Warmer Days
Lyrics: John Popper
Music: John Popper

When people think of holidays
They think of cold weather
"Let's spend this frozen wonderland together"

Not me, I'm into warmer days
Don't wanna hear bout your winter wonderland
I am into
I'm into warmer days

Well, frozen fingers, frozen toes
Topped with a frozen stare
Numb your heart, and you numb your mind
Pretend that you don't care

Not me, I'm into warmer days
Don't wanna hear bout your winter wonderland
I am into
I'm into warmer days

Well say what you want about Santa Claus
Go on ahead, do your thing
And solace yourself in your righteous cause
While you're holding out for spring

Not me, I'm into warmer days
Don't wanna hear bout your winter wonderland
I am into
I'm into warmer days

When you were young, you walked to school
Uphill both ways in freezing rain

And when I'm frozen in solid ice
How dare I even complain

Not me, I'm into warmer days
Don't wanna hear bout your winter wonderland
I am into
I'm into warmer days

Don't wanna hear bout your winter wonderland
I am into
I'm into warmer days

winter wonderland
The title of a Christmas carol, whose first line reads:
Sleigh bells ring, are you listening
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight
We're happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland.
When you were young, you walked to school/Uphill both ways in freezing rain
A play on the typical "old-timer" retelling of stories, with the tendency toward exaggeration. One of the funnier lampoons of this type can be found in Monty Python's "We were poor" sketch from Live at the Hollywood Bowl among others.
