. I found this song parody and it is for those who are not so very young anymore but feel young at heart. Let us sing and have a bit of fun….. 



Wondrous Things

Julie Andrew’s song in the film The Sound Of Music



Medicines, doctors 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….


Hearing aids, magnifying glasses and

Polident and Fixodent, false teeth in glasses,

Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,

These are a few of my favourite things….


When the bladder 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 softer food for easy chewing,

No spicy hot food, sugary and salty things,

Bathrobes and heat pads and hot meals they bring,

These are a few of my favourite things…


Back pains, confused brains and hard remembering,

Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinning,

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……

Note: My husband just had a set of hearing aids for the very first time. So I dedicated his song for him 🙂
