Let it Snow

Written by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne

Hi Guys,

Here is the third of the five Seasonal Songs and Carols in my favourites list.

Let It Snow!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

It doesn't show signs of stopping,
And I brought some corn for popping;
The lights are turned way down low,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

When we finally say good night,
How I'll hate going out in the storm;
But if you really hold me tight,
All the way home I'll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we're still good-bye-ing,
But as long as you love me so.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Another feel-good factor tune, Let It Snow was created by lyricist Sammy Cahn and the composer Jule Styne in 1945. The words and lyrics of the song exude that strong feeling of warmth and surety that we associate with the Holiday season.

With its seasonal lyrics, "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" it is commonly regarded as a Christmas song. Yet despite all of its cheery, holiday feel, it is really a love song with no mention of Christmas in the content.

Until next time have fun!
