    (-: Parson Brown is a minister, and they pretend the snowman is going to officiate at their wedding. It's about a girlfriend and a boyfriend who are having fun in their relationship, and thinking about getting married. So they get lovey-dovey in front of the fireplace, after taking a nice romantic winter walk where they talk about getting married and all the fun stuff about a life together.

    It's a gooey song, but I love it!

    Parson is another word for Minister or Pastor, a man of the cloth.

    The famous Christmas song Winter Wonderland was first published in 1934. The composer was Felix Bernard (1897-1944) and the lyricist was Richard B. Smith (1901-1935). Probably the most popular versions of this classic Christmas song, Winter Wonderland, were recorded to high acclaim by the Andrews Sisters and Perry Como.

    Here you can read the lyrics:

    Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,

    In the lane, snow is glistening

    A beautiful sight,

    We're happy tonight.

    Walking in a winter wonderland.

    Gone away is the bluebird,

    Here to stay is a new bird

    He sings a love song,

    As we go along,

    Walking in a winter wonderland.

    In the meadow we can build a snowman,

    Then pretend that he is Parson Brown

    He'll say: Are you married?

    We'll say: No man,

    But you can do the job

    When you're in town.

    Later on, we'll conspire,

    As we dream by the fire

    To face unafraid,

    The plans that we've made,

    Walking in a winter wonderland.

    In the meadow we can build a snowman,

    And pretend that he's a circus clown

    We'll have lots of fun with mister snowman,

    Until the other kids knock him down.

    When it snows, ain't it thrilling,

    Though your nose gets a chilling

    We'll frolic and play, the Eskimo way,

    Walking in a winter wonderland.

    lol, truthinessmaybe, those are two completely different songs.

    the first one is Let It Snow. The second one, the one this question is about, is Winter Wonderland.

    and who has places to be on christmas? everythings closed.

    and as has already been mentioned, parson brown refers to a clergy member or a member of the church. adorned in brown robes you know? lol.

    In general i think the whole song is about young love during christmas time. you know? theyre talking about bluebirds singing love songs, and clergyman offering marriage. i never rly thought about that before.

    happy holidays

    Like a minister, because the song mentions the parson can marry them when he's in town.

    Parson Brown is the name of a Pastor. I have no idea what the song is about, but I like it.

    It's just a weird, weird song. A parson is a member of the clergy.

    Here's why the song is so strange:

    "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!"

    That's pretty damned selfish, wouldn't you say? Just because you have no place to go, doesn't mean the rest of us don't need to get to work or school etc.

    Then it turns from being selfish, to being nonsense:

    "In the meadow we will build a snowman

    And pretend that he is Parson Brown

    He'll say, 'are you married?'

    We'll say, 'no man, but you can do the job when you're in town."

    Wait! What? You just built a snowman and you're pretending he's the parson. That means he is in town. Right now. He can (pretend) marry you now!

    I think whoever wrote that song was both stoned and selfish.
