Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
Through 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.
Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh, (2)
- 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 ran into a drifted bank And there 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 at me as I there sprawling laid
But quickly drove away.
-Now the ground is white,Go it while you're young,
Take the girls along And sing this sleighing song.
Just bet a bob-tailed bay, Two-forty as his speed,
Hitch him to an open sleigh and crack!
You'll take the lead.
