Rehobeth beachhouse with it’s own elevator
Tickets to football games played by Pete Waiter
Jim Coleman cars get me to PTI
These are a few of the things that I buy

Red grapefruit juice and wide yellow egg noodles
Sky Bars and Kind Bars and bagels and strudels
Cast iron skillets with steaks I can fry
These are a few of the things that I buy

New suits with stripes I can wear to a wedding
Summer straw hats I’m already regretting
Cold wet blue towels from that worker man guy
These are a few of the things that I buy

When a bird gets
In the chimney
When the snow is bad
I simply remember the things I can buy
And then I don’t feel so sad

a parody of "My Favorite Things" from "The Sound of Music" by Rodgers and Hammerstein

I find it ironic that some of Frau Von Trapp's favorite things are some of the things Tony hates. Snow on eyelashes? Please.
