I was so busy packing
When the first flakes fell
I saw the swirling flurries
But I told them, go to hell

Today's my moving day
I will do it, yeah man!
A little snow won't stop me
I have a perfect plan

But the snow kept falling
And the temperatures too
Oh, you won't distract me
'Cause I've got things to do

Up and down the stairs I ran
Laundry, bathroom, kitchen sink
Where's my charger
Where's my hat
Oh, I don't have time to think

And all the while
The snowflakes were dropping
And the temperatures too
Hmmm
Hmmmmmm

Now, I'm ready to pack the car
But where the heck is it
Hidden by a foot of snow
In a frickin' frigid blizzard

The snow kept falling
And the temperatures too

I sat down and I cried
The snow kept falling
My tears did too

I put my head in my hands
And wondered what to do

My mind was numb, my plans were too
I asked the cat, what should we do

She looked at me,
Said, can't you see
There's nothing to be done
What we need to do is nothing
Just kick back and have some fun

The snow kept falling
And the temperatures too

I mulled a million methods for moving
There's got to be a way
But finally, I gave up 
I agreed

Moving? 
Nope
Not today

The snow kept dropping
And the temperatures too

I sat and looked out the window
Now that I had nowhere else to go

Suddenly, I realized 
I was in a picture-book winter wonderland
in a flash
every inch of the scene
had been decorated as if planned
 
carefully dusted 
fairy-fully frosted
With generous heaps of snow
I saw it clearly
All around me
Now that I had nowhere else to go

The snow kept falling
And the temperatures too

I decided to do nothing
That was something I could do

I had
A bowl of soup
And a bubble bath
I was in a warm and cozy home

I had
A book to read
And a book to write
And a kitty cat sitting by my side

The snow stopped
The temperature dropped
I stopped

When things fall apart
And your heart is broken
And you're feeling sad and blue
Sometimes
Doing nothing
Is the only thing to do
