Canzone Tradizionale Natalizia
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.
chorus: Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh,
O 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.
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.
