There are really only two ways to celebrate Groundhog Day.

  1. Road trip to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania and a lot standing around in the cold sipping peppermint schnapps waiting to see the worlds most famous rodent, Phil.
  2. DVD player with a replay button …

I would love to blend way one and way two (by staying at home by the warmth of a fire drinking schnapps and watching Phil on the small screen) but, since my lobby to count Groundhog Day as a national holiday has gone unfulfilled, I’ll celebrate with a most fitting lyrical post.

Okay, campers; rise and shine! It’s Groundhog Day!

They say we’re young and we don’t know
We won’t find out until we’re grown
Well I don’t know if all that’s true
‘Cause you got me, and baby I got you

I got you babe
I got you babe

They say our love won’t pay the rent
Before it’s earned,
Our money’s all been spent
I guess that’s so, we don’t have a pot
But at least I’m sure
Of all the things we got

I got you babe
I got you babe

I got flowers in the spring
I got you to wear my ring
And when I’m sad, you’re a clown
And if I get scared, you’re always around

Don’t let them say your hair’s too long
‘Cause I don’t care,
With you I can’t go wrong
Then put your little hand in mine
There ain’t no hill or mountain
We can’t climb

I got you babe
I got you babe

I got you to hold my hand
I got you to understand
I got you to walk with me
I got you to talk with me
I got you to kiss goodnight
I got you to hold me tight
I got you, I won’t let go
I got you to love me so
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
