Lyrics

Canadian folk song, Lyrics by Homer H. Harbour, publ. 1921)

Ting-a-ling-a-ling go the sleigh bells sweet
Ting-a-ling-a-ling in the snowy street
Here comes a sleigh to take us riding,
Merrily along on its runners gliding
Stops for a moment in the snow
Tumble-umble in and then away we go!

Ting-a-ling-a-ling as we glide along
Ting-a-ling-a-ling is the sleigh bells’ song
See how the horses pull together
Galloping along in the frosty weather
Trot I go the hoofs with cheery sound
Clatter, clatter, clatter o’er the frozen ground

Ting-a-ling-a-ling by the frozen lake
Ting-a-ling-a-ling, what a noise we make.
All afternoon our bells are tinkling,
With a merry tune till the stars are twinkling;
Back to the city turn we fast,
Ting-a-ling-a-ling and now we’re home at last!
