Our Winter-Weary Flash Mob Parodies Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off'

SICK of the snow? Even we winter-loving Vermonters are weary of the white stuff and dreaming of spring. Ready to shake off winter doldrums and the hassles of snow-bound days and frigid nights? We convened a dance party to do just that. A flash mob of Gardener's Supply employee-owners braved 25-degree weather in tights and Tubtrug tutus to bring you this Taylor Swift "Shake It Off" parody. Let the snow melt and the gardening begin!

Lyrics

I miss my garden plot
I wanna grow a lot
I'd even takes some weeds
I've planted all my seeds
I'm planning what I'll grow
I make the rows up as I go
But right now there's too much snow
Right now there's too much snow
So I keep on shov'ling
Can't stop, won't stop plowing
It's like I got this dream
In my mind saying spring's gonna be here soon
'Cause the dreamers wanna grow, grow, grow grow, grow
And Mother Nature's gonna snow, snow, snow, snow, snow
Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off
'Cause the dreamers wanna grow, grow, grow grow, grow
And Mother Nature's gonna snow, snow, snow, snow, snow
Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, shake it off

'Cause winter is too cold
It's getting really old
I dream of summer days
And the veggies I will taste
We get too many flakes
I hope that they won't stay
At least that's what gard'ners say
That's what gard'ners say
So I keep on shov'ling
Can't stop, won't stop plowing
It's like I got this dream
In my mind saying spring's gonna be here soon
'Cause the dreamers wanna grow, grow, grow grow, grow
And Mother Nature's gonna snow, snow, snow, snow, snow
Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off
'Cause the dreamers wanna grow, grow, grow grow, grow
And Mother Nature's gonna snow, snow, snow, snow, snow
Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, shake it off
