Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland Vocals2Piano & Voice
00:00 / 02:30

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?

In the lane, snow is glistening

A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight

Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird

Here to stay is a new bird

He sings a love song as we go along

Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow, we can build a snowman

And pretend that he is Parson Brown

He'll say, "Are you married?" We'll say, "No man"

But you can do the job when you're in town

Later on, we'll conspire

As we dream by the fire

We'll face unafraid, the plans that we've made

Walking in a winter wonderland

Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow, we can build a snowman

And pretend that he’s a circus clown.

We’ll have lots of fun with Mr. Snowman,

Until the other kiddies knock him down.

 

When it snows, ain’t it thrillin’

Tho your nose gets a chillin?

We’ll frolic and play, the eskimo way,

Walking in a winter wonderland

Wal-king in a wi-nter wo-nder-la______nd!

Peace, Peace

Peace, Peace2 Part Voice
00:00 / 02:14

PART I

Peace, peace peace on earth and good will to all.

This is a time for joy, this is a time for love.

Now let us all sing together of peace, peace, peace on earth.

PART 2 (Labeled Part III in sheet music)

Lu Lu Lu Luuuu... (Silent Night Melody sung on Lu)

Pinecones and Holly Berries

PART 1

Pine cones and Holly Berries,

Popcorn for you, apples for me

Red striped candy, nutcracker handy,

Kettle a-bubbling holiday tea.

Snow clouds hang low and threatening.

Maybe it won't, praying it may

The brightest fireplace glows in every face

waiting for Christmas day!   

waiting for Christmas day!

PART 2

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas,

Everywhere you go!

There's a tree in the grand hotel, 

one in the park as well,

the sturday kind that doesn't mind the snow.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, 

Soon the bell will start.

And the thing that will make them ring 

is the carols that you sing

Right within your heart,

Right within you heart.

Snow is Falling Still

Snow is Falling Still2 Part Voice
00:00 / 02:46

PART 1

Softly the snowflakes fall to the ground, 

Spinning and twirling and dancing around.

The hills are blanketed with drifts of white. 

Oh, what a calm and peaceful sight!

Softly the snowflakes fall to the ground,

They never make a sound. 

PART 2

Still, still, still, 

as the snow gently falls all around. 

The world is calm and all is bright

On this peaceful, silent night.

Still, still, still, 

As the snow gently falls all around.

Frosty Hand Jive

F, I said F-R, I said F-R-O, I said F-R-O-S,  F-R-O-S-T-Y, 

Doin’ the Frosty Hand Jive!

Frosty the Snowman was a jolly happy soul

With a corn cob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal  X  X

Frosty the Snowman is a fairytale they say

He was made of snow, but the children know how he came to life one day  X  X

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  X  X

Man that Frosty sure is tough, watch that Frosty strut his stuff

Frosty’s having lots of fun, but keep him out of the blazing sun!

Thumpety, thump, thump, Thumpety, thump, thump, look at Frosty go, Frosty!

Thumpety, thump, thump, Thumpety, thump, thump, over the hills of snow, Frosty!

Frosty the Snowman had to hurry on his way

But he waved good-bye, saying, "Don't you cry I'll be back again some day!"                                                                                                                                          

F, I said F-R, I said F-R-O, I said F-R-O-S, F-R-O-S-T-Y, Doin’ the Frosty Hand Ji-ive, Hand Jive!
