Florida Kids Jingle Bells

Story Behind The Song

I sing all over Florida for kids who have never seen the snow. I wanted to write a fun song with a familiar feel that they could sing at Christmastime. They'll never see a one horse-open sleigh, so I wanted to be realistic for them.

Lyrics

I never felt the snow
Melting on my face.
I never got to see
A beautiful snowflake.
I live in Florida
The weather?s rather warm.
I wonder what it would be like
To play in a snowstorm.

CHORUS: Oh Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way.
Mommy take me to the snow, so I can run and play, Hey. (repeat)

At school I made a flake.
We cut and snipped just so.
I opened up the folds
And made a piece of snow!
It wasn?t very cold
And certainly not wet.
But Mommy says that it will be
The only snow I get.

CHORUS

It could be that some day
We?ll drive up US One
And keep on heading north
To find some winter fun.
And when I find the snow
I hope you?ll come along,
We?ll make a big fat snowman
And sing our happy song!

CHORUS


This is lots of fun. I'm giving it high marks because I can't see how this can fail to find plays at Christmas at least on local radio. It's perfect for a bit of fun at Christmas. The kids singing is great and tuneful.

Fun stuff! A great take on a classic holiday favorite. You'd think it would be quite a challenge to improve upon such a traditional song... but that's what we have here! An uplifting song with tastes from the past and sounds of the current season. And kids singing in such a song is flat-out perfect.
