VARIOUS TEXTS: SONGS AND POEMS: CHRISTMAS CAROL: JINGLE BELLS


2. 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 we, we got upsot.

Chorus

3. Now the ground is white,
Go it while you're young;
Take the girl 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.

Chorus

Vocab:
drifted bank - Schneeverwehung
bay - a reddish-brown horse
two-forty for...- two dollars forty if the horse is very quick
hitch - to fasten with a hook
