Nope. Still don't wanna build a snowman.

I posted 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. :)
    I don't want to build a snowman either, would much rather build a sandcastle!

  2. I still haven't seen Frozen, and what with not having children of a certain age, I feel safe in assuming it'll never happen!

    1. I used my grandkids as an excuse--I really loved it, although I've only seen it once (so far). ButI know how you just love musicals!

  3. I haven't seen Frozen either, and I'm not making a sixty mile round trip to see it either. Building a snowman is something I quit decades ago.

    1. I never was the snowman building type. But, much as I hate cold weather, I really loved Frozen--great movie, great music, lots of fun. Still, musical comedies aren't for everyone.

  4. I like building snowmen so that the horses kick them to bits. I don't know why my daughter's nags do it but it always seems to amuse them.

    1. That would amuse me too -- it would be like assaulting winter.

  5. lol, loved it. I could really relate.

  6. Haven't seen Frozen but it looks good to me.

    1. Promise not to tell: I really loved that movie.
