Scritta da James Pierpont nel 1857, Jingle Bells è sicuramente una delle più celebri canzoni natalizie.
Testo:
Dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh,
over 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.

Rit.:
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 Fannie 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.

Rit.:
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.

Rit.:
Now the ground is white, go it while you’re young,
Take the girls tonight and sing this sleighing song.
Just get a bobtailed bay, two-forty for his speed,
Then hitch him to an open sleigh, and crack! You’ll take the lead.
