GDashing through the snow
In a one-horse open Csleigh
AmOver the fields we Dgo
Laughing all the Gway.
Bells on bob-tail ring
Making spirits Cbright
What Amfun it is to Gride and sing
A Dsleighing song toGnight.

CHORUS
GJingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way,
COh what fun it Gis to ride
In a Aone-horse open Dsleigh, O
GJingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way,
COh what fun it Gis to ride
In a Done-horse open Gsleigh.

A Gday or two ago
I thought I’d take a Cride
And Amsoon Miss Fanny DBright
Was seated by my Gside;
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his Clot,
We Amgot into a Gdrifted bank
And Dthere we got upGsot.

Repeat CHORUS

A Gday or two ago
The story I must Ctell
I Amwent out on the Dsnow
And on my back I Gfell;
A gent was riding by
In a one-horse open Csleigh
He Amlaughed as there I Gsprawling lie
But Dquickly drove aGway.

Repeat CHORUS

GNow the ground is white,
Go it while you’re Cyoung,
AmTake the girls toDnight
And sing this sleighing Gsong.
Just get a bob-tailed bay,
Two-forty for his Cspeed,
Then Amhitch him to an Gopen sleigh
And Dcrack! You’ll take the Glead.

Repeat CHORUS
