Big North Wind (Buddy Wasisname) tabs

Click Here for tabs.

Trapped in my kitchen while a storm blows,
Outside there is nothing but blowing snow;
Nothing to do and no where to go,
Time is just to be lazy.
It's a gift from the maker of the cold north wind,
Slipping a hint from a good old friend;
Time to relax and take a break,
From troubles, trials, and labour.

Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin,
You're the big north wind and you can't come in;
You'll huff and puff and blow cold snow,
But I'm okay by the old wood stove.

It's running down my windows in patterns bold,
Coming from the wind blowing 'cross the cove;
The world disappears in a cloud of snow,
And I just sit here watching.
With a hum and a whistle and a moan and a groan,
It scratches at my windows and pounds my home;
Shoots up my roof and over my peak,
Peeps right down my chimney.

Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin,
You're the big north wind and you can't come in;
You'll huff and puff and blow cold snow,
But I'm okay by the old wood stove.

I can hear loud breathing of the big yellow plough,
Snow drifts building, filling up the town;
Schools is closed, the post office shut,
No one can get to the shop.
Think I'll unplug the telephone, the old TV,
And no one in the world can pester me;
Going to stay at home and take a break,
From keeping the wolf from the door.

Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin,
You're the big north wind and you can't come in;
You'll huff and puff and blow cold snow,
But I'm okay by the old wood stove.
