THE THINGS I LOVE


These are the things I love

A rusty auto by a blue lagoon
And poison ivy in the month of June
The sound of robins singing out of tune
These are the things I love

The taste of ketchup on my apple pie
The sound of fire engines passing by
A babyís face when itís about to cry
These are the things I love

I love each snowflake that turns to mud
A lazy river when thereís a flood
A broken flower, a dog with fleas
Who could hate things like these?

Is there a traffic jam on Loversí Lane?
A shiny rainbow with a lot of rain
And folks who push you on the subway train
These are the things I love

I love a fly in my lemonade
The sound of raindrops on a parade
A grand piano without the strings
These are a few of my favorite things

A broken bottle that you can never mend
The Christmas cards that I refuse to send
A chance to quarrel with a favorite friend
These are the things I love,
These are the things I love!
