A Christmas carol

Jingle bells, by James Pierpont

previous next

Jingle bells

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way.
Bells on Bobtail ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight!
 
Jingle bells! Jingle bells!
Jingle all the way!
Oh, 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,
We got into a drifted bank,
And we, we got upsot.
 
Jingle bells! Jingle bells!
Jingle all the way!
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
 
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.
 
Jingle bells! Jingle bells!
Jingle all the way!
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
 
Now the ground is white
Go it while your young,
Take the girls tonight
And sing this sleighing song.
Just get a bobtailed bay,
Two-forty as his speed,
Hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! you'll take the lead.
 
Jingle bells! Jingle bells!
Jingle all the way!
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
