GUEST,John Bowden (not a typo!) Lyr Req: Favorite Things Parody - Rosalie Sorrells (2) RE: Lyr Req: Parody from Rosalie Sorrells 05 Aug 17


I don't know if these are the complete lyrics - it's called "a snippet", so there may be more:

wretched excesses of wine and spaghetti
Ginsberg and Corso, Genet, Ferlingheti
marijuana and yoga and strange happenings
these are a few of my favorite things
hashish and opium, all you can find
psilocybin and methedrine blowing my mind
and that expanded feeling LSD brings
these are a few of my favorite things

when the fuzz comes and I'm busted
and I'm feeling oh so sad
I'll just swallow a few of my favorite things
and then I won't feel so bad

mandrake root salad, food strange and mad
Hieronymus Bosch and the Marquis de Sade
erotica fancy, erotica straight
these are the things that just make me feel great

blue scaly monsters clawing with black nails
absinthe and Spanish fly in my cocktails
Zen Buddhist monks with their yings and their yangs
these are a few of my favorite thangs

Timothy Leary and his holy work
Ken Kesey, John Cage, and the great Roland Kirk
and wild-eyed mystics reading I Chings
these are a few of my favorite things

when the fuzz comes and I'm busted
and me and the [cling clay swing?]
I'll just swallow a few of my favorite things
and then I won't know a thing
