Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh 
Over the fields we go, laughing all the way
Bells on bob-tail 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! 
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh 
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way! 
O 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 got up shot

[Chorus]

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 lie but quickly drove away

[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 as his speed 
Hitch him to an open sleigh and crack! You'll take the lead

[Chorus]
