Banish all the Snow (2015) - to the tune of Go Down, Moses

 

The people came with this demand: Banish all the snow.

O Phil, this cold we cannot stand: Banish all the snow.

We’re tired of being stuck inside: Banish all the snow.

At dawn, resist your urge to hide: Banish all the snow.

 

(Refrain:)

            Stand up, Groundhog!  Stand though the sun shines bright.

            Face your shadow and banish all the snow!

 

A blizzard nears, our dreaded foe: Banish all the snow.

The windchill has reached ten below: Banish all the snow.

We’ve cowered to escape the gale: Banish all the snow.

We fear our patience soon must fail: Banish all the snow.

 

            Stand up, Groundhog!  Stand though the sun shines bright.

            Face your shadow and banish all the snow!

 

This winter’s been too harsh and strong: Banish all the snow.

Add six more weeks?  That’s far too long: Banish all the snow.

Please use your pow’r on this great day: Banish all the snow.

This winter, Phil, now send away: Banish all the snow.

 

            Stand up, Groundhog!  Stand though the sun shines bright.

            Face your shadow and banish all the snow!
