Recorded Sunday, December 5, 2010 by Meg Reichardt at Soapbox Studios, Brooklyn, NY

lyrics

In winter when the snow comes down
And turns the city into the North Pole
It makes me want to shelter somewhere
We can keep each other warm

We could decide to stay in bed all day
Or start a war with snowballs
We could slide down slopes and inclines
In a flying saucer

Let’s build an igloo
We can live like Eskimos
Let’s build an igloo
Run around in snowshoes
Let’s build an igloo
We’ll kiss by rubbing nose to nose
Let’s build an igloo
We’ll stay warm in ice and snow

We’ll pack the snowfall into ice bricks
And we’ll form them into a round dome
We’ll line with furs and sealskins
And we’ll call it home

Let’s build an igloo
We can live like Eskimos
Let’s build an igloo
Run around in snowshoes
Let’s build an igloo
We’ll kiss by rubbing nose to nose
Let’s build an igloo
We’ll stay warm in ice and snow

And the polar bears can come and share
Our cosy little den
And the reindeer they can stay near
If we need some other friends
But we’ll be the only people
As far as the eye can see
Cause our love is snow blind baby
And there’s only you and me

Let’s build an igloo
We can live like Eskimos
Let’s build an igloo
Run around in snowshoes
Let’s build an igloo
We’ll kiss by rubbing nose to nose
Let’s build an igloo
We’ll stay warm in ice and snow

Let’s build an igloo
Faces rosy from the cold
Let’s build an igloo
We can learn to take it slow
Let’s build an igloo
Where we can take off all our clothes
Let’s build an igloo
We’ll stay warm in ice and snow
