The Lyrics

Our production of Gilbert & Sullivan's 'Patience' was in rehearsal, winter of 2015. Over a period of about a month and a half, it went from being one of the least, to THE snowiest winter on record- getting dumped with a total of about 110 inches, all told, by the time the season ended. Meanwhile- we had a show to (attempt to) prepare for!
So go and tell this weather with our compliments satirical
(Sing Hey to snow, Good-day to snow– and that’s what we shall say!)
"You've gone a tad bit overboard, we soon shall need a miracle"
(Sing Bah to snow, Ha ha! to snow– and that’s what we shall say!)
"We have a big production that we're needing to get ready for
Rehearsals, workdays, Put-In, Monster Sunday, TechWeek- all in store;
There'll BE no play if you keep forcing closures on us any more!"

Sing Hey to snow, Good-day to snow;
Sing Bah to snow, Ha ha! to snow;
Sing Boo to snow, Pooh pooh to snow
– And that’s what we shall say!

I tell you that unless it will consent to be cooperative
(Sing Boo to snow, Pooh pooh to snow– and that’s what we do say!)
to quit with the Nor'easters and permit us to be operative
(Sing Bah to snow, Ha ha! to snow– and that’s what we do say!)
To cease blockading traffic here with snowbanks rising steadily
To be somewhat more temperate, with breezes blowing headily
This weather can clear off someplace that *won't* freeze o'er so readily!

Sing Hey to snow, Good-day to snow;
Sing Bah to snow, Ha ha! to snow;
Sing Boo to snow, Pooh pooh to snow
– And that’s what we shall say!

Bah! (Boo!) Bah! (Boo!) – And that’s what we shall say!
(Bah!) Boo! (Bah!) Boo! – And that’s what we --- shall say!
