This is one of the many popular Christmas carols which children as well as grown ups love to sing during the Christmas season. Actually it was originally written for children by a minister for his Sunday School children to be sung during Thanksgiving in 1857.

Jingle Bells

Song Writer ~ James Pierpoint



Stanza 1:

Dashing through the snow

In a one horse open sleigh

O'er the fields we go

Laughing all the way

Bells on bob tails ring

Making spirits bright

What fun it is to laugh and sing

A sleighing song tonight



Stanza 2:

Oh, jin-gle bells, jin-gle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Jin-gle bells, jin-gle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh



Stanza 3:

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 got into a drifted bank

And then we got upset



Stanza 4:

Oh, jin-gle bells, jin-gle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Jin-gle bells, jin-gle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh yeah



Stanza 5:

Jin-gle bells, jin-gle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Jin-gle bells, jin-gle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh
