Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

Like many other Christmas songs, originally “Let it snow!” was not related to Christmas, being composed during a heat wave in California by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne in 1945.

It was the winter theme and its lyrics about waiting for the snow that made it become associated with the holidays, being one of the most played Christmas songs.

“Let it snow!” became a radio hit in 1945 when was it recorded by Vaughn Monroe and since then it has been taken over and adapted by numerous notable artists, including Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.

Let it Snow! Lyrics

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn’t show signs of stopping
And I’ve bought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight
How I’ll hate going out in the storm!
But if you’ll really hold me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm

The fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still goodbying
But as long as you love me so
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
