Weather Song

(Tune: Danny Boy – an Irish Air)
Oh Davy boy, the pipes, the pipes are frozen,
pipesThe temperature is nearly minus eight.
The Eastern Beast is roaring at our windows,
Put on your coat, throw more wood on the grate.
We said we’d go to work at IBTSC
In Amsterdam – with weather just like home.
Did BMS say Holland or Siberia?
Ah well, the summer will come soon, we mustn’t moan!

Oh Dotty girl, the pipes, the pipes are baking,heat-wave
It’s 35 degrees, ain’t that a treat?
The grass is brown and all our plants are dying,
We Irish were not built to stand such heat!
We said we’d go to work at IBTSC
In Amsterdam – with weather just like home.
Did BMS say Netherlands or Africa?
Ah well, the winter will come soon, we mustn’t moan!

Dear Dave and Dot (the email says from BMS),
We’re sorry you’re too cold/hot (please delete). images
The Dutch saying ‘There’s no such thing as bad weather,
Only bad clothing’ – works for cold and heat!
You said you’d go to work at IBTSC
In Amsterdam – with weather just like home.
Please understand we don’t control the weather,
Take heart – autumn is coming soon, so please don’t moan!
