Representative Text

1 Jack Frost has been around again,
He’s nipped the summer flow’rs,
He’s changed the color of the trees
In all the woodland bow’rs.

Jack Frost is here again,
Jack Frost is here again,
O yes, its very plain to see
Jack Frost is here again.

2 He’s turned the leaves that once were green,
To red and gold and brown,
And then he’s called the wildest wind
To come and shake them down. [Refrain]

3 He loves to pinch our rosy cheeks,
Our fingers and our toes,
He’s full of mischief and of fun
As everybody knows. [Refrain]
