Carpenters – First Snowfall lyrics

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 soon be belly-whopping on his ear

On the first snowfall of the winter

Oh the 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 show
