Beware the naked man

Suddenly topical in Wellington, “Naked Man” is a song by Randy Newman, from his 1974 album Good Old Boys, and is performed here by the Grass Roots in 1975. The first verse and chorus go like this:
Old lady lost in the city
In the middle of a cold, cold night
It was fourteen below and the wind start to blow
There wasn’t a boy scout in sight
Pull down the shades cause he’s comin’
Turn out the lights cause he’s here
Runnin’ hard down the street [ . . . ]
Through the snow and the sleet
On the coldest night of the year
Beware, beware, beware of the Naked Man.
