So I started off with this small idea to praise Kevin and guess that he wishes the snow had kept coming....and then I ended up going nearly full length (in a TKJ website exclusive ;-) attacking Tony's snow-hating, one-percenter ways. I'll send the shorter one into the show, though its such a mellow tune it seems unlikely...

"You've Got A Friend"

Well the NAM and Euro and GFS all verified
And StormTeam4 was on my TV all night
Closed my eyes and woke up to two feet plus out there
Gotta tip your cap, ‘cause Sheehan, he got it right

Then it stopped, that’s a shame, and you know where ever he was
Kev was begging (aww Kevin) that it start up again
Winter’s when he’ll make the call, no interest in spring summer or fall
Sorry KevinS980, snow had to end, snow had to end

[Short version ends here]

Well the sky above us did turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind sure did bring the snow
Tony fears the weather knows his street won’t be plowed, yeah
Soon he‘ll be knocking on the Mayflower’s door
He sure lives a life of fame, brings red wine wherever he goes
The Palm’s Eric delivers his mail again
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, yeah, he’s living larger than us all
And he'll say so, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, ain't it good to be in the one percent?
Bennies in your billfold
Fans won’t hurt you or desert you.
But, they'll shovel your walk if you let them
Oh yeah, he sure let them.

People call out your name
Browse about won’t feel the same….fade
