When the dead of winter comes each year
In a little town I hold so dear
Folks decide there is a reason
To take a plunge and make themselves freezin’
With the temp so low and the lake so frozen
I myself would not have chosen
To do something so bold
As to take a dip in the cold
But my friends in V. T.
Are much different than me
They think it’s nice
To cut a hole in the ice
They raise funds and divide into teams
And on the big day everyone screams
As one by one, into the lake they go
The heck with the temp, and the ice, and the snow!
And for their efforts what do they get?
Besides freezing cold and thoroughly wet?
Food for the food bank and cash for good causes
I think they deserve many claps and applauses.
