Heidi Starr's tribute to John: John's Favorite Things
(Lyrics from Heidi's performance at our benefit dinner for the Director's Discretionary Fund, March 31, 2019)
Musical selections that always inspire,
John leads his singers through brimstone and fire,
Gorgeous cantatas with woodwinds and strings,
THESE ARE A FEW OF OUR FAVORITE THINGS
Imitating soprani or belting like Merman
We love singing all tongues, tho' we bitch about the German.
Cool boyish hairdos, big watches, no rings,
THESE ARE A FEW OF OUR FAVORITE THINGS.
 
Although his schedule is often quite frantic,
his taste in old movies is downright romantic.
His humor is priceless, his punchlines just ZING!
THESE ARE A FEW OF OUR FAVORITE THINGS....
Where's my pencil?
Mary's got one!
I feel such the CAD...
I simply remember my favorite things,
AND THEN I DON'T FEEL SO BAD.
Hot cars and Cosmos and bright shiny sneakers,
Perfect acoustics and roofs that are leakers....
Carded at 40, of youth, you're a King!
THESE ARE A FEW OF OUR FAVORITE THINGS..
Wielding the baton, he's really quite swanky,
sweating profusely, but alas, has no hankie!
His Valentine's birthday, such joy does it bring...
THESE ARE A FEW OF OUR FAVORITE THINGS.
 
Convertible camaro, the color of toMAHto,
Ladies, can you sing that with much less viBRAHto?
Like Julie Andrews! Her voice it just rings,
THESE ARE A FEW OF OUR FAVORITE THINGS..
Is there AC?
Turn is lower!
Where're my PANTS, E gad!
I simply remember my favorite things
AND THEN WE DON'T FEEL......  SOOOOO BAD!
