Just like when you were little, listen to Jingle Bells 6 times! Of course, you listened to it on a scratchy old record, then a cd and now you can download it

Or, you can just sing it very loudly!! Here are the lyrics
Jingle Bells

James Pierpont. publ.1857

Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring,
making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight, O

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh (repeat)

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.O

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
o What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh. (repeat)

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, O

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
o What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh. (repeat)

Now the ground is white
Go it while you’re young,
Take the girls tonight
And sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bob-tailed bay
two-forty as his speed
Hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! you’ll take the lead, O

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
o What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

    I put up Christmas lights in the upstairs lobby so people can see them from the street. And hummed Jingle Bells.

    Strongly recommend that no one try playing Jingle Bells on the bagpipes. The police pipe band tried this in our Santa parade and it did not sound exactly jolly. However, they had decorated all the pipes with Christmas lights, which more than made up for it!

    I was listening to it on my ride to kitwe and then my headphones broke
