"It's Our Job"

Remember not so long ago
Of the cold weather we complained
Yes and then it started again
When it seemed it always rained.
 
Well you can still hear those voices
If you stand in the right spot
Once again the weather has changed
and for most it is too hot.
 
We can talk about the weather
Though there's not much we can do
It's just "Mother Natures" way of trying
To please both me and you.
 
Now the weather makes one change their plans
Upon any given day
Yet it's something you must deal with
When you're on vacation far away.
 
Yes it's our job to complain
And we do it very well
Still when our favorite will come around
It's much too hard to tell.
 
Accept it as it is each day
Knowing that it soon could change
then perhaps it will be what you want
For the weather can be strange.
