Snowbound Nova Scotians

I wrote this little diddy after seeing snow pictures my sister posted on Facebook

Sung to the tune “Farewell to Nova Scotia”

***********
Chorus:
Farewell to Sno-va Scotia, the snow bound land
may your cars be parked and ticket free.
For when I am far away on the Cancun coast,
Will you ever heave a finger or a curse to me?
************

My son was buried in snow to his chest,
and homeowners were cursing on every street.
Mother nature seems gone out west
So still there was no rest for me.
***********
Chorus
***********
I think to grab my shovel in hand,
I wonder how much I can endure.
And my aging bones that creak and groan,
That plow driver can kiss my ass for sure.
***********
Chorus
***********
I have the family and they’re the best,
but their arms are folded in protest.
So a poor landlubber such as me,
Will have to endure the snow neck deep.
***********
Chorus
***********
The tractor drives by and the shouting begins,
The boss he calls, I must come in.
So shovel as I go down the street,
For its only Wednesday morning as I think of spring.
***********
Chorus.
***********
