I went strolling one bright morning in December,
The first time this year we saw the snow;
I stopped to watch a little boy catch snowflakes,
And to one great big snowdrop he whispered low:

Please, Mister Snowflake,
tell your friends to stay for Christmas,
Because no one wants to see them melt away;
Please, Mister Snowflake,
tell your friends to stay for Christmas,
They will brighten up the world on Christmas Day.

On your soft, white snowy blanket we go sliding,
Me and all the kids on our street
And even dear old Santa Claus is happy,
'Cause snow don't hurt his tiny reindeers' feet.

Please, Mister Snowflake,
tell your friends to stay for Christmas,
Because no one wants to see them melt away;
Please, Mister Snowflake,
tell your friends to stay for Christmas,
They will brighten up the world on Christmas Day.

I've been hearing all big people sing of Christmas,
And they hope that every Christmas will be white;
So all your friends are welcome, Mister Snowflake,
And please don't let them melt away tonight.

Please, Mister Snowflake,
tell your friends to stay for Christmas,
Because no one wants to see them melt away;
Please, Mister Snowflake,
tell your friends to stay for Christmas,
They will brighten up the world on Christmas Day.
