  • 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

    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 upshot

    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
