it's a marshmallow world

last night some time after seven the snow started sticking to the ground... this morning everything was covered. this is the first real snow of the season and so we must celebrate with hot chocolate and a version of It's A Marshmallow World by Los Straitjackets. when i was 15 or so my younger sister sang It's A Marshmallow World in her girls' chorus class. it's a pretty goofy song but i can't help but sing it when is snows and it looks like marshmallows.

it's a marshmallow world in the winter,
when the snow comes to cover the ground.
it's the time for play, it's a whipped cream day,
i wait for it the whole year round!

those are marshmallow clouds being friendly,
in the arms of the evergreen trees;
and the sun is red like a pumpkin head,
it's shining so your nose won't freeze!

the world is your snowball, see how it grows,
that's how it goes, whenever it snows.
the world is your snowball just for a song,
get out and roll it along!

it's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts,
take a walk with your favorite girl*
it's a sugar date, so what if spring is late,
in winter it's a marshmallow world!

*the girls chorus said 'guy' so that's how i remember it

snow, snow, snow, snow!
I wanna wash my hands, my face and hair in snow!
(my holiday music nod to your last post)

I just hope you are toppled. From your high horses.

Think about it.

but i was wrong. no snow. just cold, Indiana winds and rain.
