Why Did My Igloo Collapse?

Snow falling down on a January morning
Radios announce the school's closed for today

Me, I'm going sledging on binliners
And me, I'm going sledging on binliners

Frost on the windows like giant snowflakes
There's boots on my feet and socks on my hands

And me, I'm going sledging on binliners
And me, I'm going sledging on binliners

I'm gonna build an igloo and make it the size of the world
By scooping out the middle and adding the snow to the roof
My igloo got so big that by dinner it crumbled
And I, did not know why
So I cried

Why did my igloo collapse?
Why did my igloo collapse?
Why did my igloo collapse?

Quotes:
Dan: This is about one really heavy winter when the school was closed for a week. Every morning we'd listen to the radio hoping it was still closed. At eight every morning, with a full day of sledging ahead, I was straight out to Ashok Patel's newsagent to buy my binliners, with my black wellibobs on and socks on my hands because I couldn't afford gloves. 'Binliners?' you ask. We used to use them to sledge down the hill round the back of Beck Hill social club, which had a big stream at the bottom that always threatened death. The next winter, 1986, the bastard farmer ploughed huge furrows into the slope and it was ruined forever.
