The Lyrics

Raised on S. Florida beaches, I simply never adjusted to Wisconsin and Minnesota winters during my 13 year tenure (UW-Madison and St. Olaf College). Back in the south and loving it now.
Ain't no sunshine in St. Paul
Only darkness every day
Ain't no sunshine in St. Paul
And it's always so dismal
That's why I moved away

Wonder where the sun has gone
Think this time it's gone to stay
Ain't no sunshine in St. Paul
And it's always so dismal
That's why I moved away

(refrain)

And I'm cold, I'm cold, I'm cold
I'm cold, I'm cold, I'm cold, I'm cold
I'm cold, I'm cold, I'm cold, I'm cold
I'm cold, I'm cold, I'm cold, I'm COLD!
Yeah I'm gonna leave this place once for all
Cuz there Ain't no sunshine in St. Paul

Ain't no sunshine in St. Paul
It's not warm and it's not nice
Ain't no sunshine in St. Paul
And it's always so dismal
That's why I moved away

Did you hear Anna Nicole Smith lost 85 pounds? She went to Minnesota and froze her ass off! It's pretty cold here in Sopranoland, too.

Michael--Funny that you mention that. I gained weight after moving south. I was certainly freezing mine off.

Mark L - I've been meaning to look at this one and then I played an Eva Cassady CD tonight that has the song on it. I was scanning the list of "new entries" real quick before signing off for the evening and spotted this one. Of course, having "Paul" in the title also caught my eye. Excellent job! Freezing Fives skate across the ice to you here. 'night all...

had to give you a couple 4's, didn't like that "i know" refrain in the original, and somewhat disappointed that you didn't do something more with it
