Frosty the Irish Snowman

from Celtic Christmas Greetings by Marc Gunn



Frosty the Snow Man, was a jolly craic'n soul
With a corn-cob pipe and a button nose
and two eyes made out of coal.

Frosty the Snow Man, belongs to the fae they say
He was made of snow but the wee folk know
how he came to life one day.

There must have been some magic in
that old tweed hat they found,
For when they placed it on his head
he danced a jig all 'round.

Oh, Frosty the Snow Man was alive as he could be,
And the children say he could laugh and play
just the same as you and me.

Frosty the Snow Man,' knew the sun was out that day,
So he said, "Let's run and we'll have some fun
now before I melt away."

Down to the village, a shillelagh in his hand,
Running here and there all around the square,
saying "Catch me if you can."

He led them down old Galway town
right to the traffic cop,
And he only paused a moment when
he heard him holler, "Stop!"

Frosty the Snow Man had to hurry on his way,
But he waved good-bye, saying, "Don't you cry;
I'll be back again some day."

Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump,
over the hills of snow...Oh...Oh...over the [D7]hills of snow.
