It's So Cold

from by Chris Shepard



As the snow turns to ice
It scrapes the bottom and sides of my car
I wish I had a garage

It's so cold, I might slip
My hands are chapped and so are my lips
And the snowman's smile has fallen

It's so cold...

Leaves blow across the snow
Bare branches are about to break
They've had all they can take

It's so cold, Kitty won't get out of bed
His nose is chapped and red
He said "Let's not venture out"

It's so cold...

The zero degree wind shear
Lifts my hair above my ears
White whirlwinds from the roof

When the snow has turned to ice
We'll run a hotel for the mice
My feet are like ice. Yikes! It's cold!

It's so cold...

Listen to what the weatherman told ya
Hitch a ride to sunny Minnesota

Time to get out and shovel snow
Get ready (1 minute, GO!)
It's all ice!

It's so cold...
