Piese clasice de Crăciun: „Frosty the Snowman” – VIDEO

Frosty the Snowman” este un cântec faimos scris de Walter “Jack” Rollins şi Steve Nelson, interpretat pentru prima dată de artistul Gene Autry şi trupa ”The Cass County Boys” în anul 1950.

A fost scris după ce, cu un an în urmă, Autrey înregistrase cântecul ”Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, iar acum căutau un nou hit pentru sărbătorile de iarnă.

Versurile piesei spun povestea unui om de zăpadă care este adus la viaţă, în mod miraculos, de către un grup de copii.

Se spune că locul unde a luat naştere celebrul om de zăpadă ar fi Armonk, New York, motiv pentru care Armonk organizează în fiecare an o paradă dedicată lui Frosty.

Versuri „Frosty the snowman”:

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

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

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!”

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 Frosty go

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