(To the tune of the "Bear Song,"  or spoken as a rap)

A Polar Bear 
   once gave to me, 
An acronym 
   shaped like a key.

The "C" in COLD 
   stands for "Ceep Clean." 
Don't play with mud 
   or greasy things.

The "O" in COLD 
   stands for "Ovoid," 
Don't Overhear, 
   don't jump for joy!

The "L" in COLD 
   is really three, 
three "W"s 
   that layer me.

   is poly-pro. 
It hates my sweat 
   but loves BO

The Middle "L" 
   is Polar Fleece. 
It keeps me "WARM," 
   me and my fleas.

The outer "L" 
   is "Wet" and "Wind." 
Let's keep them out! 
   Don't let them In!

The "D" in COLD
   stands for keep Dry.
No snow angels, 
   or snowball fights!

Homeo STA,
   SIS SIS my friend, 
I will maintain 
   it till the end!
