With Apologies to The Drifters...

You know how high school proms have a theme song? Well, this was the theme song of my ango. (Hear it done properly here.)

When the rain comes down like it's done six weeks in a row
And the night gets so cold you think your candle flame might just have froze
Under the Tyvek, beneath a tree
On a zafu with my mudra, is where I'll be

Under the Tyvek
Mice are haulin' their tails
Under the Tyvek
Squirrels droppin' their scales
Under the Tyvek
Slugs are dancin' the Twist
Under the Tyvek
What kind of wisdom is this?
Under the Tyvek
