She looks really old in that recent birthday photo :(

 

Did anyone else hear about the special rendition of "My Favorite Things" she reportedly performed recently during a birthday celebration?

 

To commemorate her birthday, 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 Sound of Music.? However, the lyrics of the song were deliberately changed for the entertainment of her audience?. Here are the lyrics:

 

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?

 

Cadillacs 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 heat pads and hot meals they bring,

These are a few of my 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 reportedly received a standing ovation from the crowd that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores.

Why is she so angry in that photo of "Duet for One"? She looks so ugly when she's angry :(

 

Well anyway, since we were talking Broadway musicals, I'd like to share some more of the lyrics of Barnum, one of the greatest musicals of all time! :)

 

Everything about my museum was spectacular, including the price: one dollar. Now that may seem a bit steep, but it was worth it. Look at what I gave 'em:

 

Quite a lotta

Roman terra cotta

Livin' lava from the flanks of Etna

Statuary

Ride a dromedary

See the Temple tumble and the Red Sea part.

 

McNamara's band

The fattest lady in the land

A pickled prehistoric hand

A strand of Pocahontas' hair

Crow and Sioux

Who're going to

Be showing you

Some rowing through

A model of the rapids on the Delaware.

 

Armadillas

Clever caterpillas

Reproductions of the Cyclops' ret'na

Crystal blowing

Automatic sewing

Venus on a shell and other works of art.

 

Educated fleas

A tribe of Aborigines

Two ladies joined across the knees

A Mona Lisa made of ice

Hottentots

We've gotten in

Forgotten spots

A cotton gin

A night with Lot in Sodom

Better see that twice!

 

One iguana

Snakes and other fauna

Got no bearded lady but we're get'na

When you duck out

Take another buck out

Run around the block

And see a new show start.

I'm a Julie Andrews fan myself, and i am glad that she did mary poppins instead of my fair lady. Although, she would have been wonderful at it! Audrey Hepburn did a "loverly" job at the role of eliza dolittle.

Another great song in Barnum is this one

 

Come Follow The Band lyrics

 

Come follow the band

Wherever it's at

Let both of your feet, beat, time to the drum

And feel your heart go rat 'a' tat tat

 

A flag in your hand

A plume in your hat

Petallions of brass, pass, and catch the light

Is there a sight that's sweeter then that?

 

See the pretty lady toss that baton high ain't she cute as a daisy

Watch the fellow with the big bass drum go by

Ain't ya glad that you stayed

Hear the trombone play the Oompah pah

Ain't it drivin' you crazy

Don't ya be so darn lazy

Better hurry 'n' join that big parade

 

Up out of your seat

Down off of the stand

Step out to the sweet beat the bugle plays

A sound that you'll remember all your days

And when you see the leader proudly raise his hand

Just follow the band

 

Hear the trumpet blast

And the hornet blare

Hear the boom of the bass

And the rattle of the snare

With the sweetest burst of melody I know

It's the piccolo

 

Hear the silver tone of the xylophone

Hear the glide ansd the bellow of the slide trombone

With a burst of crystal listen to it peal

It's the glockenspiel

 

With a most majestic manner you'll remember all your life

Come xylophone, come saxophone, come susiphone, come fife

Wow johnm, I just spent the last hour looking at all the great pictures and even better, listening to the incredible music!! Some of it I recognized, but most of it, I've never heard before. Where's it from? I completely forgot about the film, "Duet For One". She was excellent in that. Very sad. Did I read the posts correctly, are you seeing Marni Nixon, tonight? What is she doing? This thread is great. Keep it coming!

But she looks horrible in so many of those photos, the ones where she looks really old, I mean. :(

 

Anyway why not discuss something happier? Have you heard of "Barnum" the musical? One of the best songs in the show is called "Colors of My Life". Here are the lyrics:

 

Barnum:

 

The colors of my life

 

Are bountiful and bold,

 

The purple glow of indigo,

 

The gleam of green and gold.

 

The splendor of the sunrise,

 

The dazzle of a flame,

 

The glory of a rainbow,

 

I'd put 'em all to shame.

 

No quiet browns and grays,

 

I'll take my days instead

 

And fill them till they overflow

 

With rose and cherry red!

 

And should this sunlit world

 

Grow dark one day,

 

The colors of my life

 

Will leave a shining light

 

To show the way...

 

The splendor of a sunrise,

 

The dazzle of a flame,

 

The glory of a rainbow,

 

I'd put 'em all to shame...

 

Charity:

 

The colors of my life

 

Are softer than a breeze.

 

The silver gray of eiderdown,

 

The dappled green of trees.

 

The amber of a wheat field,

 

The hazel of a seed,

 

The crystal of a raindrop,

 

Are all I'll ever need.

 

Your reds are much too bold,

 

In gold I find no worth.

 

I'll fill my days with sage and brown

 

The colors of the earth,

 

And if from by my side

 

My love should roam,

 

The colors of my life

 

Will shine a quiet light

 

To lead him home.

You appear to be very angry regarding Julie Andrews. What's up with that? Did she steal your lunch money or something? Lots of negative posts throughout this thread. It was creeping me out. I was confused why you kept returning to the thread. As for those songs, if you want us to appreciate them, why not post them so we can hear them? Just reading lyrics is pretty dull; and, frankly, not something I want to do. I'll listen to the songs, though. I've never heard of "Barnum". Assuming it's about the circus guy, that's not too appealing to me. I hate the circus. Why do you like it so much?

I love the lyrics because then you can sing along with them. Here is another one from this great show. :)

Album - Barnum

 

Lyrics - Love Makes Such Fools Of Us All

 

 

Jenny Lind:

 

Botrom all grans,

 

U tom all tid,

 

Charlikens ler och lockar.

