It went and gone and did it


They said it would and it did

The snow came down to make us skid

Across the roads and down the lanes

It stopped the traffic and the trains


It stopped the airports and the stations

An inch of snow has stopped the nation

That’s all it takes to make us stop

No work today no way to shop


The powers that be had one whole day

To keep the white stuff at bay

To grit the roads and grit the rails

But all we hear are sad sad tales


Of people trapped in deep snow drifts

And cars trapped in deep snow rifts

Of black ice here and black ice there

To catch the traveller if they dare


To venture out into the weather

And not fall down, we cling together

And fight our way through wind and flakes

And try not to make mistakes


That sends us tumbling to the ground

Or motors that spin round and round

To try to get to where we’re going
Through all the white stuff that is blowing


It happens every year you see

That bit of weather fit for skies

They know it’s coming but do nothing

And just because it’s bloody snowing
