Lyrics

Out in the Winter Air
When the cold winds blow and the snow birds fly
Singin’ whack fol the diddle didle day
And the frost it clings to the hills near by
Singin’ whack fol the diddle didle day
You can feel the chill as the ponds they sigh
As the stars shine bright against the evening sky
With snowflakes on your tongue they lie
Singin’ whack fol the diddle didle day
Chorus
And the melody is ringing and the sound is crystal clear
It’s the sound of children playin, out in the winter air

With the rosey cheeks down the hill they slide
Singing whack fol the diddle didle day
It takes me back to days gone by
Singin’ whack fol the diddle didle day
In crazy our carpets from Christmas day
You could hear us shouting from miles away
Rushing pass those wooden sleighs
Singin’ whack fol the diddle didle day
Chorus
All the mother’s calling from across the cove
Singin’ whack fol the diddle didle day
You plead for time but in the house your drove
Singin’ whack fol the diddle didle day
Now the chunks of ice on your mitts they form
Your hands are cold but the house is warm
You’re wishin’ hard for that winter storm
Singin’ whack fol the diddle didle day
Chorus
To the supper table you all gather round
Singin’ whack fol the diddle didle day
But your eyes are peeled as the snow comes down
Singin’ whack fol the diddle didle day
With your snowsuit drying on the kitchen chair
Your hat and mitts and your long-johns there
You surely like out in the winter air
Singin’ whack fol the diddle didle day
Chorus
