Song Parody: Stop The Snow

I  first posted this a couple of years ago, but it seemed really  appropriate today, since as I type this there's a winter storm raging  outside. I hate winter storms. Well, only if I have to go out in them,  or pay for heating the house during them, or if it's winter. Otherwise I  don't mind. Anyway,  I worked foolishly hard on this, so I decided to put it up again. 

But  here's the thing: parody songs are really only good if you're familiar  with the original, which in this case is "Let It Go" from Frozen.  If you have kids of a certain age, you've not only heard it, but you're  sick of it. (I'm not--but my kids are all grown up, and I've only seen  the movie once.) If you haven't heard it, you can here:


   Or see the original lyrics here:


  I know what you’re thinking: “Why, Mark? Why?” Good question—I don’t even find it easy. But I present you with: “Stop the Snow”.    

The snow’s piled high almost to my thigh
It’s so cold I want to scream
No sign of spring salvation
I’m stuck in a snow globe dream

The wind howls through windows, bringing swirling snow inside
Couldn’t keep it out, plastic sheets I tried

Let the dog in, his frozen pee
Is an icicle I never want to see
My hands can’t feel—this weather blows
Thanks to the snow
