Got up this morning and I tried to start my car
All it did was spit and sputter, it wouldn’t go very far
Man at the gas station said it was the battery
Said he could fix me up for a small fee

Winter! I love you so
Winter! Can’t wait to go out the door
Winter! Look at all that snow
Winter! All right, it’s twenty below

Got me a new pair of gloves but I lost ’em the very next day
The frostbite on my hands soon should go away
I love it when the days are gray and snow falls from above
You would never catch me movin’ to Florida

Cuz I love winter! You make my day
Winter! It stays and stays and stays and stays
Winter! Look at all that snow
Winter! All right, it’s twenty below

Went outside, slipped on the ice and broke my ankle
Now I got some Tylenol with codeine for the pain
Pretty soon it will be green and spring will bring the rain
Then we’ll just be sittin’ around wishin’ it was winter again

Winter! You’re so damn good
Winter! Love you more than anybody should
Winter! Look at all that snow
Winter! All right, it’s twenty below

COOL MUSIC FOR A BIG DUMB WORLD: Bean Hoy's songs "are a laundry list of local and national maladies, often depicted with a dark sense of humor. As often as not, the music is as playful as the words. All in all, a reflection of inane pop culture, where one no longer condemns the plastic world around us but instead videotapes it for later when there's nothing else on." –LAX magazine ... more
