Jingle Bells | Christmas Song

Dashing through the snow,
In a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way,
Bells on bobtails ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to laugh 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!
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,
He got into a drifted bank,
And then we got upsot.
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.
Now the ground is white,
Go it while you’re 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.
Written by James Lord Pierpont in 1857.
