Turned snow into rain


Hush my boy, and I'll tell you some tales

Where God wins and Satan fails

I know one you might enjoy

SIt on my lap, theres a good boy


It happend many years ago

A widowed man was trudging through the snow

On his way he saw two travelers

He thought them to be friends, or as lovers

A man in black and a woman in white

They appeared to be in a fight

He called out to them HO!

They turned to look and wouldn't you know

One was Satan and the other an angel

The man in black turned with the face of the devil

He smiled and asked Are you cold, good sir

If you go this way I'll give you a fur

You'll love it, it's very nice and not too costly

Put it on, it will warm you nicly

The man was tempted, he reached with greed

But the angel had what he really needed

She said  No I have the right path

If you go with me you'll see Her at last

If you follow him you'll never see Her

And she'll be lost for ever!

Come, we'll find your true lover

And you'll be happy forever

The man stopped and faced the heavanlly figure

And then they set off together

When they reunited there love was strong

And the man knew that he hadn't picked wrong

The warmth of their love turned the snow to rain

Drenching the devil has he howled in pain


Ahh look at him, he's fallen asleep

At least he didn't see me weep

I guess I'll take him up to bed

And pray this lesson stays in his head
