Playing in the Cold

Ah, to be the age to romp with dogs
It’s cold outside, but you already know
I wonder how the dog will be since she’ll
Move out and go away for good this fall

It’s cold outside, but you already know
You knew that this was coming – and so I’ll
Move out and go away for good this fall
News travels fast here in this frozen town

You knew that this was coming – and so I’ll
Be honest: there has been somebody else
News travels fast here in this frozen town
I’m sure you’ve known and kept it to yourself

Be honest: there has been somebody else
You’ve played around with all these many years
I’m sure you’ve known and kept it to yourself
Ah, to be the age to romp with dogs
