My Favorite Things (pioneer version)

An oldie but a goodie: "My Favorite Things"

(sung to the tune from the "Sound of Music")

Good return visits and good Bible studies;
Fruitful long hours with my service buddies;
Magazine routes that are flourishing well;
People that tell me that I'm doing swell.

Doughnuts and coffee and hot chocolate steaming
Placed all my literature--think that I'm dreaming;
People who welcome the good news I bring;
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the dog bites;
When the door slams;
When I'm told "get lost".
I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I don't feel... so cross.

Big service meetings and publishers plenty;
Finding sheep-like ones although they're not many;
Cars that keep running though tied up with string;
Pioneer school and the joy that it brings.

Blue skies and sunshine although it is our fate;
To live in the cloudiest spot in the whole state;
Getting my time in on days that it rained;
People who help me when I'm feeling drained.

When I'm so broke;
That it's no joke;
When I'm unemployed;
I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I'm no so... annoyed.
