Well, the boys are goin’ skiin’
It’s that time of year.
So let’s get movin’
Here’s all of your gear.
Got yer goggles, boots, gloves, jacket, and hat.
Bring plenty of water — ya gotta have that.
Now wax your boards and don’t leave your poles.
You’ll need those for balance over jumps and moguls.
We heard the conditions
They say, “It’s just right” for havin’ some fun in the sun Oh-so-bright!
It takes a while to get there, ya say, but leave early enough,
And you’ll have the whole day.
I might see you later to take pictures a-bunch, and check out the lodge ... maybe meet you for lunch.
If not, I won’t feel left behind,
I’ll be doin’ my own thing, but you’re still on my mind.
The boys will be come when the big lift shuts down, and things get real quiet in the little “ski town.”
It’s good to see you!
Did you have tons of fun?
On the hill full of snow,
Did you try every run?
