I’m old and I’m cold
Brrr, I’m freezing
This is not at all pleasing
Shouldn’t it be warm in Orange City?
But when I leave my nest so cozy
In the hall a north wind makes me zoom
And I shiver through meals in the dining room
Is the activities room always so chilly?
Isn’t frigid air in a lobby lounge silly?
When the temperature averages 95 outside
Why is it only 73 inside?
We may as well be told…
Ask why a doctor’s office is so cold
For the answer is quite the same:
Preventing illness is the name of the game
Germs and infections spread in the heat
We vulnerable ones can best defeat
Our germy predicament
In a cool environment
Sorry, bugs, about your weather
We’re putting on an extra sweater.
