Sleigh Ride
Mitchell Parish/Leroy Anderson (1948)



Just hear those sleigh bells jingle-ing,
Ring ting tingle-ing too;
Come on, it's lovely weather,
For a sleigh ride together with you.

Outside the snow is falling,
And friends are calling "You! Hoo!" 
Come on, it's lovely weather,
For a sleigh ride together with you.
 
Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap let's go,
Let's look at the show,
We're riding in a wonderland of snow.

Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap it's grand,
Just holding your hand,
We're gliding along with the song,
Of a wintry fairy land.

Our cheeks are nice and rosy,
And comfy cozy are we;
We're snuggled up together,
Like two birds of a feather would be.

Let's take the road before us,
And sing a chorus or two;
Come on, it's lovely weather,
For a sleigh ride together with you!
 
There's a birthday party,
At the home of Farmer Gray.
It'll be the perfect ending,
Of a perfect day.

We'll be singing the songs,
We love to sing,
Without a single stop,
At the fireplace while,
We watch the chestnuts pop.
 
Pop! Pop! Pop!

There's a happy feeling,
Nothing in the world can buy;
When they pass around the coffee,
And the pumpkin pie.

It'll nearly be like,
A picture print,
By Currier and Ives.
These wonderful things are the things,
We remember all through our lives.
 
Just hear those sleigh bells jingle-ing,
Ring ting tingle-ing too;
Come on, it's lovely weather,
For a sleigh ride together with you.

Outside the snow is falling,
And friends are calling "You! Hoo!" 
Come on, it's lovely weather,
For a sleigh ride together with you.
 
Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap let's go,
Let's look at the show,
We're riding in a wonderland of snow.

Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap it's grand,
Just holding your hand,
We're gliding along with the song,
Of a wintry fairy land.

Our cheeks are nice and rosy,
And comfy cozy are we;
We're snuggled up together,
Like two birds of a feather would be.

Let's take the road before us,
And sing a chorus or two;
Come on, it's lovely weather,
For a sleigh ride together with you.
