Barney, Baby Bop, and Frosty in 2017

Frosty the Snowman is a popular Christmas song written by Walter "Jack" Rollins and Steve Nelson, and first recorded by Gene Autry and the Cass County Boys in 1950 and later recorded by Jimmy Durante, releasing it as a single. It was written after the success of Autry's recording of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" the previous year; Rollins and Nelson shipped the new song to Autry, who recorded "Frosty" in search of another seasonal hit. This song was first used in A Holiday in the Park with Barney, the Christmas version of A Day in the Park with Barney and Happy Holidays Love, Barney.


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'd 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
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
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 we waved goodbye saying, "Don't you cry.
I'll be back again someday."
Thumpety, thump, thump. Thumpety, thump, thump.
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpety, thump, thump. Thumpety, thump, thump.
Over the hills of snow.
