OK, I'm trying my first one and OF COURSE it has to be classical music 
(was going to try a sacred carol like O Holy Night or O Magnum Mysterium 
but figured few would know them and those who would might take offense. 
But EVERYBODY knows the bits from the Nutcracker Suite (the 2nd act 
dances), right? These even get used in movie ads. So, this is to the 
tune of the Trepak/Russian/Coffee, or however you learned it. Rhythm is 
YA-da-da-da-da-dum-dum-dum-da, ya-da-da-da-da-dum-dum-dum-da (ie, fast) 
if you need it picked out for you. This is also MY first try; please be

Go, Artemesia, go, go, go
I'm sitting in a pile of snow
But you just sit there overflowing.
  Italy's full and biscuits drowned
And bubbles rise from underground
All they do is mesmerize us,
Oh, Artemesia, please have mercy on us,
The hot tea's gone; we're really freezing .
Why can't you be like once you were before
When I could sit for just two hours
And you'd erupt
Erupt, erupt erupt erupt erupt!

Go, Artemesia, go, go, go
I'm digging out a house of snow
You've overflowed for 18 hours
I'm gonna see you anyway
Even if it takes all day
You overflowed at just 10 minutes
But bears are pawing at my food
A bison's making pre-charge signals
I see a moose, his hackles rising
I pack
To go
OMG there go the thumps!
