Jingle bells

Dashing through the snow,
in a one-horse open sleigh.
O’er the fields we go,
laughing all the way.
Bells on bob-tail ring,
making spirits bright.
What fun it is to ride and sing
a sleighing song tonight.

 

Chorus
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
in a one-horse open sleigh.
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
in a one-horse open sleigh.

 

A day or two ago,
I thought I’d take a ride.
And soon Miss Fanny Bright,
was seated by my side.
The horse was lean and lank,
misfortune seemed his lot.
He got into a drifted bank
and we, we got upsot.

 

Chorus

 

A day or two ago,
the story I must tell.
I went out on the snow,
and on my back I fell;
A gent was riding by,
in a one-horse open sleigh.
He laughed as there
I sprawling lie,
but quickly drove away.

 

Chorus

 

Now the ground is white,
go it while you’re young.
Take the girls tonight,
and sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bob-tailed nag
two-forty for his speed.
Hitch him to an open sleigh
and crack! You’ll take the lead.

 

Chorus
