Snow Is Falling 'Round

Listen (MP3)
Listen (RealAudio)

Oh how lovely January, January ,
Snow is falling on the prairie, on the prairie
Three more feet.
Three more feet.

Last week it was San Francisco
San Francisco
We had insalata misto
By the fistful, by the fistful
And fresh fruit
And fresh fruit

Oh how lovely when we're sleeping, when we're sleeping,
And we dream of California, California.
Long white beach.
Long white beach.

And we dream that we are swimming, we are swimming,
In the gentle warm Pacific, warm Pacific,
Watch for sharks.
Watch for sharks.

As we feel the warmth of water, warmth of water,
Could this be a dream we're sorry for, dream we're sorry for.
Change the bed.
Change the bed.
