The Original ‘Jingle Bells’ Mary Christmas Song

A day or two ago I thought I’d take a ride And soon, Miss Fanny 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.

A day or two ago, The story I must tell I went out on the snow,

And on my back I fell; A gent was riding by

In a one-horse open sleigh, He laughed as there I sprawling lie, But quickly drove away.

Now the ground is white Go it while you’re young,

Take the girls tonight and sing this sleighing song;

Just get a bobtailed bay Two forty as his speed

Hitch him to an open sleigh And crack! you’ll take the lead

This lesser known version of the song describes picking up girls, racing in the snow and crashing at high speed. The lyric "go while you're young" in the last verse of the secular standard is hardly a holy or silent night.
