Mind the month that starts with "No!"
Never does its ember glow
But leaves us freezing in the snow.
Weather strip your leaky doors
Lay away your wood in cords
Batten up your cracks with boards.
Go and fetch your woolen duds
Change your tires all to studs
Fill your cellar full of spuds.
Ere the snow starts getting thick
Find your plow and mount it quick
Soon the slush will turn to brick.
Chapping lips are gonna crack
Dang old eczema is back
Flu is oinking to attack.
Equinox has fallen wrong
Now the nights are much too long
Daylight Saving Time is gone.
Chipper up November friends
Through the cold this season sends
Comes Thanksgiving once again!
