"Favorite Things" as written by and Kevin/sermon Krakower....
Like a dog bite, like a bee sting
I don't feel so fucking bad

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudel
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
Then I don't feel so bad

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudel
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
Then I don't feel so bad

Yeah! Yeah!

    General CommentThe Sound of Music is one of my favorite movies, and to have Me first cover this song is fucking awesome. I didn't think anyone could top Julie Andrews, but me first did an amazing job with this song.

    General CommentIs it just me thinking incorrectly, or with this cover, did Me First and The Gimme Gimmes basically just take the opening riff of Bad Religion's Generator, as it sounds awfully similar. Other than that, this cover is excellent.

    General CommentNo, Automatic you are correct, the opening of this song is not from the "sound of music" but rather some crap that the gimme gimmes added in sung to the tune of the opening lines of "Generator"

    General CommentI love this cover. I used to watch the Sound of Music (on Beta) all the time when I was a kid. I love the way the Gimme Gimmes cover songs. They're almost always good.
