Januarys Child - Lyrics by Michelle Lewis


Lyrics

(michelle lewis/teddy kumpel)

Dada dada dada dada
Dada dada dada dada
Dada dada dada dada

On the coldest night of the year
You start to rethink hell
Cause all you hear is a cruel wind moan
Fire engine bells
See, this family had no heat
So they built a bonfire in their living room
They thought they could keep it a secret
But those flames caught on and soon the whole building went up
I see one fireman turn to another and say
"that's quite a blaze we got here."
"yup...well, they're warm for now"

And the fires burn on the east side
While the west is hunkering down
And i'm in search of comfort
But he is elusive and working in mid-town

Ohhh

Oh, oh it's negative something degrees
Oh, oh i think the whole world may freeze
Been this low for awhile
January's child
Dada dada dada dada
January's child

It's the coldest night of the year
And i've decided that hell is on 29th street
Yeah, the car's jammed down 10th avenue
Cause the girls all go on sale just to get inside
"hey, honey...you want a ride?"
Well they'll give handjobs for a dollar
They'll go down on you for ten
If your car has heat
Hell is 29th street

And these few degrees are lonely
They cling to me for life
Holding on to a dead mans blanket, a lost dogs fur
And a hookers exposed thighs...

Ohhh..

Oh, it hasn't been sunny for weeks
Oh, the tears freeze on my cheeks
And it's love for awhile
January's child

And when he finds me
On his steps outside
I'm half frozen in ice
So he digs me out
And he drags me in
And he cuts like a surgeon
Through my skin into warm blood
Melts me down and gives me love
When i tell him i want to die
That january boy laughs and says
"okay snow queen, here's a match
Why don't you try..."

Oh, oh it's negative something degrees
Oh, oh i think the whole world may freeze
It'll be all right in awhile
Says january's child
Dada dada dada dada
Says january's child

Ohhh we'll be all right in awhile
Says january's child
It's gonna be all right
It's gonna be it's gonna be all right
It's gonna be it's gonna be all right
All right all right all right
Says january's child
It's be gonna be all right
Gonna be all right
Says january's child
