On of the most innovative Christmas songs you will hear. Classy, heartwarming, but beautifully upbeat and the elegant vocal delivery is the embodiment of safe, sweet family values of the American 1940's.
I love it. Top, Top song

Lyrics

WISHING ON A SNOWFLAKE (Norris, Deaton)

I READ A TELEGRAM TODAY THAT YOU MIGHT BE DELAYED
BUT NOTHING'S GONNA HOLD THAT TRAIN CAUSE CHRISTMAS WON'T BE LATE
THAT OLD MAN WINTER HE WON'T WIN
'CAUSE BABY UNTIL THEN

I'M WISHING ON A SNOWFLAKE
THAT YOU'LL MAKE IT HOME IN TIME
I KNOW THE STARS MAY NOT ALIGN
BUT MY OH MY HOW MY HEART PINES

'CAUSE I'M WAITIN ON A SLOW TRAIN
WHILE YOU'RE COUNTIN' EVERY SIGN
SO UNTIL YOUR HOLDIN' ME FIRESIDE
I'M WISHIN' ON A SNOWFLAKE TONIGHT

CLARINET SOLO

I'M WISHING ON A SNOWFLAKE
THE WEATHER WON'T KEEP US APART
IT MAY BE COLD WHILE YOU'RE AFAR
BUT THOUGHTS OF YOU STILL WARM MY HEART

OH I'M LONGING FOR A SWEET KISS
MY ONLY CHRISTMAS WISH
WILL PATIENTLY WAIT TIL YOUR MINE ALL MINE
WHILE I'M WISHIN' ON A SNOWFLAKE TONIGHT

STEAM DANCING IN THE MOONGLOW
I HEAR THAT WHISTLE BLOW
AND HERE COMES THAT TRAIN ROLLIN' RIGHT ON TIME
'CAUSE I'VE BEEN WISHIN' ON A SNOWFLAKE (SHE'S WISHIN' ON A SNOWFLAKE)
YEAH I'VE BEEN WISHIN' ON A SNOWFLAKE

I READ THAT TELEGRAM TODAY, BUT COULDN'T WAIT, AND WISHED IT ALL AWAY
