Frosty the Snow Man - Thumpity-thump-thump
As a young mother back in 1969, I sat down baby in arms, and watched Frosty the Snowman on TV for the first time. It was the first of many times that I watched that TV special with the first of many babies. We listened to the voice of Jimmy Durante as the narrator telling the story of Frosty. This TV special and the song Frosty The Snowman are dear to my heart at Christmas Time.
Frosty the Snowman was written by Walter "Jack" Rollins and Steve Nelson and recorded by Gene Autry and The Cass County Boys about the time I was learning to talk back in 1950. I grew up with Frosty and was thrilled to share this beloved song and the Frosty Special with each and every one of my boys.
Frosty The Snowman - my interpretation of my "holiday frosty" with partial lyrics
Frosty the 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
I can see Frosty going thumpity-thump over the hills of snow.
He Said "Let's run and we'll have some fun"
He knew he was going to melt away
Have fun, take time to enjoy being with the kids. They will remember.
