(1978)






Oh, the first snowfall of the winter
Was a day that we all waited for
When it drifted to and frost
Why you should’ve seen the snow
It was near seven feet or more
By the old barn door



Oh, the first snowfall of the winter
What a joy for a boy to behold
In each house you’ll find a sleigh
That was waiting for this day
And of course, down the road a hill
For each Jack and Jill



Every winter breeze that scurries
Sets the snowflakes up in flurries
It’s the good old sentimental season when
Folks put runners on their surreys
And forget about their worries
When a man becomes a boy once again



Oh, the first snowfall of the winter
Jingle bells bring us spells ever dear
Under wintry skies of gray
It was snowing all the day
And it showed no signs of stopping
Every kid with eyes of popping
Will be soon be belly-whopping on his ear



On the first snowfall of the winter
Oh, that first snowfall of the year



The first snow of the year
Is just about the best snow
Well, I’ll say any snow
Is a pretty good snow



Oh, the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
But since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow
Let it snow
Let it snow



It doesn’t show signals and stopping
And I’ve got some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow
Let it snow
Let it snow



We finally kiss goodnight
How I hate going out in the storm
But if you’ll really hold me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm



The fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still goodbying
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow
Let it snow, let it snow
’Cause we’ve got no place to go
Let it snow
Let it snow
Let it snow



Let it snow
