We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Jingle Bells

Song Lyrics:

“Jingle Bells”

Dashing through the snow
On a one horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go,
Laughing all the way. 

Bells on bob tail ring,
making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight 

Oh, 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

“We Wish You A Merry Christmas”

We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
And a Happy New Year.

Good tidings we bring,
To you and your kin,
Good tidings for Christmas,
And a Happy New Year.

Now bring us some figgy pudding
Now bring us some figgy pudding
Now bring us some figgy pudding
And bring it right here

Good tidings we bring,
To you and your kin,
Good tidings for Christmas,
And a Happy New Year.

We won't go until we get some
We won't go until we get some
We won't go until we get some
So bring it right here

Good tidings we bring,
To you and your kin,
Good tidings for Christmas,
And a Happy New Year.

We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
And a Happy New Year.

Good tidings we bring,
To you and your kin,
Good tidings for Christmas,
And a Happy New Year.
