Jingle Bells

1) Dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh,
O'er the fields [hills] we go, laughing all the way.
Bells on bobtail ring, making spirits bright,
What fun it is [Oh what sport] to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight.

Ref.: Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.
O, what fun [joy] it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh. (2x)

2) A day or two ago I thought I'd take a ride,
And soon Miss Fannie 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, we] got upsot.

3) A day or two ago, The story I must tell
I went out on the snow, And on my back I fell;
A gent was riding by In a one-horse open sleigh,
He laughed as there I sprawling lay, But quickly drove away.

4) Now the ground is white, go it while you’re young,
Take the girls tonight and sing this sleighing song.
Just get a bobtailed bay, two-forty for his speed,
Then hitch him to an open sleigh, and crack! You’ll take the lead.

"Jingle Bells" (etwa Klimpert; gemeint sind die Schellen am Pferdegeschirr) ist ein Winterlied, das vom amerikanischen Komponisten James Lord Pierpont (1822–1893) unter dem Titel "The One Horse Open Sleigh" komponiert wurde.
