Season's Greetings from Perry Como ~ 1959
 
Winter Wonderland ~ 1959 Version
 
Sleigh bells ring, are ya listenin' ?
In the lane snow is glistenin' 
a beautiful sight, we're happy tonight 
walkin' 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 
walkin' in a winter wonderland! 
 
In the meadow we can build a snowman
then pretend that he is Parson Brown 
he'll say "Are ya married?" 
we'll say "No man! 
But you can do the job, 
when you're in town!" 
 
Later on, we'll conspire,
as we dream, by the fire, 
to face unafraid, 
the plans that we made 
walkin' in a winter wonderland! 
 
< instrumental break >
 
. . .  are ya listenin' ?
. . .  snow is glistenin' 
< instrumental break >
 
. . . where's the bluebird ?
. . . there is a new bird 
 
In the meadow we can build a snowman
then pretend that he is Parson Brown 
he'll say "Are ya married?" 
we'll say "No man! 
But you can do the job, 
whenever you're in town!" 
 
Later on, we will conspire,
as we dream, by the fire, 
to face unafraid, 
the plans that we made 
walkin' hand in hand
through our winter wonderland!
