Notes

Here's a rhyming version of this song:

It snows! It snows!
Come out and see how grand!
The world, the world
A powdered wonderland.
It snows! It snows!
You have to see this now
Come along! Come along!
We're going sled - ding - wow!

We will run through the fields of white
And have a good old snowball fight
We will throw and chase - just not in the face!

It snows! It snows!
Come out and see how grand!
The world, the world
A powdered wonderland.
It snows! It snows!
You have to see this now
Come along! Come along!
We're going sled - ding - wow!

We are getting our sleds all out
Laughing, shouting, we slide a - bout.
A snowman we will build
We are getting chilled!

It snows! It snows!
Come out and see how grand!
The world, the world
A powdered wonderland.
It snows! It snows!
You have to see this now
Come along! Come along!
We're going sled-ding-wow!

What's grey- is white
What's dark- is bright
The world - is covered up -
- until the early spring sun
Comes out to wake it up.

It snows! It snows!
Come out and see how grand!
The world, the world
A powdered wonderland.
It snows! It snows!
You have to see this now
Come along! Come along!
We're going sled-ding-wow!
It snows! It snows! It snows!
