Because I was told people couldn't hear some lyrics due to it being funny and thus having the audience laugh, here are the words to the song parody I wrote for the February 7, 2004 Inside Improv.

"The Weather, It's Wetter"
(new lyrics by Kit FitzSimons, performed as Meteorologist Shaquille Heera)

(To the tune of Shakira's "Whenever, Wherever")

Lucky you decided to tune in 'cause
There's a storm on the horizon.
Lucky that I listen to the anchors
So that I would know when I was on.
Up in the Northeast, there's clouds aflowing
They're cumulus just like soft bedding.
And I know which way the wind is blowing
There's no question where it's heading.

Le lo le le lo le ...Lay low: today it's frozen rain.
I repeat:
We're in for slee-eet!

The weather, it's wetter
Hey, baby, better wear a sweater.
Don't you know it's like God's tears
Down from the atmosphere.
The lightning, and thunder:
Meteorologists have blundered.
They said, "Balmy, sunny skies"
But don't believe those lies.

This will make the third snowfall this winter,
For those people who are countin'
Here's the latest from our weather center
"In the Appalachians, there are mountains."
And now, if this storm has got you worried
About disasters past supposing,
Turn on this station bright and early
For a complete list of school closings.

Low low low low low low, low low low low low pressure zone
Now at last...
Extended forecast!

Saturday, and Sunday
Are partly cloudy, then on Monday
Scattered showers sweep the state...
(Doesn't my tie look great?)
Through Thursd-y, or Friday
There'll be lows in the thirties, I'd say.
We'll just have to play by ear.
And that's the week 'round here.

< drop to hands and knees and crawl >

Le lo le le lo le, Le lo le le lo le lo le
When it melts
Play in the mu-ud!
Le do le le lo le lo le
Let me show you my-y
Earned at DeVries!

<pull off sweater to reveal wifebeater>

The weather, it's wetter.
Hey, baby, better wear a sweater.
Don't you know it's like God's tears
Down from the atmosphere.
The lightning, and thunder:
Don't get too wo-orried, my dears.
This storm is no big deal;
Twenty inches is the max, I feel.

The weather, it's wetter.
Hey, baby, better wear a sweater.
Don't you know it's like God's tears
Down from the atmosphere.
The lightning, and thunder:
Better put chai-ains on your wheels!
There's nothing left to hear
Thank you for listening toooo myyy schpiel!

PS: While chatting online, the question of why the hell I was posting these was posed. My answer was: "Why the hell not? This is what Area 27514's all about. And besides, I forgot to put it in my journal."
