The Lyrics

There's No Business Like Snow Business,
Like No Business, I know

All that fluffy white stuff they're inviting,
And there always hoping winds will blow
When it's two feet high, they are delighting,
It's so exciting, they're countin' dough...

They're "Now" people, those plow people,
It's how people go swank...

If you ask 'em they don't see white snow at all
Just money green for each service call,
'Makin' them as wealthy as that Old J. Paul,
They rank..high at the bank!

The doctors, the lawyers, mob bosses, the vets,
Will very often envy them because,
The doctors, the lawyers, mob bosses, the vets,
Must be careful not to break tax laws...
Six figure incomes are not all that rare,
They're tax exempt, because they don't declare!..
So there!....There...

There's No Business Like Snow Business,
Like no business, it's clear..

They're out there with those giant four-wheel go-ers,
Shovel and snow blower in the rear,
These same guys in summer are grass mowers,
And then leaf blowers, when fall is here...

There's No Business Like Snow Business,
Like no business, I know...

They might get a phone call, drinkin' in a bar,
The truck's not running, they'll use a car,
Plow your parked Ford under, yellin' from afar...
Let's go...On with the snow!
Let's go...On with the snow!

Reminds me of my youth in the Northeast. How a sequel about the heroin trade?

There's no job like a snow job. You keep paying people money for what they don't do.

Two feet high, must be set in Colombia then... I'd show this to my dad, but his English is not that good, and he's probably out on with the snowplowmobile now anyway... (no, not in Colombia). :-)

Airfarcewon: Six months ago I got an idea of my own out of this parody, though it got lost when I had to fight my way to work in a local snow stort, now it's done though, expect it later this weekend.
