Its winter time

 

It's cold outside

its winter time

and the grass crackles under your feet.

But Im inside

by the fire side

a putting on another load of peat.

----

The snow falls down

theres frost all around,

I can see the children making snow men.

 

And my god its cold

with a wind chill bold,

it hasnt been this cold since who knows when.

----

We have snow on the hills,

out in the winter chill

you can go skiing most of the day.

 

But Id rather use my time

with a bottle of mulled wine

than go out in the cold and play.

----

So I stay inside

by the warm fire side

while the temperature outsides way below naught.

 

And so Im snuggled up warm,

out of the harsh winters storm

a- thinking this cozy little thought.
