I wish I could leave
But I feel stuck in place
With this same expression
Always frozen to my face

I'm not all that happy
Think maybe I'm just cold
The scarf is nice but not much help
When it's twelve below

I don't mind the sun
It's better than the rain
Maybe with a little luck
I'll just melt away

I don't mind this button
But pretend my eyes are blue
Who thought it a good idea
To give a statue a broom

I'm off to the village
And there's that silly cop
Like me, does he ever wish
This carousel would stop
