Just hear those sleigh bells jingling
Ring-ting-tingling too
Come on it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you

Outside the snow is falling
And friends are calling yoo-hoo
Come on it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you

Let's take the road before us
And sing a chorus or two
Come on it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you

Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up, let's go
Let's look at the show
We're riding in a wonderland of snow

Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up, it's grand
Just holding your hand

Our cheeks are nice and rosy
And comfy cozy are we
We're snuggled up together
Like birds of a feather would be

Let's take the road before us
And sing a chorus or two
Come on it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you

There's a Christmas party
At the home of Farmer Gray
It'll be the perfect ending
Of a perfect day
We'll be singing the songs
We love to sing
Without a single stop
At the fireplace while we watch
The chestnuts pop
Pop pop pop

There's a happy feeling nothing
In the world can buy
As they pass around the coffee
And the pumpkin pie
It'll nearly be like a picture print
By Currier and Ives
These wonderful things are the things
We remember all through our lives

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling
Ring-ting-tingling too
Come on it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you

Let's take the road before us
And sing another chorus or two
Come on it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you
