Winter in the Maritimes

In this deep freeze we call winter

It can go one of two ways

The chill can cut you to the bone

Or snow makes you shovel for days

So we all just hunker down

And have a drink or two

And bundle up against the cold

Hoping we don’t get the flu

 

If you want a real good party

You’ll find it in the kitchen

Sharing lots of stories

About the weather we’re bitchin

 

In this deep freeze we call winter

It can go one of two ways

The chill can cut you to the bone

Or snow makes you shovel for days

So we all just hunker down

And have a drink or two

And bundle up against the cold

Hoping we don’t get the flu

 

Is it cold enough out there for you?

We ask each other in jest

Where do we put all the snow that’s coming?

In that pile with all the rest

 

In this deep freeze we call winter

It can go one of two ways

The chill can cut you to the bone

Or snow makes you shovel for days

So we all just hunker down

And have a drink or two

And bundle up against the cold

Hoping we don’t get the flu

 

We wear so many layers

To protect us from the cold

Winter ice makes it hard to walk

Take it slow, like you are old

 

In this deep freeze we call winter

It can go one of two ways

The chill can cut you to the bone

Or snow makes you shovel for days

So we all just hunker down

And have a drink or two

And bundle up against the cold

Hoping we don’t get the flu

 

Did you get your winter tires?

Oh good, were they on sale?

Watch out for the other drivers

Starts a common winter tale

 

In this deep freeze we call winter

It can go one of two ways

The chill can cut you to the bone

Or snow makes you shovel for days

So we all just hunker down

And have a drink or two

And bundle up against the cold

Hoping we don’t get the flu

 

It’s so cold outside

I just might stay home

Avoid the chill from head to toe

From inside my snow covered dome

 

In this deep freeze we call winter

It can go one of two ways

The chill can cut you to the bone

Or snow makes you shovel for days

So we all just hunker down

And have a drink or two

And bundle up against the cold

Hoping we don’t get the flu

 

Did you get yourself dug out yet?

From that blizzard, we had last week?

Watch your back, now, winter’s not over

When it all melts I hope there’s no leak

 

In this deep freeze we call winter

It can go one of two ways

The chill can cut you to the bone

Or snow makes you shovel for days

So we all just hunker down

And have a drink or two

And bundle up against the cold

Hoping we don’t get the flu
