  • Frosty the Snowman
    Was a jolly happy soul
    With a corncob pipe and a button nose
    And his eyes made out of coal

    Frosty the Snowman
    Made the children laugh and play
    And were they surprised when
    Before their eyes
    He came to life that day

    There must have been some magic
    In that old silk hat they found
    For when they placed it on his head
    He began to dance around

    Frosty the Snowman
    Was alive as he could be
    And the children say
    He could laugh and play
    Just the same as you and me

    Frosty the Snowman
    Knew the sun was hot that day
    So he said let's run
    And we'll have fun
    Now before I melt away

    So down to the village
    With a broomstick in his hand
    Running here and there all around the square
    Saying catch me if you can

    He led them down the streets of town
    Right to the traffic cop
    And he only paused a moment when
    He heard him holler stop

    Frosty the Snowman
    Had to hurry on his way
    But he waved goodbye
    Saying don't you cry
    I'll be back again some day

    Thumpety thump thump
    Thumpety thump thump
    Look at Frosty go
    Thumpety thump thump
    Thumpety thump thump
