Does It Get Cold In Winter?by Phil UnderwoodWhile cruising on the old canalYou're often in a hurrySo when you see gongoozlers,Your head begins to worryIt takes good time that long for youTo reach your journey's endFor when you stop the questions start,It drives you round the bendChorus:Does it get cold in winter in winter?Gongoozleers always cryDoes it get cold in winter in winter?It's makes you want to sighThey're always asking questionsIt's enough to make you to spitDoes it get cold in winter?Of course it does, you twit!(On account of it being winter, see)Is it called a long boat?They always ask that questionYou've answered it a million timesIt's given you indigestionNo, it's not a bleeding long boat'Cos we're not Vikings, seeThe only Danish round here is the one we had with teaChorusWhile winding up the old lock gateMe windlass slipped and spunIt wacked me on my handI fell down on my bumI was rolling round in agonyWhen I heard a mighty chuckleAnd a goozler cheerfuly enquiredHave you broke your knuckle?ChorusSo when you see gongoozlersWhile cruising on the cutAnd they start asking questionsDon't even pish or tutJust start up your jet engine(Available at all good marine chandlers)And put it on full powerAnd treat them to a narrowboat going at 60 miles per hourChorusDoes it get cold in winter in winter?Does it get cold in winter in winter?Of course it does, you twit!
