Oh Mother Nature, hear our cry!
And send some snow down from the sky!
We heard it rain all through the night
But what we want is cold and white.
What IS snow? We scarce remember.
There's been little since December.
We’ve made no snowmen, used no sled.
Why bother to get out of bed?
Oh Mother Nature, grant our plea!
Bring us some snow so we can ski!
Oh Mother Nature, what ill-luck!
This weather would upset a duck!
It’s winter now for goodness’ sake!
We beg you to give us a break!
Today is windy, wet and warm.
They’re calling for a thunderstorm!
The ski resorts all closed early.
In fog and mist it’s hard to see.
Oh Mother Nature, make it right!
Please send us no more rain tonight.
Oh Mother Nature, thank you so!
For giving us this lovely snow!
The hills are now all draped in white
And glisten in the morning light.
The children’s faces fill with glee
Because from school they all are free.
From now at least through March’s end
Let only snow - not rain - descend.
Oh Mother Nature, hail to thee!
You brought us snow so we can ski.
