Winter In Old Chicago
Mordewis ap Llys
(While original, this tune does owe much to "The Hippopotamus Song" by Flanders and Swann)
We should have bought groceries before the snow fell
But the weathermen never guess weather so well
So we step on the gas, and our rear slides to hell,
Well, at least we can go forward - sideways
Junior's new snowsuit lost all of one seam
A new purse for my honey came to me in a dream
I may risk my life, but their faces will beam
And my tires may be bald, but they're studded
Remember Phil Jackson, when they played on the skids
We could always afford season tix for the kids
Now we all sit as paupers in their fancy new digs
And demand one more pennant from Michael
