The Lyrics

yes, I'm bein' followed by my own shadow
Own shadow, own shadow
Leaping and hoppin, I saw my shadow
Own shadow, own shadow

Now they say winter's six more weeks
Snow to plow
Boots to squeak
Oh, they say winter's six more weeks
Ooh
I'll go burrow down once more
I'll go to sleep and rest my eyes
I made all the people cry

Yes, I won't have to work no more
ooh, at least for another year

Yes, I'm being followed by my own shadow
Own shadow, own shadow
Leapin' and hoppin', I saw my shadow
My shadow, my shadow

You know this is a sweet deal
Being Punxsutawney Phil
Oh, being Punxsutawney Phil
Ooh, I can attract a crowd
They see my nose, they see my mouth
All my teeth, north and south
Yes, all the people see my mouth
Ooh, I don't have to talk..

Didn't take long to see it, I saw my shadow, bright
Didn't take long to see it
And I gave the crowd delight

I'm being followed by my own shadow
Own shadow, own shadow
Leapin and hoppin', I saw my shadow
My shadow, my shadow
my shadow, my shadow..

DKTOS but you seem to have picked a good one for the new topic. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and judge this as poetry...555
