lyrics

Close the door

And so we’re here
Coming in from the cold
Nice and warm but it’s
Creeping up on you
Fluffy towels and kittens and
Fluffy clouds in my brain
An early start, every day
Not knowing what to do

Close the door, we’ve got to close the door
Close the door and turn it down

Our hairy little friends left us
What a way to be thankful
I hear the wheels
And tons of steel passing by
We came all this way
but it took only minutes
To find me shouting in the cold
I don’t wanna see them die

Close the door, we’ve got to close the door
Close the door and turn it down
We’ve got to turn it down, turn it down

And now we’re here
The table top is shining
And B. is an angel
Always good for a laugh
Don’t want to know what could’ve happened
If the dice hadn’t been that lucky
Good to know they roll
On our behalf

Close the door, we’ve got to close the door
Close the door and turn it down
We’ve got to turn it down, turn it down
