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. 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. Like “Rudolph”, “Frosty” was subsequently adapted to other media including a popular television special by Rankin/Bass Productions, Frosty the Snowman.

Lyrics

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

O 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

He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop
And he only paused a moment when
He heard them holler “Stop!”

Frosty the snow man
Had to hurry on his way
But he waved goodbye saying
“Don’t you cry I’ll be back again some day”

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh yeah

Songwriters: Jack Rollins / Steve Nelson
