Winter in Canada poem

It's winter in Canada
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At thirty-five below.

Oh, how I love Canada
When the snow's up to your butt
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut.


Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave Canada
Cuz I'm frozen to the ground!

You could change 'Canada' into 'Minnesota' and not lose any of the savor of the poem. I am so glad I don't live in Minnesota any more. :)
