The Lyrics

I really don't know how to ski
Black hills of, Dakota, I'm not gonna go ta
The Andes, Pyrenees, they will not feel my skis
The Rockies, the Catskills, I won't go on those hills, I'm going

Off to the keystone state, there's a range called Poconos
That's where I'm gonna go, and I am going to fall
Angels in the snow, I'm sure that I'll make those when I go
I'll be falling in stuff that does not exist in Tobago
At the Poconos


Black hills of, Dakota, I'm not gonna go ta
The Andes, Pyrenees, they will not feel my skis
The Rockies, the Catskills, I won't go on those hills
My bones will be breaking out in kokomo
I'll fall down fast and then I'll get up slow
Maybe I shouldn't go skiing at poconos

Woe is me, I don't know how to ski

I'll avoid the slopes, Lots of time in the lodge I hope
If I ski then I'll be, praying a lot just like the Pope
You ask what's the point, If I'm scared I'll break joints
I won a trip there for free, And now feel that I have to ski
Over at Poconos

Black hills of, Dakota, I'm not gonna go ta
The Andes, Pyrenees, they will not feel my skis
The Rockies, the Catskills, I won't go on those hills
My bones will be breaking out in kokomo
I'll fall down fast and then I'll get up slow
Maybe I shouldn't go skiing at poconos

I am scared, I'm not at all prepared

Maybe if I chose, not to go to the Poconos
I could play in the snow, and not be scared I will fall
Down on the Poconos

Black hills of, Dakota, I'm not gonna go ta
The Andes, Pyrenees, they will not feel my skis
The Rockies, the Catskills, I won't go on those hills
My bones will be breaking out in kokomo
I'll fall down fast and then I'll get up slow
Maybe I shouldn't go skiing at poconos

Ethan - this is excellent - very creative rhymes: "Black hills of, Dakota, I'm not gonna go ta" ..... but you left in the word " kokomo ", must have been a typokomo: "My bones will be breaking out in kokomo" .... unless you used "kokomo" as an intentional and subtle play on words? In any event, this is a very clever skiing parody, and I give it 555.
