When I was a little boy
My mom layed out my corduroys
Under that my legs were bare
I cursed and scorned the frozen air


Then I was a teenager
And I went to the retailer
Bought some baggy skater slacks
I froze until the spring came back

The cuffs dragged on the ground
And when I walked they trailed the slush around
I looked ready for a fishing trip
But if I went I'd die of frost bite to the hip

Long Johns make it better

University came next
I think my roommate said it best:
"There's no such thing as the cold
If you put on twice the clothes"

I looked her right in the eye
I said "where have you been my whole life?
I could have used you back in grade four
When I peed my pants just to feel more warm"

Long Johns make it better

So when Toronto is sub zero
I worship a two-legged hero
First name: Long, Last name: Johns
Old man winter bring it on
