Jack Frost


(Music by Mildred J. Hill, Lyrics by Patty S. Hill, publ. 1896)

Children, children, winter is here,
Little Jack Frost is out I fear,
Painting windows, freezing streams
While all the dear children are dreaming sweet dreams.

Children, children, surely Jack knows,
Where to find the little folks’ toes,
How to nip their noses and ears,
And fill their bright eyes with big round tears.

Wrap up warm, for now we all know,
Little Jack Frost knows well where to go.
Snugly wrapped all safe and warm,
We go to our work through sunshine or storm.
