MINNESOTA MUSIC BLOG

 

Mark Cullen (TheOriginalMC) attended Friday night’s Pre-Party dinner at Brit’s.

 

Earlier this decade, the Minneapolis Hiawatha Light Rail Line commissioned a music project. The company asked for local songwriters to send tunes about either Minnesota weather or Minnesota “nice”.

Me & Mark reminisce about old times
The winning artists received cash awards and have their tunes played in the Light Rail kiosks.

 

Mark wrote and submitted three tunes: “Minnesota Nice”, “We Call It Home” and “If You Don’t Like The Weather”. Wouldn’t you know that the one he wrote on a lark was selected. Listen for it the next time you’re waiting for a train.

 

IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE WEATHER – Mark Cullen

CHORUS

If you don’t like the weather

Wait a minute, it will change.

If you don’t like the weather

Wait a minute, you’re not strange.

 

It’s a scientific fact

Subzero temps we don’t lack

We’re always waiting on the summer to come.

(Bring it on!)

 

Humidity, mosquitoes

Big as homegrown tomatoes

A potpourri of climatic fun. 

(Woo!)

 

CHORUS

 

Ten thousand frozen lakes

A million more frozen faces

Always waiting for the springtime to come.

(Bring it on!)

 

Slushy mud and salt and sand

Stuck to my rug

Can’t think of anywhere more fun.

(Oow!)

 

CHORUS

 

If you don’t like the weather.

(I don’t like the weather)

If you don’t like the weather.

(I said I don’t like the weather)
