Minus one

by davek

Minus one

It’s minus one outside
So cold ... I’d better flee
It’s minus one outside
Now that minus one is me

It’s minus one outside
Minus one I’ll see you later
Because I’m just sitting here
With my horse by the radiator

The clothes horse that is
Drying my freshly washed smalls
Well I say smalls... but they’re not
They’re not so small at all

My long sleeved thermal vests
And long johns to keep out the cold
But the horse can wear them for now
I’m not going out... I’m not that bold

Some people might say man up
Go and get yourself some balls
If I went out it would be minus 2 from view
They’d both hide inside, now I’m no fool

It’s brrrr minus one outside
But I’m warm inside and hiding
From the cars crashing on the black ice
Slipping... sliding and colliding

It’s minus one outside
I’m not going out and I’m not kidding
Just me and my freshly washed pants
Away from the cars...free from skidding

It’s minus one outside
So cold ... I’d better flee
It’s minus one outside
Now that minus one is

Good, good, great... I think I know how you feel, minus the minute differences between us. Oh, I quite enjoyed this despite the keen sense of way too cold and nasty out - it kind of mirrors here, sometimes! Good to see you, DaVe... more often would be really nice! Cheers matey, Mary Ann xoxo
