New Lyrics to Traditional Christmas Songs (by Eva)

When the weather distresses you, make up songs!

edmweather-3jan2015To Let it Snow (Nov. 2016)

The weather outside is dreary
And all the work is scary
Wish there were no place to go
It could snow, it could snow, it could snow

To Silver Bells (Nov. 2014 blizzard)

City sidewalks, blust’ry sidewalks
Parkas, mitts, scarves, and tuques
In the air there’s the chill of
The arctic

Children bundled, people troubled
Meeting drift after drift
And on ev’ry street corner
You’ll see

Blowing snow, drifting snow
It’s blizzard time in the city
People wrapped, it’s a fact
Cars swimming in the deep snow

Strings of tire tracks, slipp’ry stop lights
Colours bleached by the snow
As the people rush home from
The workday

Hear the snow crunch, see the kids hunch
This is Edmonton’s scene
And above all the blowing
You’ll hear

Drifting snow, sifting snow
It’s blizzard time in the city
People wrapped, it’s a fact
Cars swimming in the deep snow
