Burl Ives – Snow For Johnny lyrics
Please send some snow
Some snow for Johnny
He wants to build
A big snowman

It was a week just before Christmas
Way down in Louisiana
A little boy was kneeling by his bed
In a manner poised and grand

I listened as he said his prayers
His voice came soft and low
He said, "God tell Saint Nicholas
To send a little snow"

Please send some snow
Some snow for Johnny
He wants to build
A big snowman

I'd like to build a snowman
Like the other children do
I've got an old top hat and a walking cane
Got a big long cigar too

Yes, everything is ready
And I'm all set to go
How can I build a snowman
When I haven't any snow

Please send some snow
Some snow for Johnny
He wants to build
A big snowman

Now, early Christmas morning
Much to his surprise
Snowflakes by the million
Were falling from the skies

Down the stairs and out-of-doors
As fast as he could go
So happy that Saint Nicholas
Had sent a little snow

Thanks for the snow
The snow for Johnny
Now he can build
A big snowman

Thanks for the snow
The snow for Johnny
Now he can build
A big snowman

Thanks for the snow
The snow for Johnny
Now he can build
A big snowman
