Jingle Bells

Text und Melodie: James Lord Pierpont,um 1850
1. Dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh,
o'er 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.
O, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.:|
3. 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, ...:|
2. A day or two ago I thought I'd take a ride,
and soon Miss Fannie 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, ...:|
4. 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 for his speed,
then hitch him to an open sleigh, and crack! You'll take the lead.
