A1c’s high, and my eye doctors frown
It’s getting to me, man, its got me quite down
Cream jelly doughnuts will help me along
And give me the boost age to finish this song.

Guys in white dress shirts with blue stripe-ed ties
Invoke palpitations (and a great deal of sighs)
Still being young, man, I’m out on Spring Fling
These are a few of my favorite things.

DC traffic (as it’s ridin’ my bumper)
Iphones and itunes and insulin pumpers
Brown UPS boxes tied up in strings
These are a few of my favorite things..

Pizza and sundaes and diet cream soda
Chocolate and Cheetos and creamy La Mocha
Life’s not so bad when you look for the good
And exercise it off (you know that you should).

Certain websites (I can’t name, at the present time), they awesomely rock
When I’m feeling blue (as my last pair of socks)
Just turned oh-so-black and my meter reads HI
And I wonder, again- Please tell me why?

Eye drops that burn up my nose and my lashes
Carb-less wonders (is that a stray noodle?!?)
That will be supper- so forget the strudel

I’ve had less painful things (even Shingles raw rashes!)
These are not some of my favorite things!

When the blood spurts
When the shot stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feellllllll...(Like smashing my meter)
So bad!
