Jingle Bells    (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

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;
We ran into a drifted bank and there we got upsot

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

Oh, Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh
Oh, Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh

In a one-horse open sleigh
