Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow
Aaron Neville Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let it snow! let it snow! let it snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping,
And I've bought some corn for popping,
The lights are turned way down low,


Let it snow! let it snow! let it snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight,
How I'll hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight,
All the way home I'll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we're still good-bying,

But as long as you love me so,
Let it snow! let it snow! let it snow!

Overall Meaning

Aaron Neville’s rendition of “Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow” is a classic wintertime tune that captures the essence of the holiday season. The song follows a couple who is trying to find ways to pass the time during a snowstorm. What makes this song so memorable is the great contrast between the cold, blizzardy weather outside and the warm, cozy atmosphere inside next to a crackling fire. The first verse establishes the contrast between the “frightful” weather outside and the “delightful” warmth inside, and the chorus encourages the continuation of the snowfall. The second verse continues this feeling of indoor comfort and the third verse, which relies on a bit of humor, describes the couple’s reluctance to brave the storm.


The chorus of “Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow” reinforces the central theme of the song, as the couple simply wishes to stay inside and bask in the warmth of the fireplace. Additionally, the chorus provides continuity, as it is repeated throughout the song. The lyrics embody the feelings of a cozy and warm holiday season with a loved one, underscored by the snowfall outside which only serves to heighten the sense of comfort and togetherness.


Line by Line Meaning

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
The weather is very terrible outside


But the fire is so delightful,
The fire is glowing and provides a great warmth


And since we've no place to go,
We are stranded and have nowhere to go outside


Let it snow! let it snow! let it snow!
We might as well enjoy the snowfall since we can't do much about it


It doesn't show signs of stopping,
The snowfall seems to be continuing with no end in sight


And I've bought some corn for popping,
We have some popcorn to enjoy while we wait out the storm


The lights are turned way down low,
The lights are dimmed, creating a cozy atmosphere


Let it snow! let it snow! let it snow!
We're still resigned to making the best of things, given the circumstances


When we finally kiss goodnight,
Our evening has come to an end


How I'll hate going out in the storm!
I'll be really unhappy about leaving the warm, cozy confines of the fire


But if you'll really hold me tight,
If you embrace me tightly and keep me warm, it'll make it easier to venture out


All the way home I'll be warm.
I'll feel warm and safe as long as you're with me


The fire is slowly dying,
The fire is starting to dim


And, my dear, we're still good-bying,
It's time to say goodbye to each other and end the evening


But as long as you love me so,
As long as we have each other's love and support, we can face any challenges like this snowstorm


Let it snow! let it snow! let it snow!
Despite the difficulties, we'll still try to enjoy the snowfall and make the best out of a tough situation
