My story is a winter in Alaska,
My friend Elise and I
Hardly anyone knows
Winter was too dull and what we needed was
An art event in town
We picked a day, a Saturday
When everyone would be in town
We picked a random time, 11:52
To make snow angels
In the best field in Gustavus
 
Come make snow angels,
Snow angels with us
 
We made a bunch of postcards
Asking folks to come
We even sent them to ourselves
We were nervous as we waited
Would anybody come?
Saturday came, it was snowing
Snow was on the ground
We were wondering, what would people do
Would they make snow angels
In the best field in Gustavus
 
Come make snow angels,
Snow angels with us
 
People were waiting for a direction
They held their arms in a snow angel pose
They were waiting for a command
When someone said, “1 ,2, 3”
And everyone dropped and made snow angels
And then we made some more
We stayed and made snow angels
And then we marveled at what we saw
 
Snow angels, snow angels
Come make snow angels with us
