Jingle Bells Dashing through the snow In a one-horse open sleigh, O'er the fields we go Laughing all the way. Bells on bobtails ring, Making spirits bright. What fun it is to ride and sing A sleighing song tonight. Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way. Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh. Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way. Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh.
