Overview

The lyrics of the song make reference to the urban legend that Walt Disney was placed in suspended animation upon his death The lyrics themselves deal with Cuomo's frustrations with touring:

"I tried to describe the frozen, numb condition I had fallen into after seven months in the spotlight on the road. The song had a beautiful, mellow sound. I really appreciated it and was grateful to it. It did capture the state of my life at the time."

Rivers has said that the "phone singing" line in the third verse was a stand in for Weezer's manager calling him to go over the details of the impending tour which he dreaded.

Personnel

  • Rivers Cuomo – lead guitar, lead vocals, percussion, rhythm guitar, bass guitar, keyboard

Lyrics

It's cold outside
Seven months of suicide
I've been in
Suspended animation
Just like Walt Disney

My only love
Asks for me to wait out there
I waited
Waited but she didn't care
Just like Walt Disney
I'm just thawing out

My fingertips and toes are frozen to the bone
Give me an hour before you throw me in the cold

Ring ring ring
Now I hear the phone singing
Calling Me
Telling me to start freezing
Just like Walt Disney, yeah
I'm a block of ice

My fingertips and toes are frozen to the bone
Give me an hour before you throw me in the cold
Give me an hour before you pick me up and throw me 'cross the sea
Why don't you please?

Just like Walt Disney
