Jingle Bells
(words and music: John Pierpont, 1858)

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh,
O'er the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bobtails ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight!

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.

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,
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!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh.

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.

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