There's only one day the whole long year,
that I hope and pray
the sun won't appear.

The second of February, you all know,
the groundhog goes
searching for his shadow.

If he should find it, the story is told,
we'll have six more weeks
of winter's cold.

But if it's cloudy, his shadow's not there.
There'll soon be warm weather
and days will be fair.

So please, Sun, for just this one day,
find a big dark cloud
and stay away!
