Lyrics verse:
OVER THE GROUND
LIES A MANTLE
OF WHITE,
A HEAVEN
OF DIAMONDS
SHINE DOWN
THROUGH THE NIGHT,
TWO HEARTS
ARE THRILLING
IN SPITE
OF A CHILL IN
THE WEATHER.
LOVE KNOWS NO SEASON,
LOVE KNOWS NO CLIME,
ROMANCE CAN BLOSSOM
ANY OLD TIME.
HERE IN THE OPEN,
WE'RE WALKING
AND HOPING
TOGETHER.

Chorus:
SLEIGH BELLS RING,
ARE YOU LISTENING?
IN THE LANE
SNOW IS GLISTENING.
A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT,
WE'RE HAPPY TONIGHT,
WALKING
IN A WINTER WONDERLAND!
GONE AWAY
IS THE BLUEBIRD.
HERE TO STAY
IS THE NEW BIRD.
HE SINGS
A LOVE SONG,
AS WE GO
ALONG,
WALKING
IN A WINTER WONDERLAND!

IN THE MEADOW
YOU CAN BUILD A SNOWMAN
THEN PRETEND
THAT HE IS PARSON BROWN.
HE'LL SAY,
ARE YOU 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
WALKING
N A WINTER WONDERLAND!

IN THE MEADOW
WE CAN BUILD A SNOWMAN
AND PRETEND THAT HE'S
A CIRCUS CLOWN.
WE'LL HAVE LOTS OF FUN
WITH MISTER SNOWMAN
UNTIL THE OTHER KIDDIES
KNOCK HIM DOWN!

WHEN IT SNOWS
AIN'T IT THRILLING
THOUGH YOUR NOSE
GETS A CHILLING?
WE'LL FROLIC
AND PLAY
THE ESKIMO WAY
WALKING
IN A WINTER WONDERLAND!
