"Frosty the Snowman" - The Evil Behind the False Jollity

Frosty the Snowman
Does "Pied Piper" ring any Christmas bells?

Yesterday, we looked closely at the outrageous immorality of the Rudolph song, and we're looking today at an even more evil song, this one about a Christmas interloper from Hell:
Frosty the Snowman

Frosty the snowman was a jolly, happy soul,
with a corncob pipe and a button nose
and two eyes made out of coal.
Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale they say.
He was made of snow but the children
know how he came to life one day.
Came to life? All abruptly and all? Hardly a fairy tale! And with those coal-dark eyes, more like a nightmare! And the thing smokes, too, despite being frozen! Rather demonic!
There must have been some magic in that
old silk hat they found,
for when they placed it on his head,
he began to dance around.
Magic? Dark magic, I'd say! Undoubtedly, the hat was cursed!
Oh, Frosty the snowman
was alive as he could be,
and the children say he could laugh
and play just the same as you and me.
See how this insidious song brings "you and me" into its spellbinding realm? Now, think about that line "alive as he could be." Does it not imply that this 'snowman' is not entirely alive? That it might need to feed on the life of others? That it might need "you and me"?
Thumpity thump thump,
thumpity thump thump.
Look at Frosty go
Thumpity thump thump,
thumpity thump thump.
over the hills and snow.
We might hope we're now rid of this abominable snowman, but despite its thumpity-thumping all over the hills, we find in the next stanza that it's still around:
Frosty the snowman knew
the sun was hot that day,
so he said,
"Let's run, and
we'll have some fun
now before I melt away."
Before it melts away? We can only hope.
Down to the village
with a broomstick in his hand,
running here and there,
all around the square, saying,
"Catch me if you can."
The broomstick should be a clue to the 'witchy' character we're dealing with.
He led them down the streets of town
right to the traffic cop,
and he only paused a moment when
he heard him holler, "Stop!"
For Frosty the snow man
had to hurry on his way.
But he waved goodbye. saying.
"Don't you cry,
I'll be back again some day."
We see the sort of evil Frosty's leading these children into, flagrantly challenging the authority of the law! And even threatening to return!
Thumpity thump thump,
thumpity thump thump.
Look at Frosty go
thumpity thump thump,
thumpity thump thump
Over the hills and snow!
The way it's behaving, looks to me like Frosty the "No-Man" isn't about to melt any time soon - certainly not that frozen soul with its chilly jollity. The thing may seem to be thumpity-thumping away, but it'll be back! We know because it headed for the hills once before - most likely to reconstitute itself with snow - and was yet mysteriously again here among us!

As though it had never left . . .
