Winter comes fast to this side of town
Less sun up above short days come around
Gray and black clouds form in the sky
and yellowing leaves tumble down from up high
and land in muddy puddles full of dirt.

A lonely playground sits in the wet
Cold old abandoned houses, people will never forget
Smoke drifts along from fireplaces in warm homes
People start wearing warmer clothes.
Some catch colds and many get sick
Sunscreen get tossed away in the bin
Wind rises outside, I’ll stay in.
Rugby games are cancelled as it's too soggy 
Rain falls across the fields, foggy.

Winter comes fast to this side of town 
less sun up above, short days come around
Then finally it's winter, staying home all comfy, 
feeling the swarm of heat from the fire.
