On this chilly winter day,
I must look out, look out
I must look both ways twice!
There is so much snow out there,
It is hard for me to see the black ice.
I must walk slow,walk steady,
I must walk along the same pace,
Because, if I don't,
I may fall down on my face.

Oh, how I got to get out of here
And find someplace warm.
Or, at least find a place,
Where every other day
There isn't a snowstorm.
It's so cold and bitter outside,
I feel like I got ice
Hanging from my chin.
I must find a beach or an island,
Where the heat will blanket my skin.
So someone please take me to Hawaii,
Or, maybe, Mexico.
Just take me to somewhere
Where all I see isn't snow.

But, I know that this won't happen soon,
So I must accept my fate,
That I must live through another
Winter's day with 10 billion snowflakes.
So now I must look out, look out,
Look both ways twice.
And I will try to fall down
On some nasty black ice.
I must walk slow, walk steady,
Walk along at the same pace.
Because, if I don't,
I will fall down on my face.
Oh, I must get out of here
Before the next snowstorm,
And find a place that is
Forever warm.

Like the day I was born.

Like the day I was born.
