Sleigh Ride!

Ok here is my dirty Christmas secret. I am so ashamed. Of all the beautful, holy Christmas music out there; this is my favorite.

Sleigh Ride
Written by Leroy Anderson

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.

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
We're riding along with a song
Of a wintry fairyland!

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

Let's take that 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 birthday 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
By the fireside where we watch the chestnuts pop
(Pop pop pop!)

There's a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy
When we pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie
It'll nearly be like a picture print by Currier & 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.

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

What's your favorite Christmas carol?

LIttle Drummer Boy, We 3 Kings, Mary did you know, and Do you Hear what I hear?

BTW, and this many sound like a dumb question, but was there really a little drummer boy in the bible?

My favorite is O Holy Night. Ian's on the other hand is Dominic the Italian Christmas Donkey. His teacher plays it for them and he has made me buy it from iTunes.

Happy song...love it too.

Fav is Silent Night, played on guitar w/ candlelight.

The kids always preferred "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer."

Deb said...

Without a doubt...O Holy Night

I also like Mary Did You Know? - written by that guy whose name escapes me....comedian/singer who toured with The Gaithers....
I can't imagine being Mary and knowing that when she kissed her little baby, she was kissing the face of God.... gives me chills just to think about it!
