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!

Dashing through the snow ( jingle, jing, jing, jingle! )
In a one-horse open sleigh ( jingle, jing, jing, jingle! )
O'er the fields we go ( o'er the fields, jingle, jingle! )
Laughin' all the way!
Bells on bob-tail ring ( jingle, jing, jing, jingle! )
Makin' spirits bright ( la, la, la la! )
What fun it is to ride an' 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 day or two ago ( a day or two ago . . . )
I thought I'd take a ride (I thought I'd take a ride . . . )
And soon miss fanny bride ( and soon miss fanny bride . . . )
Was seated by my side . . . ( the horse was lean and lank )
Misfortune seemed his lot,
He got into a drifted bank,
And we . . .
We got up sot!

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
Hey!

Now the ground is white ( jingle, jing, jing, jingle! )
Go it while you're young ( jingle, jing, jing, jingle! )
Take the girls tonight ( take the girls tonight . . . )
And sing this sleighing song
Just get a bob-tailed nag ( jingle, jing, jing, jingle! )
Two-forty for his speed
Then hitch
An' crack you'll take the lead!

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!

"Jingle Bells" is one of the best known and commonly sung winter songs in the world. It was written by James Lord Pierpont (1822–1893) and copyrighted under the title 'One Horse Open Sleigh' on September 16, 1857. Despite being inextricably connected to Christmas, it is not specifically a Christmas song. It is one of many "joyful songs" written in New England during the late 19th century.
