My Favorite Sounds

By Marielle Carlisle

(sung to the tune of “My Favorite Things” from Sound of Music)

Pitter and patter of rain on the window

Screeching garage door when Daddy returns home

Giggles and laughter with loved ones around

These are a few of my favorite sounds

“I love you”, “thank you” from happy two-year old

Heat humming on when I have become too cold

Newspaper hitting the ground with a pound

These are a few of my favorite sounds

Timer for cookies is finally beeping

Silence when baby is finally sleeping

Groovin’ to tunes while I’m driving around

These are a few of my favorite sounds

When the cat barfs

When the kids cry

When a curse I hear

I simply remember my favorite sounds, and then I unplug my ears!


  1. Very clever Marielle now I'll have that tune in my head all day, giggle.

  2. This is so fun! What a great idea. Thanks for making me smile--and think of a few of my own favorite sounds: squeak of the mailbox when my tax return comes/wind in the pines and my four-year-old's hums...

  3. LOL...I love it Marielle! Hmmmm a few of my favorites sounds? sleigh bells, a baby's belly laugh, even though I thought I would never say this...my husband's snoring. If I heard it, it would mean he was home with me and not 600 miles away!
