The Lyrics

In celebration of the hardest race on earth - The Iditarod - starts on the first Saturday in March. Freezing their giblets off - they can have it!

A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
Whoa-wo-mush, whoa-wo-mush
I got a whole big desire to be first
When I hit Nome

It’s cold, skies are grey
‘Cause Anchorage is where, at just last night, I stayed
I've got a sled, sixteen dogs, first Saturday - in March

Whoa-wo-mush, whoa-wo-mush
And there’s a whole lot of things might occur
‘Fore I hit Nome

Might drown! I might freeze!
Spend lots of time in minus-y degrees
The snow might swirl and make my huskies sneeze! It might…

Whoa-wo-mush, whoa-wo-mush
If gets too cold, find igloo for dweller
‘Fore I hit Nome

Well I'm getting numb alright
Toes gonna lose - frostbite
It’s for my doggy style that I’m well known
In this I-dit-ar-od
I’m the talk of explor-ing men

The rain wets me through
I am so gonna end up with the flu
I’m a snow whiz with everything I do – child’s play!

Whoa-wo-mush, whoa-wo-mush
Mind to partake not of snow that’s yeller
‘Fore I hit Nome’s air
I gotta hope bells for me don’t kneller
‘Fore I hit Nome

"Mind to partake not of snow that's yeller" - you must have listened to Frank Zappa before you wrote this. LOL and 5's.

Hey, that's how I get to work everyday. I too was waiting for the Zappa nod. Good job.

Quite an adventure, Mer & Pip! Dog sledding sounds very exciting! Reminds me of Iditarod related movies such as Snow Dogs and this Skeet Ulrich movie Chilly Dogs. Mush on 555's!
