The words to Frosty the Snowman are fun to sing and easy to remember. Think jolly–that’s what Frosty was (until he melted)! The lyrics to Frosty the Snowman have been sung by Burl Ives, the International Children’s Choir, The Jackson 5, The Ronettes, Cocteau Twins, Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Beach Boys, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Connie Talbot, Larry Groce, Ray Conniff, Leon Redbone with Dr. John, Red Foley, Fiona Apple, Peter Pan Players, Pepermint Kandy Kids, and many other musical groups and artists. Here are the words to this traditional holiday song:

Frosty the snowman was a jolly, happy soul
With a corn cob 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

Oh 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

Thumpetty thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
Look at Frosty go
Thumpetty thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
Over the hills of snow

Frosty 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!”

For Frosty the snow man
Had to hurry on his way
But he waved goodbye saying,
“Don’t you cry,
I’ll be back again some day.”

Thumpetty thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpetty thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
O’er the hills of snow.

About this song: Walter “Jack” Rollins and Steve Nelson wrote the popular tune Frosty the Snowman. In 1950, Gene Autry and the Cass County Boys were the first to sing it. The song Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer had been written and sung by the same team the year before and became a huge hit–largely due to the media. Frosty had a similar fate. It’s one of the songs that children can learn in a single season just because of the number of times it is sung on television decades after its release.
