{Sung to "Up on the Housetop"}

Up in the Northland, winterís here
the days are short and the nights are clear
And when temps reach zero degrees
everything has started to freeze

Ice and snow, a cold wind blows
Ice and snow, a cold wind blows
Up in the Northland, slick, slick, slick
It is hard to move real quick

Wearing a scarf to hide my nose
and extra socks to warm the toes
A ten pound coat is what I wear
to protect me from the frigid air

Ice and snow, a cold wind blows
Ice and snow, a cold wind blows
Up in the Northland, slick, slick, slick
It is hard to move real quick

Walking like a penguin over snow and ice
trying not to fall but slipping twice
Starting the car two hours before
taking a trip to the grocery store

Ice and snow, a cold wind blows
Ice and snow, a cold wind blows
Up in the Northland, slick, slick, slick
It is hard to move real quick

Six more inches then came down
making it hard to get downtown
And driving now is becoming a feat
when all the roads are covered with sleet

Ice and snow, a cold wind blows
Ice and snow, a cold wind blows
Up in the Northland, slick, slick, slick
It is hard to move real quick

Five hours later, I reach the mall
and I finally start to thaw
Across the lot I now traverse
in a snowstorm thatís getting worse

Ice and snow, a cold wind blows
Ice and snow, a cold wind blows
Up in the Northland, slick, slick, slick
It is hard to move real quick

Safe at home I finally get
and on the couch I warmly sit
In a loud voice I proudly sing
"Six more months and then itís spring"

Ice and snow, a cold wind blows
Ice and snow, a cold wind blows
Up in the Northland, slick, slick, slick
It is hard to move real quick

I tried singing that to "Up on the housetop" and I must have had the wrong tune. (LOL) Neat little jingle though. God bless ya, littlelight
