SEWED UP IN MY VINTER UNDERVEAR
(Doug Setterberg & Gay Jones)
As recorded by Stan Boreson with Gay Jones, Linden (129 B), 1950.

1. Winter snow is white and glist'ning,
But I'm turning and I'm twisting.
I got to scratch a little here; I got to scratch a little there,
'Cause I'm sewed up in my winter underwear.

2. I put my bathing suit away in mothballs,
And now I got to duck the snowballs,
Then I roll 'em before I fell through the trapdoor.
Now I'm sewed up in my winter underwear.

3. For rain and snow and ice I do not worry.
When winter comes, I do not give a hoot.
My coat and hat and earmuffs keep me cozy,
And I wear two pair of trousers with my suit.

4. But when it comes to other clothing,
The thing that I am loathing
Is when my face turns blue and contortions I go through
'Cause I'm sewed up in my winter underwear.

5. Now it's bound to last till springtime.
When I walk, I walk in swing time.
When I can't scratch my back I throw myself [off-track(?)]
When I'm sewed up in my winter underwear.

6. Outside the snow is snowing.
The fireplace is glowing.
A flat tire needs a patch and an itch needs a scratch,
And I'm sewed up in my winter underwear.

[Repeat 3 & 4]
