Jingle Bells”

Jingle Bells by James Lord Pierpont

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bobtail 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

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 then we got upsot

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

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

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bobtail 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

“Up on the Housetop”

Up on the Housetop by Benjamin Hanby

Up on the housetop
Reindeer pause,
Out jumps good old Santa Claus
Down through the chimney
With lots of toys
All for the little ones, Christmas joys

Ho, ho, ho!
Who wouldn’t go
Ho, ho, ho
Who wouldn’t go
Up on the housetop
Click, click, click
Down through the chimney
With good Saint Nick

First comes the stocking
Of little Nell
Oh dear Santa fill it well
Give her a dolly that
Laughs and cries
One that will open and shut her eyes

Ho, ho, ho!
Who wouldn’t go
Ho, ho, ho
Who wouldn’t go
Up on the housetop
Click, click, click
Down through the chimney
With good Saint Nick
