Mad scientist has invented a machine to control the weather. Don't judge his taste.


I Like It Mild

Heatwaves and hailstorms, how boring.
Tsunamis and tornadoes...oh please.
I prefer my tempests in a teacup.
My wicked tastes are more... overcast,
'Round about 14 degrees! [evil laugh, hand rubbing etc.]

I like it mild, and mild it shall be!
Oh that must fill your heart with…trepidation!?
Yes, slightly cloudy, with a hint of sunshine, I decree!
And possibly a slight chance of… precipitation. [hands rub together…]

You wish for snow fall, a white Christmas?! Oh, you can dream!
I give you drizzle! Santa never reads your letters!
And summer sunshine? Blue skies and icecream? Ha ha ha!
Well, I'm the reason that you'll have to pack your sweaters!

Oh, you might expect that someone with my genius,
Would make thunderclouds and lightning fill the sky!
You'd think I'd show my rage with stormy weather?
But actually, I’m a pretty happy guy… seriously!!!
Meteorology is just kind of a…hobby for me…

I like it mild, and mild it shall be!
Oh that must fill your heart with…trepidation!?
When I feel wild, I just raise it one degree! Ha, ha ha!
But there’s always just a slight chance of… precipitation.

It's true, on a whim, I could totally ruin your summer vacation.
These powers are only limited by my...imagination!

Ha ha ha, I like it MILD!!
