The Lyrics

If you do not know the OS, a low bit-rate MP3 can be found here

(Various frustrated yelps and frostbite-induced mutterings)

Shoot! No highways! S'pose they froze!
Eas'ly upset polar bears
Got some trans-husky-nental bobsleigh loads
Just slide on snow with steel
Wow! It's unreal

Got no intoxication - there's no bars!
Sand's somewhat far away
You should try to start the car!

Living in Antarctica - ice, more ice, blizzard-y nation
Living in Antarctica - have to man this weather station
Living in Antarctica - life devoid of germination

Froze my soul

Humpbacks, no lack
Zero miles of railroad track
Short wave radio, valves a-hummin'
Screw this southern pole hole
All night sunshine keeps you awake
Ain't no shopping at McMurdo

Shoes, might have to walk, in snow-kind
Ozone lay'r, we can't find
There's pesky penguins squawking all the time

Living in Antarctica - cold denies all conflagrations
Living in Antarctica - snakes are banned, there's no tax agents
Living in Antarctica - got to love this desolation

Cried when in Antarctica, whipped it out
But it shrivelled in 'Tarctica
Like I'm swimmin'

You skite that I'm a sook, but you don't understand
That outdoor leak, there's just no way
And because it froze, Roald Amundson's blamed

Like auroras? (galoreas!)
Air ain't shitty (Makes one giddy) Squall-es (not small-es)
Icebergs? Hell yea (Microbes? No way!)
Ain't no cities (such a pity!)
No P Diddy! (That's good riddy!)
No planties (They're scanty), Tobogganing - hooray!

Living in Antarctica - tricked me!
Living in Antarctica - where?
Can't walk in or out
Living in Antarctica

I live in Antarctica - stop signs
They ain't been designed, and
I live in Antarctica - sleighs!
I got no chick scene, lays!

Living in Antarctica - Dearth of turfy on the white ground
Living in Antarctica - shits me, freeze-dried chow, why have I ration privation ?
Living in Antarctica - just ice on that Ross there shelf
Living in Antarctica - I'm seal food!

You won't be in danger of upsetting polar bears in Antarctica. This is because they live near the other (north) pole.

Great idea, funny stuff, 5s!

Gotta agree with Yoidy. And a very original idea. Good job 555

Ah ! Merry and I discussed this, but agreed that many a song's lyrics contain historical or factual inaccuracies for the sake of the internal rhyme. Therefore, NP, you win the secret prize we discussed.

All you need to do to collect your prize is to go to Antarctica, and ask the first Polar Bear you find for further instructions :)

If you get lost, ask at Santa's workshop ;)

Brilliant as usual Merry & Pippin, long time recording parodists and still just as talented as ever.

Good stuff, especially "auroras? (galoreas!)" and "Dearth of turfy."

I laughed from the title alone, and thought this was uproariously hilarious! Just saw March of the Penguins again recently, too. 555's

Karen?? I don't see you around here very often. Usually it's on the MB! Oh well, I don't know this song very well, but the content is great.

At least the penguins are well dressed.

Rats. I was gonna do a parody with this title; I just looked it up in the "Parody Search" function to see if it was taken...Oh, well. At least you did a good job with it, cussing aside. As usual, I take off a point for that. Still, nice one. (especially "trans-husky-nental") 544 Kelvins
