Song Lyrics

Original English text

 

 

 

1

Dashing thro’ the snow,

In a one horse open sleigh,

O’er the hills we go,

Laughing all the way;

 

Bells on bob tail ring,

Making spirits bright,

Oh what sport to ride and sing

A sleighing song to night.

 

(Chorus)

Jingle bells, Jingle bells,

Jingle all the way;

Oh! what joy it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh.

 

Jingle bells, Jingle bells,

Jingle all the way

Oh! what joy it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh.

 

 

2

A day or two ago

I tho’t I’d take a ride

And soon Miss Fannie Bright

Was seated by my side,

 

The horse was lean and lank

Misfortune seem’d his lot

He got into a drifted bank

And we – we got up sot. Chorus

 

(Chorus)

Jingle bells, Jingle bells,

Jingle all the way;

Oh! what joy it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh.

 

Jingle bells, Jingle bells,

Jingle all the way

Oh! what joy 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. Chorus

 

(Chorus)

Jingle bells, Jingle bells,

Jingle all the way;

Oh! what joy it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh.

 

Jingle bells, Jingle bells,

Jingle all the way

Oh! what joy it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh.

 

 

4

Now the ground is white,

Go it while you’re young,

Take the girls to night

And sing this sleighing song;

 

Just get a bob tailed bay

Two forty as his speed

Hitch him to an open sleigh

And crack, you’ll take the lead.

 

(Chorus)

Jingle bells, Jingle bells,

Jingle all the way;

Oh! what joy it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh.

 

Jingle bells, Jingle bells,

Jingle all the way

Oh! what joy it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh.
