I Was a Fool (For Snow)

In response to Vee’s recent blog post, So Much Snow, I ended up writing a parody of the song, I Was a Fool by Tegan and Sara. I encourage you to grab a hot beverage and stay awhile ☕💕 If you enjoyed this parody, feel free to check out my other poetry musings here. Also, I highly encourage you to check out Vee’s blog #MILLENIALLIFECRISIS if you haven’t already done so. Her blog is as real as it gets! Thanks for reading! ✨

[Verse 1]
Do you remember you searched me out?
How you climbed my city’s walls?
Do you remember it’s October?
Winter now echoes my calls

[Pre-Hook]
Now I’m chilled to the bone
Froze to death is all I did

[Hook]
You stuck around
You didn’t leave
You’d taunt me every time
I was a fool for snow
I was a fool for snow
I was a fool
I was a fool

[Verse 2]
You keep showing up in my world
When will you leave me alone?
Then you decide to linger near me
You refuse to go away

[Pre-Hook]
Now (now) I’m (I’m) chilled to the bone
(chilled to the bone)
Froze (froze) to (to) death is all I did
(is all I did)

[Hook]
You still stuck around
You didn’t leave
You’d taunt me every time
I was a fool for snow
I was a fool for snow
I was a fool (I was a fool for snow)
I was a fool (I was a fool for snow)
I was a fool (I was a fool for snow)

[Bridge]
I never liked you so please go away
It’s too early for these winter days
You best be looking for another place
Without me in that space, within that space

[Pre-Hook]
Now (now) I’m (I’m) chilled to the bone
(chilled to the bone)
Froze (froze) to (to) death is all I did
(is all I did)

[Hook]
You still stuck around
You didn’t leave
You’d taunt me every time
I was a fool for snow (I was a fool)
I was a fool for snow
I was a fool (I was a fool for snow)
I was a fool (I was a fool for snow)
I was a fool (I was a fool for snow)

    Haha, I love it when the bloggers I follow reference each other :). It’s great. Unfortunately for me I don’t know this particular song so the humor is lost on me. However, I have every faith that you’re a talented parody-ist.

      See link to song – it will lead to the official YouTube video. I didn’t grow up on their music but I’ve heard this song a handful of times on the radio. It’s catchy in the sense that I remembered the song several years later.

    I’m actually really glad that you explained it because the reference was really lost on me when you commented. I was like… ‘I should ask, but I also don’t want to look like an idiot, so…’. I got too scared to acknowledge I didn’t get the reference.

      I should have referenced it in the comments. Yes, it wasn’t very clear. Hopefully this clears up any confusion! Highly recommend listening to the original (see link) before reading the parody 🙂

    I forgot it’s already snowing in Alberta. I think we’re getting our first snow is Southern Ontario today and I can tell by how the weather has gotten. Really enjoyed your parody and it’s usually how I end up feeling after the first few weeks of winter.

    My mom made a gift for baby-to-be. I wanted to text you and tell you I had something for you but I realized that I no longer have your number. I got a new phone for work several weeks back and I never actually tansferred over my numbers.

    Obviously with everything going on in this city right now, I definitely don’t want excess interaction. That being said, if things do calm down in the next few months here, perhaps we can meet some time for a distant walk in the park or a distant meeting somehow so that I can give it to you.

      Thank you so much, Vee! 😇 That’s so generous of you and your mom to do something nice for me. I really appreciate it and totally agree that we should probably wait until the pandemic has settled down. It’s concerning how bad it’s gotten in Calgary. 😷 I heard that they finally created a vaccine so there’s a glimmer of hope that things may be better by the spring.

      My number is 226-979-8939. Are you still using your other phone numbers or should I delete them? It makes sense that I haven’t been able to reach you through your other numbers (BC number and Calgary number).
