Lyrics

v.1
Forty years on an iceberg / make #10 four times with hands
Sailing the ocean wide / wave motion
Nothing to wear but pyjamas / slide hands up body from toes to head
Nothing to do but slide / slide hands down body from head to toes
The wind was cold and icy / shiver, arms around body
The frost began to bite / chomping motion with hands
I had to hug a polar bear / hug body
To keep me warm at night night night night

The frost began to bite / chomping motion with hands
I had to hug a polar bear / hug body
To keep me warm at night night night night

Variations

This is a camp version that I wrote that can be changed to suit any camp, just insert the name of your camp or group in the first line:

Forty years at _________ / make #10 four times with hands
Out in the field so wide / gesture widely in front of you
Nothing to wear but camp shirts / tug at your shirt to show it
Nothing to do but crafts / pretend to use scissors
The games were full of running / pretend to run
The songs went late at night / put hands around mouth and pretend to shout
I had three blankets in my bunk / pretend to pull blankets over yourself
To keep me warm at night night night night / hug self and pretend to shiver
