The hills are alive……..dah de dum

Posted on

(A moonbeam of loveliness for our world darkened by cynicism.)


My Favourite Things.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.
Sauce on a meat pie, and jocks snugly fittens.
Millions in banknotes all tied up with strings.
These are a few of my favourite things.

New cars, and bare feet on sandy beach walkin’
Bikinis on beach girls set my eyes a-gawkin’
Peroxide in ears, and fried chicken wings.
These are a few of my favourite things.

Rum mixed with coke, and the Simpsons, and full moons.
Rhythmically farting in church to the hymn tunes.
Pulling the wings off march flies every Spring,
These are a few of my favourite thing. (s)

Stabbing the car tyres of noisy transgressors,
Burning the wigs of the barristers and lawyers.
Travelin’ Australia making alien crop rings.
These are a few of my favourite things.

So when the dog bites, and the bees sting your face,
Then Earth rends consuming you in fiery embrace,
It’s no use remembering your favourite things…..
‘Cos we’re going to Hell and the doom that it brings.

  1. So, the crop circles were yours? Stealth and lederhosen all in the one post. You have truly outdone yourself this time, GOF.

  2. Thank you for sparing us an audio post …

    • I’m working on a video version but was having difficulty thinking of an actor suitable for the burning-wig ‘barrister’ role…………..until you came along. πŸ˜‰

    • A voice spoke to me during the night suggesting that I write the lyrics and you sing the songs. GOF and GOM…..sorta like a modern day version of Goffin and King or Bernie Taupin and Elton John. That way we can share the royalties. I know you will use the money wisely.

  3. Such talent should not go unrewarded, GOF. Have you ever considered busking at the Sunday markets in Cairns?

    • Thank you Snowy. What a joy it is to have discerning readers such as yourself……unlike some people (next in line) of little faith. πŸ˜‰
      I tried busking at the markets once but ended up in hospital having shards of eggshells removed from my eyes.

  4. Perhaps don’t give up the day job just yet!

  5. Excellent! Shakespeare isn’t it? Though I can’t remember which play… πŸ˜‰

  6. “It’s part of a larger tragic tale β€˜The Slow Deterioration of GOF’ .”
    There’s a trilogy, and it involves rings and dragons too, right?
    Think I read it.

    • Yep that’s the one Lauowolf, but there’s a sequel coming out which involves psychologists, walking canes and an abundance of alcohol. πŸ˜‰

  7. I’m sure I’ve heard this song somewhere before, but maybe I’m mistaken. πŸ˜€

  8. Peroxide in ears, and fried chicken wings.
    These are a few of my favourite thinga

    Oh GOF, I’m sure they’d refill the barbeque sauce if you’d just ask them.

  9. Oh my goodness. The farting to hymns made me laugh so loud I hurt myself.
    Yes, this is another one going in the Poems by GOF file.
