Come Sing a Song of Winter
(tune: Have You Ever Seen a Lassie?)

Come sing a song of winter, of winter of winter
Come sing a song of winter, the cold days are here.
With winter winds blowing and rosy cheeks glowing
Come sing a song of winter, the cold days are here.

Come sing a song of winter, of winter of winter
Come sing a song of winter, the snow days are here.
With snow fall and snowmen and icicles frozen
Come sing a song of winter, the cold days are here.

Come sing a song of winter, of winter of winter
Come sing a song of winter, and chilly sports cheer.
With skating and skiing and snow scenes sightseeing
Come sing a song of winter, the cold days are here.

Come sing a song of winter, of winter of winter
Come sing a song of winter, the fun days are here.
And after the sledding comes warm, cozy bedding
Come sing a song of winter, the cold days are here.
