Third grade teacher Mary Morris from Strawberry Plains, Tennessee, really wants a snow day — "or two or maybe 23."
Morris released "Snow," her oh-so-relatable parody of Adele's "Hello" on Jan. 5. On Thursday, as snowstorms began threatening the East Coast, she released the impeccably well-timed music video of her parody, complete with her own version of Adele's now-iconic getup of a fur coat and oversized sunglasses.
As the video opens, Morris sulks into her school's hallway, sighs and addresses the weather. "Snow, it's me," she sings, "I know we just got out for Christmas/ But I'm ready for some more time/ To myself, you see/ So if you could come a day or two or maybe 23."
She continues, "We need a snow day, tomorrow." But Morris isn't picky, compromising, "Or at least a good delay."
Morris's plea isn't without reason. She rationalizes, "If it has to be so cold/ The least that it can do is snow/ If I have to keep my students inside/ One more time, for recess, I'm gonna lose my mind," a sentiment anyone cooped up inside with "antsy" third graders (or even antsy adult colleagues) can probably relate to.
Morris continues to sing what's on all of our minds: "I love it when I get the call/ That I don't have to work at all/ That I don't have to work at all I can stay in bed/ Watch Netflix all day/ I can even spend it in my PJs/ If I want."
Looks like the snow's been listening to Morris' cry. East Coasters, as you prepare for the storms heading your way, remember that it's not all bad — you'll have plenty of time to watch Netflix in your PJs!
