Winter in New York

Filed under: New York,Winter — missedmanners @ 4:58 pm

By Me. To the tune of Autumn in New York, obviously.

Winter in New York
Why is it so irritating?
Winter in New York
Cold cuts down the chances of mating.

Shuffling crowds in burkha-like shrouds
Almost don’t seem real…
They’re making me feel – Im cold.

Its Winter in New York
That brings the promise of wet feet.
Winter in New York
It’s cold as the state of Maine.

Sidewalks with mounds of snow.
They trip you and make you slow.

Its Winter in New York
When’s Spring supposed to begin?

Winter in New York
Chapped skin makes you look like a clown.
Oh, Winter in New York,
When S. A. D. gets you run down.

Yes, jaded dancers and gay financers
Who freeze in their mitts,
Will tell you that its not fine.

This Winter in New York
Ladies cover their frizzed hair.
Oh, Winter in New York
Exposing skin will bring pain.

Yes, lovers that bless the dark
Nowhere near frigid Central Park
Greet Winter in New York
How long till it’s over, again?

Winter in New York
That makes you wish you were sweating.
Winter in New York
Fucking snow mixes with rain.

How long will this go on?
I’m ready to for things to thaw.

Its Winter in New York
When’s Spring supposed to begin?

    Report brought to you by “Rotten Jerk Weather Services” – all part of my policy of adding insult to injury from the safety of at least a 3000 mile distance. Cheer up, isn’t brisk weather supposed to clear your head? I wouldn’t know: My windows are open and I’m walking around barefoot in my towel.
