The Lyrics

A piste is a downhill ski trail.
The Piste

Come on baby, let's hit the piste,
Come on baby, let's hit the piste.
Take your goggles and your wax, and grab your skis.
Sno-ow. Piste, baby, baby, piste.
Oh, yeah—in the East,
Slidin' on those icy sheets, you might need cleats.

We're gonna be leapin' right off the ground.
Yeah, we're gonna be leapin' right off the ground.
But don't twisty-twist an edge
Or else you might fall down.
Now bend those knees—kneel and release.
Or else, back together they're pieced.

You should see my little niece,
All decked out in Polar Fleece.
She's got on heavy socks,
So her feet won't freeze.
Baby, don't twist an ankle; twist
Away from those pine trees!
That was close—you barely missed!
Now we're on rocks,
And I'm really pissed!

John - Thanks for the cool thoughts. It's been 95 to 99 here for longer than I like. Maybe this song will bring in a cool front that is forcast for tomorrow. Nice parody.

I've always preferred apres-ski, but this was good. 555

Well, personally I fence on a piste - I find if I stick a plank onto each foot then I start to go rapidly downhill... ;-)

Phil - I pissed on and electric fence once... Just once mind you. Take about shocking the senses.
