Snowman Dance by Joanie Calem on Tuneful Tuesday

Member Joanie Calem has contributed a series of songs celebrating winter for the month of February, and we’re loving them!

I love watching the pure joy on children’s faces as they participate in dance and freeze games, so I needed a wintertime song, and out this one popped.  Of course, dance and freeze songs are far more sophisticated than just what appears on the surface of things:  children are learning about musical phrasing, about kinesthetic responses to music, about following verbal cues, and in this case, about falling gently to the ground in response to descending notes.

SNOWMEN DANCE AND FREEZE
By Joanie © Jan. 26, 2013

 

Oh, when the snow falls down, the snowmen dance around,
They dance and they prance on the snowy ground,
When the snow falls down, the snowmen dance around,
All around…..They’re dancing and they’re prancing all over the ground
Dancing and prancing all around
Dancing and prancing wherever they please
And then they FREEZE!

When the snow falls down, the snowmen jump around,
They jump and they bump on the snowy ground,
When the snow falls down, the snowmen jump around,
All around…..

Jumping and bumping all over the ground
Jumping and bumping all around
Jumping and bumping wherever they please
And then they FREEZE!

When the snow falls down, the snowmen hop around,
They hop and they bop on the snowy ground,
When the snow falls down, the snowmen hop around,
All around…..Hopping and bopping all over the ground
Hopping and bopping all around
Hopping and bopping wherever they please
And then they FREEZE!

When the snow falls down, the snowmen stomp around,
They stomp and they romp on the snowy ground,
When the snow falls down, the snowmen stomp around,
All around…..

When the snow falls down, the snowmen dance around,
They dance and they prance on the snowy ground,
When the snow falls down, the snowmen dance around,
All around…..

They’re dancing and they’re prancing all over the ground
Dancing and prancing all around
Dancing and prancing through the snow belt
And then they…….MELT………….
