Frosty, our snowman, usually plays a merry tune
On his little accordion - as Christmas is coming soon
This year he hopes the snow, on the ground will long remain
So children can learn the message of his prophetic refrain.
The winter should be cold and clear and the snow both crisp and deep
Frosty needs this snowy coat, his snowy shape to keep
But only coaly eyes, carrot, a hat and woolly scarf will stay
If an early thaw arrives, and Frosty melts away.
The message from the weatherman tells us a tale of woe
For with the warming climate therell be far less fall of snow
The future is really grim for music of his kind
For his snowy tunes will not be heard across the snowy land.
