Madeleine Crouch from the International Society of Bassists sent out this fun song written by fellow board member John Schimek about all the snow that has been bizarrely pummeling Oklahoma. As a Chicago resident, I can’t help but feel a sense of smug satisfaction at seeing states like Texas and Oklahoma get all the weather we usually get up here in Illinois while sitting high and dry under sunny skies and experiencing a relatively snow-free winter!
John Schimek, an ISB board member who lives in Oklahoma
City, is tired of being battered repeatedly by snow and ice storms this
year and has written new lyrics to the old Broadway hit. I’ve always
said, “There’s no business like snow business!”
Where the cold front’s sweepin’ down the plain;
And the piles of sleet beneath your feet
Follow right behind the freezing rain.
Ev’ry night my honey lamb and I
Travel home from work and hope some jerk
Doesn’t wreak our car in passing by.
We know we belong to the land
But it could use some more salt and sand
That’s why we say……WHOA!
We’re sliding the other way……YIKES!
We’re only sayin’ “You’re slick as snot SNOWklahoma.”
