    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    I mushed from Point Barrow through a blizzard of snow
    Been out prospectin' for two years or so
    Pulled into Fairbanks the city was a boom
    So I took a little stroll to the Red Dog Saloon

    As I walked in the door the music was clear
    The purtiest voice I had heard in two years
    The song she was singin' made a man's blood run cold
    When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below

    (When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below)

    It was Redheaded Lil who was singin' so sweet
    I reached down and took the snowpacks off my feet
    I reached for the gal who was singin' the tune
    We did the Eskimo Hop all around the saloon

    With a caribou crawl and the grizzly bear hug
    We did our dance on a kodiak rug
    The song she kept singin' made a man's blood run cold
    When it's springtime in Alaska, it's forty below

    I was as innocent as I could be
    I didn't know Lil was big Ed's wife to be
    He took out his knife and he gave it a throw
    When it's springtime in Alaska, I'll be six feet below

    (When it's springtime in Alaska, he'll be six feet below)
