Frosty The Snowman


Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,

With a corncob pipe
And two eyes

He was made of snow

There must have been
Old silk hat.
For when they placed
He began to 


Oh, Frosty 
Was alive as
And the children 
And play just the

Thumpetty thump
Look at 

 He led them down
Right to the
And he only paused
He heard him


For Frosty 
Had to hurry
But he waved,
'Don't you
I'll be back

Thumpetty thump
Look at.

Thumpetty thump

The tale of Frosty the Snowman is a classic Christmas song filled with winter holiday fun. It tells the story of an ordinary snowman with a button for a nose, and a pipe made out of an corncob, that magically came to life after having an old hat made of silk placed on his head. Frosty is described as a happy and jolly snowman who could speak, laugh, dance and play with the children as they squealed with delight "look at frosty go!". Frosty knows that his animated state won't last for long, he knew that the heat of the sun would cause him to melt away, so he urges the children to have some fun running with him into the village before he melts. The snowman runs around the village square with his broomstick in a game of "catch me if you can". As he goes down the street he is stopped by a traffic officer, Frosty pauses a moment then hurries off and waves goodbye to the children telling them not to cry since he will someday return, and he heads back over the snowy hills.
