Snow Queen is dancing outside
White-eyed stranger, as lonely as me
Tender and harsh, like a woman can be.

She draws frost patterns on my window
Cold-hearted fairy, she gives me a chance
To forget my pain and to join her dance

Chorus
Snow Queen, Snow Queen,
You know exactly how I feel
I make my way
In silent frozen forest
Of broken love

Tearless beauty, she knows no self-pity
Dare to offend her and feel fever thrill
Laughing like ice chime, she’ll make you chill.

Her eyes were glinting; she told me a story
About man she loved, she met him in June
Dark eyed knight, cold and fickle like moon.

Chorus
Snow Queen, Snow Queen,
You know exactly how I feel
I make my way
In silent frozen forest
Of broken love

She got an ice magic from a wizard
She charmed her lover; he was callous.
She turned him into ice statue in her palace.

Summer doesn’t come to her land
Her dress is snow, her music is storm
And nobody can make her heart warm.

Chorus
Snow Queen, Snow Queen,
You know exactly how I feel
I make my way
In silent frozen forest
Of broken love

How She Became The Snow Queen

Lottery is fun for the poor
What’d you do if you won?
Sure, you dream to be the one.

Yes, everyone’d envy you
But hey, would you care?
You’d think “Life is finally fair”.

People like to live in hope
Billions of tickets are sold
Money fever is old in the world

It is so sad to be poor
You can’t afford a lot, you know
And your most-used word is “no”

So you buy and buy tickets,
Waiting for your luck to come
And dreaming of that enormous sum.

A beggar asks you for money,
But you say “Start to work”
You’re just a bit luckier, don’t be a jerk!

House’s full of tickets; it’s where
You hide you secret lottery plan,
The list of all you’d buy if you won

Save the money you earn,
My friend, and accept the truth,
It is not as easy to win as to loose.

The Lottery Obsession

He was a young man
And his smile was wide.
People said he never lied.

He worked on a farm,
Raised kids with his wife.
Usual peaceful and simple life.

But peace was destroyed,
He left home with a gun.
It happened in June, 1941.

He was under fire,
He saw his friends died.
Power was on the enemy’s side

Bombs fell every day.
Just few soldiers survived.
And there was he, who never lied.

Four years, no rest.
He had reached Berlin –
The only abroad he’d ever seen.

What miracle saved him?
We’ll never know.
He wanted to see his kids to grow

He didn’t tell much
He just sadly sighed.
War stories were his only lie.

He passed away,
He lived a long life,
Last time I saw him he was 95.

Now peace is so frail
We do nothing to save it
I’m sorry, grandfather. You were braver.

She’s so young, but she has everything
Is there something that money can’t bring?
Who is her dad? World famous tycoon!
And if she wants he’ll buy her the Moon

Slaphappy life! She has nothing to gain
Money will save the poor girl from pain
It’s easy to be the one of those snobs
When your daddy’s face smiles in Forbes

Just buy it all! It’s no reason to choose
She needs a boat to carry her shoes
Well, if it sinks she’ll buy the new one
And you use the subway. Isn’t it fun?

One of her bags costs like your mortgage
What does she do? She just goes to college
But it’s not as important as her Instagram
You don’t think I’m serious? But I am!

Her Instagram is huge vanity fair
Money is flying like birds in the air
Parties, white boat and big diamond ring
Is there something that money can’t bring?

Instagram Princess

No money, no job, my little disaster
I wish this year moved much faster.
Everyone buys presents but me
I don’t even have a Christmas tree.

This year I was both naughty and nice
So I probably should celebrate twice.
But I have nothing, ‘cause I’m fooled bunny!
Well, vulture company, where is my money?

Chorus
Hey, Santa Claus, don’t you need money?
Tell me your secret; it must be so funny,
This Christmas I need your magic skills,
I’d not have to pay my credit card bills.

My friends on Facebook, what have they penned?
They look so happy with their money to spend
They went to vacation, bought junk in the stores
And my cat and I were watching Star Wars.

My former boss’ page is shiny and bright
He is laying on the beach and enjoying sunlight
I bet his vacation costs like a rocket
And it is his fault there’s a wind in my pocket

Chorus
Hey, Santa Claus, don’t you need money?
Tell me your secret; it must be so funny,
This Christmas I need your magic skills,
I’d not have to pay my credit card bills.

My Christmas disaster is a Dickens’ story
And no Scrooge to save me; nobody will worry
I spent my last money to buy food for the cat
And what’s about me? Well, my stomach is sad.

I’ve never been rich, but my life was ideal
C’mon, Santa Claus, let’s make a deal
I didn’t get paid; I’ll not win this rat race
So please put my ex-boss in my poor place.

Chorus
Hey, Santa Claus, don’t you need money?
Tell me your secret; it must be so funny,
This Christmas I need your magic skills,
I’d not have to pay my credit card bills.

Christmas Deal

You say I’m not tender
And I work too hard
You think I’m a spender
Should I cut my card?

My choice is clear
My flaws stay with me
So leave me, dear
And let me be free

Chorus
Ring-ring! You are calling too late
And I know you’re feeling so bad
But it’s not the best reason to date
Well, anyway
I’d rather stay at home with my cat

I’m just a human
You’ll not improve me
I’ll never be the woman
You want me to be

It’s going to rain
Cat is purring on couch
You are calling again
Please stop to crouch

Chorus
Ring-ring! You are calling too late
And I know you’re feeling so bad
But it’s not the best reason to date
Well, anyway
I’d rather stay at home with my cat

I’ll listen to the rain
I prefer it to you
I’m feeling no pain
And enjoying the view

My window is open
Tea’s warming me up
In fact every breakup
It’s just a new start

Chorus
Ring-ring! You are calling too late
And I know you’re feeling so bad
But it’s not the best reason to date
Well, anyway
I’d rather stay at home with my cat

I’d Rather Stay At Home With My Cat

My passion is turning
Into ice flame
Cold heart is burning
You are my aim


No shame, no fear
I’m The Snow Queen
My blizzard's near
You have to come in
My castle's hideout
For brave northern knight
Our love just breaks out
Like bright polar light


Snow castle is lonely
Ice walls are so tall
And you are the only
One to melt them all


No shame, no fear
I’m The Snow Queen
My blizzard's near
You have to come in
My castle's hideout
For brave northern knight
Our love just breaks out
Like bright polar light


Take off your armor
My passion can't wait
I'm your ice charmer
I'm queen of your fate

No shame, no fear
I’m The Snow Queen
My blizzard's near
You have to come in
My castle's hideout
For brave northern knight
Our love just breaks out
Like bright polar light
