The Lyrics

Another venture into the Land of the Homeless: this applies to a certain NYC homeless shelter, but it could also apply to the NYC buses, subway cars, and some offices! OS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kP5O_NUhrK0, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBOgH5f36cQ
It’s unnecessarily cold!
It’s unnecessarily cold!
We’re homeless in summer.
This shelter’s a bummer
And unnecessarily cold.

Little Rita is thin as a wire.
Little Rita is thin as a wire.
She rushed in con brio
And said, “Ay, que frio!”
Little Rita is thin as a wire.

What up!
Whatcha thinking of?
Cold from the A/C!
Turn it down!
Oh, oh, oh!

Oh, Joanie, she’s big as a whale.
Oh, Joanie, she’s big as a whale.
Her quilt has few lumps,
But she still gets goosebumps.
Oh, Joanie, she’s big as a whale.

LaWanda, she freeze’ in her dream.
LaWanda, she freeze’ in her dream.
She’s in Arctic waters
With Inuit daughters.
She’s fishing from ice in her dream.

What’s up?
What is going on?
Cold as the Yukon—
S’katchewan!
Brr-rrr-rrr!

It’s unnecessarily cold!
It’s unnecessarily cold!
In summer, we’re willin’
For some indoor chillin’,
But it’s unnecessarily cold.

We think that you’re crazy
To jack up the A/C;
Your bills must be high!
If you overdo it,
We’ll feel like, “Oh, screw it!
Why should we even try?”

Matilda is 90-plus years!
Matilda is 90-plus years!
She wears seven blankets!
She asks, “Do they crank it
In winter to 90 degrees?”

You’re freezing us down to our souls!
It’s unnessa—
Unnessa—
Too effin’,
Too effin’—
Unnecessarily cold!


*****

(alternative final bridge)

To live in a shelter,
We don’t want to swelter.
Room temps would be nice!
If you overdo it,
We’ll feel like, “Oh, screw it!
We’re in a block of ice!”
