Gravity Built The Snowman

Winter lasts a long time here at 8369'. Even my friend here has had enough by now. I guess I should have put him on skis so he could embrace the season. He better remember that summer will eventually come and he will succumb to the heat and fill the lakes with his brothers and sisters and water the lawns of the people down below. So, think of him when you're playing golf in July and remember that he gave his all to keep the fairways green!

It all starts with that drop of water...

Think About Your Troubles
- Harry Nilsson

Sit beside the breakfast table
Think about your troubles
Pour yourself a cup of tea
And think about the bubbles

You can take your teardrops
And drop them in a teacup
Take them down to the riverside
And throw them over the side
To be swept up by a current
And taken to the ocean
To be eaten by some fishes
Who were eaten by some fishes
And swallowed by a whale
Who grew so old
He decomposed

He died and left his body
To the bottom of the ocean
Now everybody knows
That when a body decomposes
The basic elements
Are given back to the ocean

And the sea does what it oughta
And soon there's salty water
(That's not too good for drinking)
'Cause it tastes just like a teardrop
(So they run it through a filter)
And it comes out from a faucet
(And is poured into a teapot)
Which is just about to bubble
Now think about your troubles
