The seasonal tale of Frosty the Snowman, (Incorporating details of Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer) And his battle for acceptance in a Matt-nosed reindeer world.
Frosty the Snowman, with Rudolph still to go (Talkin’ ‘bout Frosty) Frosty the Snowman, he rocked out in the snow (And he threw shapes).
Frosty the Snowman, was a jolly happy soul (What a snow dude), With a corn cob pipe and a button nose, And two eyes made out of coal.
Frosty the Snowman, was a fairytale, 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!
Yeah, Frosty, the Snowman, Was alive as he could be; And the children say he could dance and play, Just the same as you and me.
Rudolph the bold, Rudolph of old, With his proboscis bright! Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Had a very shiny nose (very shiny nose) And if you ever saw him
You would even say it glows (confidentially) All of the other reindeer Used to laugh and call him names (poor Rudolph) They never let poor Rudolph Join in any reindeer games (even his favourites)
Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say, “Rudolph with your nose so bright, Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?” Then how all the reindeer loved him, And they shouted out with glee, “Rudolph the red-nosed Reindeer You’ll go down in history!”
Frosty the Snowman, with Rudolph’s story done (Talkin’ ‘bout Frosty) Frosty the Snowman, he might melt in the sun (If it’s balmy) Frosty the Snowman, knew the sun was hot that day (What a snow dude), 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, (Why a broomstick?) Running here and there, all round the square, sayin’, “Catch me if you can!” (I’m the man)
Then one groggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say “Frosty with your snappy feet, Won’t you join my delivery fleet?” Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer Had a very happy day Waving goodbye, he cried out “I’ll be back again someday!” (Frosty the snowman had to hurry on his way But he waved goodbye saying “don’t you cry, I’ll be back again someday.”) You know Dasher and Dancer And Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner und Blitzen, Frosty and Rudolph they’re both out of sight, We sing of their stories this very Christmas night. They’ll go down in history all right!
