Nope. Still don’t wanna build a snowman.

I wrote this back in February of last year, and for some reason I started thinking of it again this weekend. Really, it works best if you have the music playing in the background while you’re reading it.


Maybe you’ve seen “Frozen”. Maybe you’ve been frozen. Either way, I think you can relate to how I changed the song’s words, to reflect my feelings about winter. If you’re not familiar with the song, just ask any kid. If they don’t have the soundtrack or a karaoke version, they can probably still hum the tune from memory.


“I Don’t Want To Build a Snowman”
(sung to the tune of Do You Want to Build a Snowman)
I don’t wanna build a snowman.
Come on, are you crazy?
I’m not going near that frozen door
Call me a bore
I’m not going to freeze today.

I’m used to being warm
and when I’m not
I wish that I could die!

I don’t wanna get the frostbite.
I don’t want to see fingers white.

Go away, Winter.
Okay? Bye…

I don’t wanna build a snowman.
Or get hit with wet snowballs.
I think the outside may be for you,
I don’t like turning blue
and suffering from falls.

(Just hangin’ at home.)

I’ll stoke a fire or two
Staying in my room,
and at least then I won’t die.

Please don’t make me go out there,
People are asking when it will end.
They say their skin has turned to ice,
Out there it’s not so nice:
Just go back in.

We’re not such a fan
Of this icy land,
But what are you gonna do?

I don’t wanna build a snowman. [sniff]



So … should I post my next great song, “Stop the Snow”?


But … I’m so cool!

  1. We just got hit by a crazy blizzard here in New York City. I often dream of going outside after a snowstorm and making snow angels or riding in a winter wonderland. The last two days, however, I have only left the apartment to go down to the basement and throw out some boxes. It isn’t cold and wet inside the building.

    1. Exactly my reaction to snowstorms. My wife, who hails from southern Missouri, was all about getting out and enjoying the snow, until about the second day she experienced it … then she joined me watching it through the window.

      New York and the rest of the East Coast has been very much on everyone’s minds the last few days!
