Distant chill and early morning
Rising in the cold
The car's all frozen thawing slowly
Where’s my woolly scarf?
The radios drones on with a weather warning
And I’m shivering in the cold
The kettle seems to be taking ages
The toast is taking its time
Where’s the butter and marmalade?
It’ll be cold today, I’m told
Gloved and scarved, scraper in hand
Scraping away at the screen
Start the engine
Heater full blast
Melting away the ice
I’m as cold as an artic breeze
And some snow dripped down my sleeve!
Just got time for a cuppa
So I’ll leave the car warming
What a hell of a time to be getting up
Four o clock in the morning!
