The Cloisters Snowman



Was a jolly happy soul
    With a corncob pipe
    And a button nose and
    Two eyes made out of coal

    Frosty the snowman
    Is a fairy tale they say
    He was made of snow
    But the children know
    How he came to life one 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

    Joey the snowman
    Knew the sun was hot that day
    So he said, "Let's run
    And we'll have some fun
    Now before I melt away"

    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"
    Thumpity, thump, thump
    Thumpity, thump, thump
    Look at Joey go

    Thumpity, thump, thump
    Thumpity, thump, thump
    Over the hills of snow.
