We're going to do|a Christmas tune for you now.

You got to trust me. This one's|just a little bit different.

lt combines the Christmas|colors, red...


...and blues!

Frosty the Snowman|Was a jolly, happy soul

He was smoking his pipe, baby|His two eyes were made of coal

And Frosty the Snowman|ls a fairy tale they say

He was made of ice and snow|Then he came to life one day

Frosty the Snowman|Was as bad as he could be

And the children say|He could laugh and play

Just the same as you and me

Man, check it out.

It's the Jack Frost Band.

They're digging it. They're Ioving it.|We gotta sign these guys.

There must've been some magic|ln the air that night

For that old silk cap they found

For when

They laid it upon his head

He began

To hootchy-koo around

And Frosty the Snowman

ls a fairy tale they say

He was made of ice and snow

Till he came...

... to...


...one day

That was Medford's own Jack Frost Band.|Best band no one's ever heard of.

That's recorded live last night|at Denver's Music Hall.

Don 't ask how we got the tape.|They are due for a break.
