Composition Methods:
LSDJ 4.7.2, Hello Kitty stratocaster guitar & Jam-up Pro iPhone app, sleigh bells, voice

I wanted to write a winter themed song that sounded old fashioned, but then I wanted to play my guitar fast… and then I wanted to make it weird. So I tried to do all three things! Thanks for listening, I hope it makes you giggle. I cut a line about throwing a snowball at my cat… next time.

- - Lyrics - -

When I look around and see the snow on the ground
I’m stricken with a strange affliction
My hand is drawn down, to gather snow and make round
As hard as I try, I can’t resist it

I’m throwing snowballs all day
Throwing snowballs every night
I know it’s naughty but it feels so right
Now’s a good time for a snowball fight

Yeah I know the library
ain’t really the place
but I nearly lost it when I knocked your glasses
off your face

I went to the hospital
They said it’s bad for my health
So I threw a snowball at the doctor
And then I threw a snowball at myself

I’m throwing snowballs all day
I’m throwing snowballs all night
You say I’m up to no good
Well, I say you’re uptight
Now’s a good time for a snowball fight

My friends are fed up
With being hit in the face with snow
But their cheeks look so dang cute
With a rosy red glow
They make really good targets
Because they’re stupid and slow
That’s not MY fault, is it?
Uh oh, oh no, here we go!

Gameboy solo

And when the snow melts
Snowball season ends
And I got no snow
And I got no friends

So I start counting down the days
And try to get as many new friends as I can
‘Cause I know it’s only a matter of time until the summer’s end
And when September’s over, well, next comes October
And then I remember it’s almost November
And soon it’ll be snowball season again

And I’ll be

Throwing snowballs all day
Throwing snowballs all through the night
You thought I learned my lesson...
Well, guess what! You weren’t right!
It’s almost time for the next snowball fight
Bring on that beautiful snowball fight!
I’ll kick your butt in a snowball fight!
