Jingle Bells / The One Horse Open Sleigh


Melody:James Pierpoint (1822-1893)
as recorder quartet for DDTT and SSDA/ATTB
Lyrics:James Pierpoint (1822-1893)
Origin:American



Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh,
O'er the hills/fields we go
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bob tail ring,
Making spirits bright,
Oh what sport/fun to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight. [Oh]
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh what joy/fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh. [Oh]
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh what joy/fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh.
