Verses one and two interpolate “My Favorite Things,” which was written by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II . It was first performed by Mary Martin’s character, Maria, in the 1959 Broadway musical, The Sound of Music . Julie Andrews further popularized the song in the 1965 film adaptation . Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens Brown paper packages tied up with strings These are a few of my favourite things The interpolated verse was performed by Ariana at the 2020 Grammy Awards before the main performance of “7 Rings.” She also reportedly Ariana withdraws from an automated teller machine and flexes her cash flow, highlighting the contrast between her favourite things and Maria’s favourite things. She even tweeted this line over a month before the song’s release.
