about

Ski bum lingo is used to prove that "no friends on a powder day" is a myth in a song about ritualistic ceremonies to appease the gods of snow in this steady rhythmic marimba/ukulele hybrid ballad of hope.

lyrics

"Together Now"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

We need to pray to Ullr, the Norse god of snow
Sacrifice a pair of skis and burn 'em 'till they glow
Maybe sacrifice some cells, wake up in a haze
Ready for freshies with so many trails to blaze

Together now, we'll make the clouds dump snow all night
Together now, and when we wake the sun will shine bright
Together now, we’ll pray to ski another bluebird day
Together now, 'till then we're like surfers with no waves

Just like the Vikings, we'll do a snow dance
Sing and drink ourselves into a hypnotic trance
Around the fire roastin' twinkies to keep the stoke high
As ashes float up, big flakes will float down from the sky

Together now, we'll make it through this snowy night
Together now, when we awake the sun will shine bright
Together now, get raccoon tans while we ski in champagne
Together now, trackin' up the bowls and soakin' in the rays

Tonight we'll dream of sunny snorkeling
Tomorrow we'll scream with every face shot scene
And from the chairs we'll cheer each other on
Knowing local's secret stashes last all day long

Together now, we know it's gonna snow all night
Together now, and in the morning clouds are out of sight
Together now, because we live for waist-deep ways
Together now, with fatties we can float all day

Together now, because we need some fresh pow
Together now, we've gone too many days without
Together now, for us it's never true what they say
Together now, there's always friends on a powder day

Together now
Together now
Together now
