I never learned how to spin plates on sticks
But i have a coat that makes me look just like a bird
Just like a bird
Whenever I go running in it people they smile
Especially when I throw bird feet into the air
Into the air
But on the surface I look warm
But on the surface I look warm
But underneath that is wool and water
And underneath the water and wool I am cold
Cold
Cold
I have a friend who looks like a bear
Whenever he throws his big hands into the air
People tend to leave
And people tend to cry
He lives in a cave right down the street
And this time of year you'd think he'd be asleep
But he's not
He's admiring his porcelein spoon collection
His porcelein spoon collection
But on the surface he looks cold
But on the surface he looks cold
But underneath that is cotton and candy
And underneath the candy and cotton he is cold
Cold
Cold
I never learned how to spin plates on sticks
And I never learned how to spin plates on sticks
And I never learned
But oh we are friends
Together we have partners
I'll make him laugh and he keeps me safe
Well I'll make him laugh and he keeps me clean
Clean
Clean

    Lyric CorrectionThe "bear" part is slightly off. I believe the lyrics are:

    And underneath the candy and cotton he is gold
    Gold
    Gold
