Can Anyone Help with an English Song that Starts “Sing a song of winter…”?

Krissy wrote to me from Germany, looking for help with an English song:

Hi Mama Lisa,

I wonder if you could help me.

At school – in our English lessons, which is long, long ago – we had learnt an English song, which I know the melody of and the beginning of the text.

For some other old songs I have found answers by “Google”, but not for my song which goes like that:

Sing a song of winter,
Happiness and fun.
Frosty nights and mornings
Tell us it’s begun.

I would be very glad to hear from you.

Kind regards

Krissy from Germany
(Jadebusen/North Sea)

If anyone can help with the lyrics to this song, please let us know in the comments below.

Thanks in advance!

-Mama Lisa

    Sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of rye,
    Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie,
    When the pie was opened the birds began to sing,
    Wasn’t that a dainty dish to set before the King!

    Don’t know if this is what you meant, Krissy, but it may be a variation of it.

    Dear Mary,
    thank you very much for your response. However, much to my regret this is not the song I’m looking for.
    I found the music for your Sing a song of sixpence by Google:

    Dear Crissy from Germany,
    we also sang that song at English lessons. I kept the following in mind:
    Sing a song of winter, happiness and fun,
    frosty nights and mornings, tell how it’s begun,
    when the snow is falling, all we dance and sing,
    winter is a jolly time, and pleasures it can bring.

    Sing a song of Christmas, happiness and fun,
    hanging up our stockings, hang they one by one,
    Santa Claus is coming, fills them all…….
    teedle daadle daadel dum……
    Unfortunately i’ve forgotten the rest. Does anybody know?

    Sing a Song of Winter (tune of Sing a Song of Sixpence)
    Sing a song of winter
    A snowstorm in the sky
    Four and twenty snowflakes
    Swirl so quickly by
    I am so warm and cozy
    I skip along and sing
    Mittens on and warm scarf on
    And boots and everything.

    Sing a Song of Winter (tune of The More We Get Together)

    Come sing a song of winter
    Of winter, of winter
    Come sing a song of winter
    The cold days are here.
    With snowing and blowing
    And rosy cheeks glowing
    Come sing a song of winter
    The cold days are here.
