A Warm Day In December
A warm day in Summer over thirty degrees
And I long for the coolness of a cool freshening breeze
And even warm in the shade out of the sunlight
A cold shower will feel nice followed by a few beers tonight.
A warm day in December far too warm for me
For many it will be Christmas by the sea
Towards the coastal towns on the coastal highway
The traffic will be bumper to bumper all day.
A warm day in December too warm for birds to sing
They've sung their best songs in the cool days of the Spring
Far too warm for one with pale sun sensitive skin
In the weather as in life it is so hard to win.
A warm day in December with Christmas so near
We can expect warm days at this time of the year
The weather forecaster says over thirty degrees
And 'tis even quite warm in the shade of the trees.
