Would you build me an igloo to protect me from the cold
Kiss me under the “Home Sweet Home,” love me when I’m old
Wrap your arms around me, whisper something bold
Would you build me an igloo to protect me from the cold

Would you pour me a swimming pool if it suddenly turned hot
We’ll float on the cool, cool water ‘til the sun is just a spot
Then walk me across a field, pick forget-me-nots
Would you pour me a swimming pool if it suddenly turned hot

Dance with me around the moon
Swing from star to star
Would you do anything, anything on a lark

Would you build me a wall of bricks if the wind roared all night long
Lay them down one by one while whistling a sweet song
Tuck me under a blanket and tell me nothing’s wrong
Would you build me a wall of bricks if the wind roared all night long

Dance with me around the moon
Swing from star to star
Would you do anything, anything on a lark

Would you build me an igloo to protect me from the cold
Kiss me under the “Home Sweet Home,” love me when I’m old
Wrap my arms around you, whisper something bold
I will build you an igloo to protect you from the cold

(Whistling)
Walk you across a field, pick forget-me-nots
I would pour you a swimming pool if it suddenly turned hot

Would you build me a red canoe if the river rose too high
Paddle ‘cross the water to the land that’s safe and dry
