My Favourite Things

My Favourite Things(私のお気に入り)は、世代を超えて愛される名曲です。サウンド・オブ・ミュージックで、マリア先生が、子供達に歌い聴かせるシーンは特に有名ですね。

<歌詞>

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things

Cream coloured ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favourite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on may nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favourite things

When the dog bites when the bee stings when I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favourite things and then I don't feel so bad

(繰り返し)

バラの花に落ちた雨の雫/Raindrops on rosesから始まり、気分が落ち込んだ時に元気をくれるものがたくさん登場します。

悲しい気分になったら、自分の好きなものを思い浮かべていくと気分も落ち着いてくるわよ

When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad
