Make It Snow

Make It Snow

Make it snow, make it snow.
Come on, Heikki Lunta, do a little dance in the ten below.
Miss La Niña, let the cold wind blow.
Together with Heikki Lunta, lay down a blanket white with snow.

Firelight fishing chanting for winter.
Come on, Heikki, ready to go.
Time to scrape the frost off the window.

Heikki Lunta, Go Away

Oh, I sang my song,
And I made the snow come down
And I did my dance,
Now I’m gonna lose my pants
If I don’t make it stop-
Look out! Here comes a snowball filled wit’ rocks!

Heikki Lunta, Go Away,
That’s all I hear them say.

Here it is, ladies and gentlemen! The original “Heikki Lunta Snow Dance Song!”

Now I’ll sing my song
To make the snow come down
And I’ll do my snow dance
Whoops! I almost lost my pants
I’ll holler and yell,
And really give it---

It’s Heikki’s snow dance song, 
Heikki’s snow dance song

Pakou's Folktale

The Mother and the Naughty Boy

My mother told me this folktale. I translated it from Hmong into English. 

Once there was a mother who had a son. She was very nice but the son was very naughty. 

One day his mother ran away. When he found out he cried and cried.
