Frosty the Snowman [Jesus]
Was a jolly happy soul [was divine]
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal [and yet human]

Frosty the Snowman [Jesus]
Is a fairytale they say [is often dismissed as myth]
He was made of snow [due to his brief corporeal existence]
But the children know [but the faithful know]
How he came to life one day [about the resurrection]

There must have been some magic [his divinity was shown]
In that old silk hat they found [in the crown of thorns]
For when they placed it on his head [symbolizing his status as a sacrificial pagan king]
He began to dance around [as he accepted his role]

Frosty the Snowman [Jesus]
Was alive as he could be [lived on earth despite his divinity]
And the children say
He could laugh and play
Just the same as you and me [as one of us]

Frosty the Snowman [Jesus]
Knew the sun was hot that day [knew the Romans would give him an unfair trial]
So he said let's run [so he and his disciples hid]
And we'll have some fun [and held a last supper]
Now before I melt away [before his imminent death]

Down to the village [he rode into town]
With a broomstick in his hand [and the Romans shoved reeds into his hands]
Running here and there all around the square [but he ignored their mockery]
Saying catch me if you can [proclaiming that even sinners can follow him to salvation]

He led them down the streets of town [he walked through streets strewn with palms]
Right to the traffic cop [to Pontius Pilate’s punishment]
And he only paused a moment when [showing only one moment of doubt]
He heard him holler stop [as it was carried out]

Frosty the Snowman [Jesus]
Had to hurry on his way [was only in his mortal body briefly]
But he waved goodbye [but in his final moments]
Saying don't you cry [he reassured the faithful]
I'll be back again some day [of a second coming]

along simmilar lines.... but, copied from an eMail i got
it turns out that the song we all grew up with is actually a censored version. Spend the time to read Woody Guthrie's original
lyrics, and take a guess which 3 versus no longer 'exist'.


This land is your land, this land is my land
From California to the New York Island
From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream water
This land was made for you and me

As I was walkin', that ribbon of highway
I saw above me, that endless skyway
I saw below me, that golden valley
I said this land was made for you and me

I've roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sand of her diamond desert
And all around me, a voice was sounding:
This land was made for you and me

Down in the city, in the shadow of the steeple
By the relief office, I saw my people
As they stood there hungry I stood there whistling:
This land was made for you and me

As I went walking, I saw a sign there
And on that sign it said "Private Property"
But on the other side it didn't say nothin'
That side was made for you and me !

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway
Nobody living can make me turn back, cuz
This land was made for you and me

The sun came shining, and I was strolling
And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
As the fog was lifting, a voice was chanting:
This land was made for you and me

We used to make fun of that song and sing:

This land is my land; it isn't your land
If you don't get off, I'll blow your head off
I have a shotgun; you haven't got one
This land is private property.

Hahahahahaha. Okay, it was funny at the time. Actually my 4th grade teacher (Judy Bloom, not Blume, but we thought it was hilarious) was a folk singer, so we sang lots of Woody Guthrie & Bob Dylan & Simon and Garfunkel and such. She was cool and had a dog named Boo!
