(Tune) the ice hotel

Breakfast on the Morning Tram


Let's you and me go away to The Ice Hotel  The Carribean's all booked out  And that's just as well  Once I'd have been much keener  On Barbados or Antigua  But just now I think the arctic will suit us well  Let's you and me go away to The Ice Hotel  

They've built it all with ice that's pure and clear  The sofas, the lobby  Even the chandelier A thermostat guarantees A steady minus five degreesWhat other place could serve our needs so well  Let's you and me go away to the Ice Hotel  Romantic places  Like Verona or Paris  They'll always lead you astray  You'd have to be a novice  To ever trust Venice  And those dreamy waterways  And what the tropics can do  I know only too wellSo, let's you and me go away to the Ice Hotel  Heavy clothing at all times  Is the expected norm  Even candlelight at dinner

Is considered too dangerously warm  And when the time comes for us to sleep  We'll spread out our reindeer fleece  And curl up together  On an ice block carved for twoBut then in the morning  Provided we've made it through …We'll step out together  To watch the sun rise over  That vast expanse of cold  And who knows if we're lucky  We may find ourselves talking  Of what future may hold  This is no whim of the momentI want you to realize  Let's go away to that palace made of ice  

Let's you and me go away to the ice hotel  The Bahamas are all booked out  And that's just as well  I don't think we're quite ready  For Hawaii of Tahiti  And we will be  Only time will tell  Let's you and me go away to The Ice Hotel ;-)
