JINGLE BELLS James Pierpont (1857)


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:

O! Jingle bells, jingle bells,

Jingle all the way!

O what fun it is to ride,

In a one-horse open sleigh, hey!

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 upset!


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 lay

But quickly drove away!


Chorus.
