Big handsome kitties and wee little kittens,
Siblings and nibbling and very good sittin',
Sweaters and bonnets and dressing like kings,
These are a few of our favorite things!

Angels and Santa and cats dressed as dragons,
Dogs with their families, in carts or a wagon,
Hiding and riding and playing with strings,
These are a few of our favorite things!

When the work's hard,
When the dogs lick,
When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things, and then I don't feel so bad!
