Lyrics

La la la la la la, la la la la la la la

A winter's day, a bitter snowflake on my face
My summer girl takes little backward steps away
Jack Frost took her hand and left me, Jack Frost ain't so cool

CHORUS
  Sell me a coat with buttons of silver
  Sell me a coat that's red or gold
  Sell me a coat with little patch pockets
  Sell me a coat 'cause I feel cold

And when she smiles, the ice forgets to melt away
Not like before, her smile was warming yesterday
See the trees like silver candy, feel my icy hand

CHORUS

See my eyes, my window pane
See my tears like gentle rain
That's the memory of a summer day

CHORUS (twice)

La la la la la la (repeat)
