Cold, Wet & Gray in Portland



oh, it's cold, wet and gray in portland
in portland it's cold, wet and gray
sometimes the rain
just goes all day
in portland, where it's cold, wet and gray

it's probably colder in norway
and wetter at the bottom of the sea
as for the gray
what can i say
it's grayer in portland than me
(and that's as gray as you ever will see)

(chorus)
what did you expect, sunshine and flowers
in the winter in the old northwest?
there is no cure, you just have to endure
in portland, where it's cold, wet and gray

the paper says there's showers tomorrow
and then rain will be following that
the eskimos
have lots of words for snow
in portland, it's just cold, wet and gray

the dogs don't want to shit in the backyard
but shit there they sometimes must
their feet get wet
but what the heck
they're in portland where it's cold, wet and gray

(chorus)
what did you expect, sunshine and flowers
in the winter in the old northwest?
there is no cure, you just have to endure
in portland, where it's cold, wet and gray

soggy is a word that i respect now
i can feel it down into my bones
you're not a mensch
until you've been drenched
in portland, where it's cold, wet and gray

i understand we need lots of water
for the crops and the ducks and the fish
when the kids go to camp
they come back damp
in portland, where it's cold, wet and gray

++++
