Winter Wonderland

Lyrics:Richard B. Smith
Music:Felix Bernard

The song was publishe 1934.

Through the decades it has been recorded by over 200 different artists.

The original recording was by Richard Himber
and his Hotel Ritz-Carlton Orchestra on RCA Bluebird in 1934.
At the end of a recording session with time to spare,
it was suggested that this new tune be tried
with an arrangement provided by the publisher.
This excellent "studio" orchestra included many great New York studio musicians
including the legendary Artie Shaw.
The biggest chart hit at the time of introduction
was Guy Lombardo's orchestra, a top ten hit.
Singer-songwriter Johnny Mercer took the song to #4 in Billboard's
airplay chart in 1946.
The same season, Perry Como hit the retail top ten.
Como would record a new version for his 1959 Christmas album.

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 a new bird
He sings a love song
as we go along
walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we 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've made
walking in 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 the other kids 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

Walking in a winter wonderland
walking in a winter wonderland
