Pingo Was Its Name-O














[pingo: (Inuit = 'conical hill') -- a semi-permanent ice-cored soil mound up to 900 feet high in the Canadian Arctic.]

There was a man who had a farm
On top of a dome of permafrost
P-I-N-G-O
And pingo was its name-o.

He had no wood, he had no twigs
Nothing to make a flame-o
P-I-N-G-O
And pingo was its name-o.

In summer he ate lots of bugs
Each meal came out the same-o
P-I-N-G-O
And pingo was its name-o.

The land was cheap, his meat would keep
No neighbors he could blame-o
P-I-N-G-O
and pingo was its name-o.

He had no life, he had no wife
No kids that he could claim-o
P-I-N-G-O
and pingo was its name-o.

He sent a letter to his friends
Which said this place is lame-o
P-I-N-G-O
and pingo was its name-o.

As he got old, he got less bold
ice-out just went and came-o.
P-I-N-G-O
and pingo stayed the same-o.
