    My Chubby Little Snowman
    My chubby little snowman, had a button nose.
    When along came a bunny, and what do you suppose?
    That chubby little bunny was searching for some lunch;
    And he ate my snowman's nose: nibble, nibble, crunch!

    Snowflake Dance
    Snowflakes, snowflakes all around; in the air and on the ground.
    Some are big and some are small. Roll them into a snowball.
    When the sun comes out to play, all the snowflakes melt away.