 

Charlekens vind,

 

Branner som eld,

 

Spranger den hook-sta mur.

 

Botrom all grans,

 

U tom all tid,

 

Charlekens dorskop oss fur

 

Love knows no rules,

 

Love has no time,

 

Love laughs at rhyme and reason,

 

Sweeping the stage,

 

Mad or sublime,

 

Knowing no age or season.

 

Wise men and fools,

 

Playing love's game,

 

Bend to the same sweet treason.

 

Love's silver song,

 

Swift as a flame,

 

Bends to the strongest wall.

 

Love knows no rules,

 

Love has no time,

 

Love makes such fools of us all.

And as good as those songs are, they keep getting better! :D

 

One Brick At A Time lyrics

Album - Barnum

 

Lyrics - One Brick At A Time

 

 

Charity:

 

The Lord gave each and everyone

 

The spunk to do what can't be done

 

The brawn, the brain, the courage and the heart

 

The strength to bend the strongest bar

 

The will to reach the farthest star

 

It's just a case of learning how to start.

 

To build a tower up so high to a cloud you'll anchor

 

Build it one tiny brick at a time

 

Bucks multiply till a bum's a banker

 

Just begin with a thin silver dime

 

That empty feild it can yeild miles and miles of flowers

 

You don't need no magic powers

 

Just a seed and showers

 

From the floor to the sky

 

You can soar if you're wise enough to climb

 

One brick at a time

 

Men:

 

To build a ship that's built to last

 

Charity:

 

You lay the keel than raise the mast

What does it matter to you? If others can post stuff that many don't like, why make any exceptions?

 

But wait, because the musical keeps getting better and better!

 

 

There Is A Sucker Born Every Minute lyrics

 

Artist - Barnum soundtrack

 

Album - Barnum

 

Lyrics - There Is A Sucker Born Every Minute

 

 

Music: Cy Coleman

 

Lyrics: Michael Stewart

 

Book: Mark Bramble

 

Premiere: Wednesday, April 30, 1980

 

There is a sucker born every minute

 

Each time the second hand sweeps to the top

 

Like dandelions up they pop,

 

Their ears so big, their eyes so wide.

 

And though I feed ?em bonafide baloney

 

With no truth in it

 

Why you can bet I'll find some rube to buy my corn.

 

?Cause there's a sure-as-shooting sucker born a minute,

 

And I'm referrin' to the minute you were born.

 

Each blessed hour brings sixty of ?em

 

Each time the wooden cuckoo shows his face

 

Another sucker takes his place,

 

And plunks his quarter on the line

 

To buy my brand of genuine malarky.

 

God bless and love ?em!

 

But don't feel sad or hoppin' mad or cause a scene

 

?Cause there's a sure-as-shooting sucker born a minute,

 

But M'am you mighta been the minute in between.

 

There is a sucker born every minute

 

Each time the second hand sweeps to the top

 

Like dandelions up they pop,

 

Their ears so big, their eyes so wide.

 

And though my tale is bonafide baloney,

 

Just let me spin it,

 

And ain't no man who can resist me wait and see

 

?Cause there's a sure-as-shooting sucker born a minute,

 

And friends the biggest one excluding none is me!

What's the point? To see how beautiful the lyrics are. If you want to hear the whole song, then get the album. I will not post bootlegs or other materials here that will deprive the authors from receiving the proper royalty fees.

 

Here'a another great song! :D

 

 

Bigger Isn't Better lyrics

 

Bigger isn't better

Taller isn't braver

Stronger isn't always wise

 

Smaller isn't necessarily the lesser

Guts can come in any size

 

Lady luck can favor

Just a little shaver

Over one who's 6-foot-3

 

Brains in any tussle

Mop the floor with muscle

Bet your life I'm glad I'm me

 

(Chorus:)

Bigger isn't keener

Larger isn't bolder

Higher might be low inside

When you need to lean upon a friendly shoulder

Narrow's just as good as wide

See the mighty lion sittin there and crying bitten by a tiny flea

Mammoth was colossal what's he now? A fossil!

Bet your life I'm glad I'm me

 

What strong and hope they lag along

Get brains and heart

That handsome hunk might be a Lilliputian medley,

Proven consequently...

Though he shows his shoulders twice as big as boulders

If his brain's a tiny pea

When your in a pickle

He ain't worth a nickel

Bet your life I'm...Bet your life I'm glad I'm me

 

(Spoken)

Ladies and Gentlemen together for the first time

Mister PT Barnum's two star attractions

General Top Dog and Jumbo!

 

That's some elephant!

 

Aw, isn't the little guy cute?

 

Let me see, let me see!

 

BRANDON, get back here!

 

I'm OK Mom!

 

(Back to Singing)

The dinosaur's no more, the dear old dodo's dead,

But right there on that floor some ants will still be treadin after Armageddon

Bet there isn't a hero, weight is less than zero

Height ain't worth a hoot in hell

Show me any hunk of man to match the spunk of

Tiny Tim or Little Nell

Giants look so awesome folks are scared to cross em'

None the less I guarantee

Small as Yankee Doodle if he's in the moodle beat the whole

Caboodle using just his noodle...

Bet your life I'm glad I'm ME!!!

Bootlegs? Isn't the album available? By the way, it's a copyright infringement to post lyrics, without the express approval of the author. You're something. In less than 24 hours, you've gone from welcoming to obsessively angry. We'll agree to disagree on this.

Just avoid the subject of JA and you'll find me just as welcoming as ever! :)

 

As for the songs, I'm pretty sure posting them all over the place is almost certain to deprive authors of royalty payments.
