And a new one just begun

And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

Jingle Bells, testo e traduzione

33

Scritta da James Pierpont nel 1857, Jingle Bells è sicuramente una delle più celebri canzoni natalizie.

Testo:

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.

Rit.: Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.
O, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.
O, 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.
