Frosty the Snowman
Is a fairy tale, they say.
He was made of snow but the children know
How he came to life one day.
For a song to tell a fantasy story about a snowman that came to life would be one thing. But the first two lines above throw a superfluous claim into the mix. For those two lines to make sense, Frosty The Snowman would need to be the subject of a pre-existent (i.e. predating the song) story, a purported "fairy tale". But I've researched the matter a bit, and all indications are that the tale of Frosty The Snowman ORIGINATED in the writing of this song. So, far from there being any pre-existent story about him, Frosty The Snowman (or any tale about him) was a previously unknown non-entity leading up to the song's creation. So it is both insincere and nonsensical, as well as a tad pompous, for the song to attribute its own creation to a pre-existing purported "fairy tale". The "they" of "they say" is as much a fantasy as the song's title character!
