"Frosty the Snowman" is a popular song written by Walter "Jack" Rollins and Steve Nelson, and first recorded by Gene Autry and the Cass County Boys in 1950. It was written after the success of Autry's recording of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" the previous year; Rollins and Nelson shipped the new song to Autry, who recorded "Frosty" in search of another seasonal hit. Like "Rudolph," "Frosty" was subsequently adapted to other media including a popular television special. The song was originally titled "Frosty the Snow Man."

Ella's accompanied by Frank DeVol & His Orchestra. Recorded July 15, 1960 at Columbia Recording Studios, New York City. (Verve Records)

Who's debonair with the tall silk hat?
Muffler of wool and a tummy that's fat?
King for a day, and he loves the road
With a broomstick cain and a heart of gold

That's Frosty the Snowman
He's a jolly, happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal

Frosty the Snowman is a fairytale they say
He was made of snow
But the children know
How he came to life one day

There must have been some magic
In that old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around

Oh, Frosty the Snowman
Was alive as he could be
And the children say
He could laugh and play just the same as you and me

Oh Frosty the Snowman
Knew the sun was hot that day
So he said let's run
And we'll have some fun now before I melt away

So down to the village
With a broomstick in his hand
Running here and there all around the square
Saying catch me if you can

He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler, "Stop!"

For Frosty the Snowman had to hurry on his way
But he waved goodbye
Saying don't you cry
I'll be back again some day

Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump, thump
Look at Frosty go, hey look at him
Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump, thump
Over the hills of snow
