Jingle Bells

Julia Wade  •  Song

$1.49

We thought this particular Christmas classic needed refreshment. The idea of Jingle Bells as a waltz excited us and so we started with that. The song is in the Public Domain, so we took some liberties with the Lyrics and, along with the new and more relaxed meter of the waltz, made the song about simply a midnight ride through a winter wonderland in a horse drawn sleigh enjoying the beauty of an old-fashioned moment.

Jingle Bells
Original Music and Lyrics by James Lord Pierpont
Additional Music and New Lyrics by Peter Link

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O’er 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

Oh jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

Hey! jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

A night or two ago
We thought we’d take a ride
Dashing through the snow
Across the countryside

The moonlight through the trees
And all the wintry white
Was such a wondrous sight to see
We forgot it was the night

Oh what a night it was
Oh what a time it was

We lost all time that night
But finally turned around
Exhausted by the night’s delight
And sadly homeward bound

The air was cold and grey
The quiet most profound
The clip clop of the horse’s hooves
And bells the only sound

Ooooooh jingle bells, jingle bells,
They jingle all the way;
Oh my what a great night it was to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Laughing all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
As we slide across the countryside
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh
