My Favorite Things

New, comments

Here is a little ditty I wrote to the Rogers & Hammerstein classic, My Favorites Things, hope you like it I got a kick out of writing it!  I enclose below my favorite instrumental version by the John Coltrane Quartet for your listening pleasure:

Hines over the middle Tomlin has written

With Troy’s talents we are so smitten

Six iced out gold and platinum rings

These are a few of my favorite things

Tailgating Heinz can be too brutal

And blitzing Ben is oh so futile

Crazy Deebo wishes Goodell in slings

These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white throwbacks waving terrible sashes

With awesome racks and luscious eyelashes

Silver white winters that melt into blings

These are a few of my favorite things

chorus

When the bills come

When your life stings

When I'm feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don't feel so bad.

Latino women with light whiskered kittens

Antonio Browns’ script already writtens

Front Office knowledge of eternal springs

These are a few of my favorite things 

 

Crushing Brady and making him sniff butyl

Causing Flacco to constantly tootle

Hot girls grinding on bar swings

These are a few of my favorite things

 

Ike, Woodley,Timmons earning their cashes

And an O-line stronger than fly ashes

Vegas pool parties that end in wild flings

These are a few of my favorite things

repeat chorus

John Coltrane played tenor sax but began playing the soprano sax at the behest of Miles Davis just before recording the My Favorite Things Album. If you like Jazz you can’t go wrong with the My Favorite Things album which was recorded in only 3 days in 1961. It features McCoy Tyner (piano), Steve Davis (bass) and Elvis Jones (drums). This album also featured the Gershwin standard Summertime which inspired Kool & The Gang’s Summer Madness and later DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince. Sadly, John Coltrane died too early at age 40 in 1967, a true American Jazz Icon.
