"Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" as written by and Cole Porter....
Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

It doesn't show signs of stopping,
And I brought some corn for popping;
The lights are turned way down low,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

When we finally say good night,
How I'll hate going out in the storm;
But if you really hold me tight,
All the way home I'll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we're still good-bye-ing,
But as long as you love me so.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about living in a post-apocalyptic, post-global-warming future.

    "Oh, the weather outside is frightful"
    The meaning for this line is obvious. Some places used to be so full of snow, and now look at them.

    "But the fire is so delightful"
    Remember setting ants on fire with a magnifying glass when you were a kid? Neither do I, but that's what will happen because of global warming, except, of course, it won't be just ants that are the victim. The whole planet will be in flames. He explains why it's "so delightful" in a few lines.

    "And since we've got no place to go..."
    ...Because the excess water caused by melting polar ice caps has covered most of the land.

    "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow."
    Wishful thinking at its best, but then again he might be delusional because of the extreme heat.

    "It doesn't show signs of stopping"
    He's referring to the heat of course.

    "And I brought some corn for popping"
    He's being sarcastic because he's bitter over what has happened to the planet--'well since everything's in flames, I can at least make some good popcorn!' Also, this line explains why "the fire is so delightful".

    "The lights are turned way down low..."
    ...Only because there is no energy to power them anymore.

    "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow"
    At best, wishful thinking. At worst, bitter sarcasm.

    "When we finally say good night,
    How I'll hate going out in the storm"
    These lines remind me of the commercials for the movie "The Day After Tomorrow". That's what the future will be like.

    "But if you really hold me tight,
    All the way home I'll be warm"
    More sarcasm from a very bitter survivor of the "heat holocaust". Of course he'll be warm. He's being sarcastic--he really just wants to be alone because humanity disgusts him now.

    "The fire is slowly dying"
    Eventually all the flames from the aforementioned magnifying glass effect will cease, as they will be extinguished by the ever-rising water level.

    "And, my dear, we're still good-bye-ing"
    It will be one long, horrible, drawn-out apocalypse. Just like saying good-bye, it won't be fun at all.

    "But as long as you love me so"
    His wife left him for another man.

    "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow."
    By the end of the song, we are left disgusted with his depressing, nihilistic, bitter attitude about things. Let's hope that we can avert global warming so we don't have to listen to people who write such negative songs.
