We met in the winter
And we fell in love

Right by a fire place
We shared our first embrace
And then inside my heart
I felt a fire start
It's gonna snow outside
The weather will be cold
But I'm gonna be warm (ho ho) this winter

Each time your lips touch mine
They taste like sparkling wine
I feel so warm and loved
Just cause I love you so

It's cozy in your arms
If you're so happy to hold
But I'm gonna be warm (ho ho) this winter

Ice skating on a frozen lake
Sleigh riding down a mountain slide
Roasting popcorn, dancing till the dawn
That was how, a new love was born

It's just like make believe
Each night is new years eve
Each day is Xmas day
You make me feel this way
It's gonna snow outside
The weather will be cold
But I'm gonna be warm (ho ho) this winter

You know it's gonna snow outside
The weather will be cold
But I'm gonna be warm (ho ho) this winter

Oh
Oh, you'll make me warm this winter
Oh baby make me warm (ho ho) this winter

Oh
Oh, you'll make me warm this winter
Oh baby make me warm (ho ho) this winter

Song facts

"I'm Gonna Be Warm This Winter" is a 1962 single by Connie Francis. In 2008 The Co-operative Food had Australian singer Gabriella Cilmi remake the song — retitled "Warm This Winter" — to be played during the company's advertising aired over the holiday season. The track was also played heavily in the Co-operative's stores. Cilmi's version of the song alters the opening line of the original Francis hit from "We met at a ski lodge" to "We met in the winter".

Released on 15 December 2008 as an exclusive digital download track, "Warm This Winter" peaked at number twenty-two on the UK Singles Chart on the issue dated 27 December 2008, outranking Cilmi's precedent physical single "Sanctuary", which had failed to chart at all in the UK. The single also outpeaked "Save the Lies", which had peaked at number thirty-three.

"Warm This Winter" was added to Cilmi's Lessons to Be Learned album for its deluxe edition released in the UK on 24 November 2008.

The track has received enough downloads during the 2009 holiday season to appear at #94 on the UK Top 100 Singles chart dated 19 December 2009.
