Jingle Bells 1.Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh, Over 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! Chorus: 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! 2.A day or two ago, I thought I’d take a ride, And soon Miss Fannie Bright was sitting by my side. The horse was lean and lank, misfortune was his lot. He got into a snowdrift bank – and we? We got upset! Chorus 3. So now the moon is bright, enjoy it while you are young. Invite your friends tonight to sing this sleighing song. Just get a bob-tailed nag and give him extra feed. Then hitch him to an open sleigh – and crack! You’ll take the lead! Chorus
