Dashing Thro The Snow


Dashing thro’ the snow,
In a one-horse open sleigh,
O’er 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!

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;
He got into a drifted bank,
And we, we got upsot. [Chorus]

Now the ground is white,
Go it while you’re young;
Take the girls tonight,
And sing this sleighing song.
Just get a bob tailed bay,
Two forty for his speed;
Then hitch him to an open sleigh,
And crack! you’ll take the lead. [Chorus]
