Written by Greg McIntosh


Programmed to feel love bloom in the Spring
When the buds bring sneezing
And all the folks will shed their coats
And commence romancing
But a Northern boy am I
And to my chagrin, I love to see the ladies
With all their goods behind fake fur hoods
And keen on romancing

All that winter snow
Climbs over edge of boot
Comes home in woolen sock
Then sits by heat vent
While you watch all the
Scenes from the movies
That you wish you could have invented
In a split second and applied to all the situations
That you could have been in
Had you actually ignored your shyness

I'm ashamed to be from a Northern town
Without representatives of overcoats
Holding other folk
Who are romancing
So take your hand
From the pocket where you keep your tissues
And place it on my open glove
'cause we're romancing
