The Lyrics

Ordinarily, I would've posted this last Friday, but like I said, I was tired. In any case, enjoy the parody!
Whoa, here he comes,
That Old Man Winter again,
Freezin’ me up with his icy storm.
Hey, I don’t know,
Oh, what I ever would do
‘Cause I never, ever felt so warm.
Hey!

And I can’t recall any gloves at all.
Oh baby, these blow that man away.

They’ve got what it takes.
So tell me why can’t these be gloves?
They’re on my hands.
Oh, tell me why can’t these be gloves?

I tell myself,
“Hey, we’re not all Russian,”
But if we freeze in Hell, then we can’t hold limes.
All I know,
You’ve got to pass to win,
And I’ll be damned if I get frostbite all the time.
Hey!

No, I can’t recall any gloves at all.
Oh baby, these blow that man away.

Woo!
They’ve got what it takes.
So tell me why can’t these be gloves?
I put ‘em right on my hands.
Hey, tell me why can’t these be gloves?

[guitar solo]

Woo!
They’ve got what it takes.
So tell me why can’t these be gloves?
They’re on my hands.
Tell me why can’t these be gloves?

Baby, why can’t these be gloves?
Got to know why can’t these be gloves?
I wanna know why can’t these be gloves?
