1. Rain-drops on ros-es  and whisk-ers on kit-tens
   Bright cop-per ket-tles and warm wool-en mit-tens
   Gm7          C7         F            Bb
   Brown pa-per pack-a-ges tied up with strings
   F           Bb        Gm6        A7        Dm
   These are a few of my fa-vor-ite things |      |   𝄎   |

2. Cream col-ored pon-ies and crisp ap-ple strud-els
   Door-bells and sleigh-bells and schnitz-el with noo-dles
   Gm7             C7           F             Bb
   Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
   F           Bb        Gm6        A7         D
   These are a few of my fa-vor-ite things. |     |   𝄎   |

3. Girls in white dress-es with blue sat-in sash-es
   Snow-flakes that stay on my nose and eye-lash-es
   Gm7           C7            F          Bb
   Sil-ver white win-ters that melt in-to springs
   F           Bb        Gm6        A7
   These are a few of my fa-vor-ite things

         Dm                    Gm6          A7
Refrain: When the dog bites    When the bee stings
         Dm                Bb
         When I'm feel-ing sad
           Bb                    G7
         I sim-ply re-mem-ber my fa-vor-ite things
             F    Bb  F       Bb  F      C7b9
         And then I   don't | feel   / |      |
         C7   F            Bb           F     C7     F     F
         So   bad |  𝄎  |      |  𝄎  |     |      |     |  ↑  |
