Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow
Ella Fitzgerald 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 goodbying
But as long as you love me so
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

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 goodbying




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

Line by Line Meaning

The weather is really bad outside
But the warmth of the fire makes it lovely inside


As we have nowhere to go, we may as well enjoy the snow
Let it snow, even though it's freezing and unpleasant


The snow doesn't seem like it will stop anytime soon
But at least we have popcorn to enjoy


The ambiance is low, making for a cozy atmosphere
Let it snow, despite the dark and gloomy setting


It's going to be hard to say goodbye when we leave
I'll hate going into the storm when we finally say goodnight


But if you hold me tight, I'll feel warm all the way home
The fire is gradually burning out


We can't keep saying goodbye, my dear
But as long as you love me, it's okay to let it snow
