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.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Over the hills of snow.

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 hand,
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!"
For 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."
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Over the hills of snow

    I think this song is trying to say that there is magic in imagination. In the movie, when Frosty and the children come across an adult, the adult has a look of disbelief. The movie also show that you have to learn to let go and not become to attached to something you've made up because that can also be bad. At the end of the movie, the little girl who stayed with Frosty when he was melting was really sad, and that is natural, but Frosty said to not cry because he will always come back on Christmas Day. As the old saying goes: "If you love something let it go, if it was meant to be, then it will come back to you and if it wasn't meant to be then it will stay away" I don't know where I am going with this I was just trying to get an awesome on the scale thy have. If you read all this then good job and thanks. If you didn't read all this then you don't know if I'm saying bad things about you, but don't worry I am not.

    This shows another meaning of Christmas and creativity but I think that small children can think of the deeper meaning and get lost in their thoughts. Maybe its a bit sad or happy but It is a very jolly song to sing just as Frosty. Just don't be sad you little children out there! Your frosty will come back one day and all your beloved ones wll always stay in your memories . Thank you and I hope appreciate my help. It is nothing BUT it would great if u liked my post. Merry Christmas everyone & a happy new year to you all.

    I think that the meaning of this song is not as deep as everyone says. The song is simply trying to spread the Christmas cheer! I think a lot of people try to think too hard on what the song really means. It just tells the tale of Frosty The Snowman, from the movie. Just try to think as little as you can and you will realize how little and how much this song means. It is trying to spread Christmas cheer which is little thing but it can mean so much to precious little children. I hope everyone can hear this song and remember what i said. I honestly am not really sure where i am going with this whole thing but i really really really really want to get on the Awesome scale they have. Achieved.
