Winter time is freezing time,
Teasing time and squeezing time.
That’s the time to love
When your lady love you go,
Skimming o’er the ice and snow,
Silver moon above.
Hear the sleigh bells ring!
Hear them ding-a-ling!
When the snow is softly falling,
That’s the time to squeeze, when it starts to freeze.
In October and November and December, just remember
When your sweetheart comes acalling,
By the fireside so bright you’ll sit and tease her,
That’s the time to squeeze her, when it’s winter.
Don’t be bashful, it’s no use;
Winter time’s a good excuse.
When you want to spoon
Cuddle close and hold her tight,
Make her think it’s June tonight,
Talk of honey moon.
Wedding bells will ring
Sometime in the Spring.
