Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
It ain't even cold outside, not where I'm from
Feeling like it's mid-July under the sun
My jacket don't get no love, no hats and no gloves
Not even a chance of rain
But my baby's in town and we're gonna do some winter things

[Chorus]
Hey, yo
I wanna pretend we're at the North Pole
Turning the heat into an ice cold holiday
Made just for me and my baby
My baby's in town and we're gonna do some winter things, hey, hey

[Verse 2]
Take me to the ice-skating rink downtown (No, no, no, downtown)
Even though it's 100 degrees, gotta get out (Ah)
Ain't no ice or no chills (Ain't no ice or no chills), no snowmen to build (No snowmen to build)
Most of our friends at the beach (Most of our friends at the beach)
But my baby's in town and we're gonna do some winter things (But my baby's in town and we're gonna do some winter things), hey, hey

[Chorus]
Hey, yo
I wanna pretend we're at the North Pole
Turning the heat into an ice cold holiday
Made just for me and my baby
My baby's in town and we're gonna do some winter things, hey, hey

[Bridge]
Just imagine that we're laughing
In the cabin, chilling by the fireside
Even though this sun is blasting
We can be wherever if we visualize

[Chorus]
Hey, yo
I wanna pretend we're at the North Pole
Turning the heat into an ice cold holiday
Made just for me and my baby
My baby's in town and we're gonna do some winter things, hey, hey

[Outro]
Ha, ha, ha, la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la
