The Lyrics

Why is it so cold?
It's so chilly cold that I could walk on water
Why is it so cold?
Below freezing, how I wish that it was hotter
It's so cold
You'll be thrilled to know my cheeks have all turned blue
I'm stuck out in a blizzard
I'll soon be frozen through

Buried in the snow
And my frozen tush is sticking to my left hand
Buried in the snow
Somehow lately I feel like a popsicle stand
I'm so cold
The snow's buried me and I am losing heat
And I wonder if I'm frost bit
Cause I can not feel my feet

Still the cold wind blows

My mind is weak
My breath is cold
Oh, I should have just stayed in
My fingers ache
Too much at stake
I could be a has-been

Frozen in the snow
Did you really think you needed this vacation?
Frozen in the snow
Just a couple miles north of the ranger station
Didn't know
That a camping choice means more than making s'mores
It's too late when you're frozen
In the great outdoors

Thanks Stuart. Since moving to Washington (last month) my mind has been focused on warmer climes... "my cheeks have all turned blue" was leading up to the frozen tush too.. all four cheeks turned blue.

Well done, Tim. Thank you for reminding me why I do most of my camping in the summer.
