The Lyrics

Spring is coming to Finland, and all the shades of grey are apparent here...
I close my eyes and picture
The livid Baltic sea
From the skerries of Helsinki
to the islands and the keys

I see the snow's a melting
and streams in spate, hey -
The marshlands and the townscape
With their forty shades of grey

But most of all I see the clouds
above the Helsinki town
And most of all the days are grey
And bleak as eiderdown

Again I feel the dirtiness
The wet mud, dust and clay -
Where the wind is cold and rain is hard
And there's forty shades of grey

Grey, grey, forty shades of grey

I wish that I could have a beer
At terrace of local bar
I'd love to have a party
if the weathers were not that harsh

To see again the sunshine
Through the night on Midsummer day -
I'd walk from home to shore to see
The forty shades of grey

But most of all I see the clouds
above the Helsinki town
And most of all the days are grey
And bleak as eiderdown

Again I feel the dirtiness
The wet mud, dust and clay -
Where the wind is cold and rain is hard
And there's forty shades of grey

With Kansas City, you never know what will come next. 80 degrees (Fahrenheit) yesterday, snowflakes in the air this morning.
