Christmas 2029

 

Tell us again Grandpa!
Tell us about the sunny days!
Is it true?
Were you there?

Long hot sunny days
Summer temperatures in the 40s
Mild fresh winters
Golf everyday
Lying on the beach
Getting a tan

What’s a tan Grandpa?
But the beach is dangerous?
What’s a bikini?
Did they really swim in the holes in the ground?
When did it start Grandpa?

It was long ago
I was still young
The Friday before Christmas it was
The rain started to pour
And pour
And pour
And never ever stopped
Not for more than a day

But far away in the old country
It was by far worse
The snow fell
And fell
And fell
And never stopped
Not for more than a day

They had warned us the climate would change
They had said we all might die
And thousands did
Washed a way
Frozen solid
But the world did not melt
The world just got wetter
And colder
And the seas froze

Tell us again Grandpa!
Tell us about the summer!
Tell us about when Spain was sunny!
