Angels In The Snow (Buddy Wasisname)

When you were a little girl
and the first big flakes would fall,
Your eyes would shine as brightly
as those painted on your doll;
No matter if the hour was late
or the wind began to blow,
You would ask me, "Please,
can I make angels in the snow?"

We'd dress you up in a suit so warm
and outside we would go,
And you would show me how to make
angels in the snow,
In the snow, angels in the snow,
A simple childhood pleasure,
angels in the snow.

How quickly do our children grow?
Innocence moves fast.
It seems like only yesterday
but so many years have passed;
Your teen years are upon you.
Look how much you've grown!
From the little child who loved
to make angels in the snow.

We'd dress you up in a suit so warm
and outside we would go,
And you would show me how to make
angels in the snow,
In the snow, angels in the snow,
A simple childhood pleasure,
angels in the snow.

You're moving farther every day,
places I can't reach.
Crossing deeper rivers,
bridges I can't breach.
But if sometimes I'm too busy,
running to and fro,
Remind me please to take some time
and make angels in the snow.

We'd dress you up in a suit so warm
and outside we would go,
And you would show me how to make
angels in the snow,
In the snow, angels in the snow,
A simple childhood pleasure,
angels in the snow.
