(parody lyrics sung to "Homeward Bound")
Minnesota had its snowiest February ever in 2019. I wrote these parody lyrics to relieve cabin fever. They can be sung to Paul Simon's "Homeward Bound."
I’m sitting home for the duration.
No way to drive to my destination.
Looking at my driveway now,
My only thought is “Holy cow!”
And every breath I take, I vow
To buy a blower or hire a plow.
I wish I weren’t snow-day bound.
Snow. So many flakes are falling.
Snow. I know the traffic’s crawling.
Snow. And my snowsuit’s calling silently for me…
Every day’s a record freeze,
With snowbanks way above my knees.
And each gust feels the same to me,
With windchill that I cannot flee.
And every frozen face I see
Reminds me that it’s best to be
It’s safe to stay snow-day bound.
Snow. I just keep retreating.
Snow. This is so defeating.
Snow. And I see it’s sleeting silently on me…
Tonight the storm comes back again,
I’ll shovel walks as best I can.
But all this snow just makes me pout
Will spring come? Well, there is some doubt.
For now I cannot help but shout,
“I need someone to dig me out.”
I still am here, snow-day bound.
Snow. Oh, the wind is grating.
Snow. Winter I am hating.
Snow. But my cocoa’s waiting silently for me.
Silently for me…
