  • It is beautiful out there
    It is 60 degrees warmer in the refrigerator than it is outside
    Ice forms on whiskers
    Coats, mittens and hats piled six feet high in the entry
    Mussed up hair known as "hat-head"
    Makeup is out of the question, it will run when the cold brings the tears and the snot runs from the nose
    Rouge would be redundant
    Performers doing their best to cover great songs
    Fishermen telling tales
    No fingers or toes frostbitten today
    It ain't pretty but it is here
    It is warm inside
    There is a song in that
