The Carpenters - Sleigh ride
Tekst: Mitchell Parish / Muziek: Leroy Anderson
(1978)






Just hear those sleigh bells jing-a-ling
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-yup, giddy-yup, giddy-yup, let’s go
Let’s look at the show
We’re riding in a wonderland of snow
Giddy-yup, giddy-yup, giddy-yup, it’s grand
Just holding your hand



Our cheeks are nice and rosy
And comfy-cosy 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 we 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 jing-a-ling
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
