Jingle Bells Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh. Dashing through the snow In a one –horse open sleigh Over 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 And here is the song which the English sing on Christmas.
We wish you a merry Christmas We wish you a merry Christmas And a happy New Year. 1. Glad tidings we bring, To you and your kin; We wish you a merry Christmas And a happy New Year! 2. We all want some figgy pudding So bring it right here! 3. We won't go until we get some So bring it out here! This song is very popular too.
Bye, Father Christmas! See you next year!
