THE GREAT SNOW MAN

A few years ago there lived a lover by the name of Jimmy Jones
who really snowed the girls and left them cold and gained the title
of The Great Snow Man

I remember the day when the snow melted away
And the great snow man was wed
He said, "Yes, I do" and little Linda said it too
And the great snow man was wed

Now Jimmy Jones was the snow man's name
He put all the other local lovers to shame
He had good looks and a big fine car
And went around breaking all the girlie's hearts
Until one day the great snow man found
Linda Lou who started melting him down
He bought a ring and they set the day
And the great snow man started melting away

I remember the day...

Now the great snow man and his loving spouse
Live in the little subdivision house
They got six kids and his mother-in-law
And expecting another kiddie in the fall
His old Cadillac needs the paint retouched
It's full of baby diapers and bottles and such
And the great snow man has outgrown
All his flashy, catty clothes

I remember the day...
