The Lyrics

What the world needs now are gloves, warm gloves
They're the only thing that that there's still a shortage of
What the world needs now are gloves, warm gloves
No not just for some, but for everyone

Lord, I don't need a pair of snowboots
I've got jackets and hats and scarves to wear
I've got longjohns and earmuffs and nice woolen socks
Facemasks I've got enough to spare


Lord I don't need a pair of swim trunks
'Cause it's quite the wrong season for flip-flops and sand
And if this were Australia, I'd light up the grill
But I just need wool to cover my hands

I'm all done with glove parodies, so I'm giving all 555 of my gloves to you. Hopefully, I can find the sixth one.
