FUNNY JOKES October 20, 2007 1:42 AM

 To commemorate her 69th birthday on October 1, 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:
> Maalox 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, and 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 pains, 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,
>  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.)
