When The Cold Wind Blows lyrics

Co, o, o, o, o, old,
Co, o, o, o, o, old,
Co, o, o, o, o, old,
When the wind blows…

Short days, long nights,
Will the snow fall?
Will the frost bite?
When the cold wind blows…

Leaves drop, bare trees,
Wrap up, for the big freeze,
When the cold wind blows…

So get the fireplace burning,
Stay close and stop those teeth from chattering,
And once your fingertips start to come alive…
You’re straight back to the…

Co, o, o, o, o, old,
Co, o, o, o, o, old,
Co, o, o, o, o, old,
When the wind blows…

Hedgehogs, Dormouse,
Hibernate, (and) keep the chill out,
When the cold wind blows…

Birds fly, to winter sun,
They’ll come back again, when the spring comes,
When the cold wind slows…

So get the fireplace burning,
Stay close and stop those teeth from chattering,
And once your fingertips start to come alive…
You’re straight back to the…

Co, o, o, o, o, old,
Co, o, o, o, o, old,
Co, o, o, o, o, old,
When the cold wind…

Blo, o, o, o, o, ows,
Blo, o, o, o, o, ows,
Blo, o, o, o, o, ows,
When the wind blows.
