About Snowfall
“Snowfall” is an unusual song: it’s a cool jazz song, though written in 1941, long before there was such as thing as cool jazz. It’s an evocative and moody song, though quite beautiful.

Lyrics

Snowfall
Softly
Gently drift down

Snowflakes
Whisper
‘Neath my window

Covering trees
Misty lights
Velvet breeze
‘Round my doorstep

Gently
Softly
Silent
Snowfall

Covering trees
Misty lights
Velvet breezes
‘Neath my window

Gently
And softly
Silent
Snowfall

Drift down
Drift down
Drift down
Snowfall
