About Winter Wonderland

"Winter Wonderland" is a song written in 1934 by Felix Bernard and lyricist Richard Bernhard Smith. Due to its seasonal theme, it is often regarded as a Christmas song in the Northern Hemisphere. Since its original recording by Richard Himber, it has been covered by over 200 different artists, including Air Supply, Jo Stafford, Doris Day, Andy Williams, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers, Johnny Mathis with Percy Faith and His Orchestra, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, Mannheim Steamroller, Amy Grant, Michael Bublé, The Eurythmics, Selena Gomez, Alan Jackson, Radiohead, Snoop Dogg and Elvis Presley. The song's lyrics are about a couple enjoying a picturesque winter landscape. They build a snowman, whom they agree to pretend is Parson Brown. They imagine the snowman asking if the couple is married, to which they tell him that they are not, and tell the snowman that he can marry them. Later the lyrics were changed to a nonsensical Circus Clown replacing the Parson and references to marriage were eliminated.

Sleigh bells ring
Are you listening?
In the lane
Snow is glistening
A beautiful sight
Happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song
As we go along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
And pretend that he is Parson Brown
He'll say are you married? We'll say, "No man"
But you can do the job when you're in town

Later on
We'll conspire
As we drink
By the fire
To face unafraid
The plans that we've made
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
And pretend that he's a circus clown
We'll have lots of fun with mister snowman
Until the other kiddies knock him down

Later on
We'll conspire
As we dream
By the fire
To face unafraid
The plans that we made
Walking in a winter wonderland

Honey, it's snowing!
Merry Christmas
