WINTER WILL COME, adapted lyrics by Jonathan Caswell
(Sung to the tune of “Portobello Road” from the 1971 Disney movie, BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS)
Winter will come, winter will blow
Into the cracks where weather will show
Places in the window frame with frost undertow—
You’ll find what needs mending when winter winds blow…
You’ll catch yourself cold as the winter winds start to blow!
All-season tires,
Hot woodstove fires,
Warm jammies scented with flannel bouquet…
Brand new snow shovels,
Weather-tight hovels,
The joy of a snow-covered bright sunny day.
Safe driving lessons,
Counseling sessions
Make these dark days seem more safe and secure…
Holiday greetings,
Clandestine meetings,
Excitement abounds to help us endure!
Not so depressing,
Thanksgiving dressing,
Turkey and fixings to fill us up good…
Electric heat rising,
The bill not surprising,
A false fireplace with bright plastic wood!
Christmas is coming,
Businessmen humming,
Decorations up since nearly July…
Black Friday nearing,
Storekeepers fearing
No one is left who can come in and buy.
People crave sunshine,
Snowy roads one line,
No passing done but for four-wheeled and plows…
Thinking of summer,
Winter’s a bummer,
Can’t wait for bikinis and green, leafy boughs!
WINTER WILL COME—winter will blow
Into the cracks where weather will show
Places in the window frame with frost undertow—
You’ll find what needs mending when winter winds blow,
You’ll catch yourself cold when the winter winds start to blow!
