Julie Andrews performs new version of "My Favorite Things"

Lie Pie Title: Julie Andrews performs new version of "My Favorite Things"  
Lie Pie Classification: lie pizza

Editor's Note:    Tragically, this one is not true.  Looks like there was a "Sound of Music" 40th anniversary reunion back in 2005, but no performance from Julie Andrews.  She didn't perform for her 69th birthday in 2004 at any benefit for the AARP, either.  Honey, Julie Andrews lost the ability to sing back in 1997 thanks to a failed surgery on her vocal cords. Ain't that the worst thing you ever heard? My heart broke when I read the story at  I tell you, I'm depressed about it.  Me and your Gramps are big "Muppet Show" fans, and the episode starring Julie Andrews is one of our favorites.  Go ahead, you just try to listen to a few seconds of "Edelweiss" without crying your eyes out.  I can't talk about it any more.  Just leave me be, honey.   --Granny, 9/25/2010

40 Yrs Later: The 7 Children in 'The Sound of Music'.


It wouldn't be funny if it weren't so true... Julie Andrews turned 69 and 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 "The Sound Of Music."

Here are the actual 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.

Cadillac's 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,
When 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. Please share Ms. Andrews' clever wit and humor with others who would appreciate it.
