Jingle Bells

Tra le canzoni tradizionali natalizie statunitensi vi proponiamo Jingle Bells scritta nell’anno 1857 dal compositore americano James Pierpont ( Boston, Massachusetts, 25 aprile 1822-Winter Haven, Florida, 5 agosto 1893) originariamente intitolata “The One Horse Open Sleigh”.

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.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

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 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.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

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, 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.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

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.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.
