Listen to the song


Lyrics below. Feel free to sing along.


Snow is comin', I saw it in the paper

I bought some chains and a plastic ice scraper

I looked up at the heavens and gave a sigh

'Cause y'know that I get really down and I consider leavin' town

When I see that white stuff falling from the sky

00:00 / 03:36

When I was a kid, I thought snow was cool, it looked so nice and closed down school

And we built snowmen out in the yard

But now that stuff has lost its thrill and snow is just a bitter pill

And one that I've been takin' pretty hard


Outside it’s snowin', the winds are a-blowin' and all the while I'm knowin'

I’ll be trapped here for days

Of all kinds of weather I think snow is such a pain

'Cause you can’t get stuck in the wind and you don’t have to shovel rain


We can seed the clouds up in the sky, beat the heat, dehumidify

But when that snow comes, our hands are tied

I admit it might have more appeal if I were a polar bear or seal

But I'm just me and I just wanna hide


I don't ski and I don't sled but I once slipped and broke my head

Walkin' in that winter wonderland. I’m gonna move someplace where it doesn't snow

Like Timbuktu or Oklahoma, Puerto Rico or maybe Japan
